I was introduced to Khichdi a few weeks ago and find it to be a great accompanyment to most curries. It’s very filling, simple to prepare and a great source of protein.


  • 60g long grain or brown rice
  • 30g red lentils
  • 15g green lentils
  • 225ml of cold water
  • A knob of butter/margarine
  • A pinch of salt (to taste)


Combine the rice and lentils in a pan. Add the salt, butter and water. Cover the pan and simmer until all the water is absorbed.

The above will make one portion. The basic rule of thumb is 3 parts rice, 2 parts red lentil, 1 part green lentil and 6 parts water.
