Kodri Swimming In Veggies – Ayurvedic Recipe

Kodri or Foxtail Millet kichadi, i already posted and this is same thing with lots of veggies and little ayurvedic trick i did. So as you know, Ayurveda is a way of life. So made kodri with loads of veggies and used little bit of my ayurvedic knowledge. Here’s how i did:

  • Soak mung dal for 30-40 mins so it will get cooked fast.
  • Take a thick bottom pan, boil water and then add mung dal. Cook it for 5 mins and then add kodri.
  • Now add some fresh shredded ginger, freshly crushed black pepper and salt.
  • When it’s all cooked,switch of stove and add veggies. Adjust salt, close lid and let veggies cook in the khichadi steam for 10 mins. This way veggies are just tender and not over cooked.
  • The thing mainly i pointed out was, i hear ppl saying “loads of veggies” when all they had was few peas and carrot.
  • Loads of veggie meaning there are more veggies, more variety and less of other stuff. Isn’t it?
  • I added mushroom, carrot, broccoli, cabbage and what not.
  • You can add a tsp of ghee on top while eating if you like and keep more or less watery depending on your like.
  • As you can see i used only ginger and black pepper for spices which we use in fasting and are relatively mild.
  • Question of the day: “Have you learned to swim thro’ life?”
  • Enjoy !
