Khichadi is such a wonderful simple 1 pot meal. I love to make it different way. First time I made with quinoa. So easy to make in instant pot . I start before going for shower so that if I spill things over clothes it’s fine .
I took half quinoa, half white rice and half mung dal. If you don’t know what mung dal is or don’t have it then use either dry split pea or split yellow lentil/pea available in regular American grocery store. Soak split yellow pea for 1 hr since they take a while to cook.
I cook traditional Khichadi way adding spices and seasoning. Find your favorite way of cooking this humble Khichadi.
Made Cajun spice mix at home . It’s very easy. Blend of spices and you can make as much spicy as you want . Peanuts are high in Protein and it’s fun to peel and eat them . Keeps you full for a long time .
I use dry raw peanuts and cook in instant pot . First I cook just with water for 45 minutes and then add spices . Cook again for 15 minutes and let it cool down naturally. Let peanuts absorb all spices, salt.
