1/2 cup split yellow moong dal
1.5 tablespoon peanut oil
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 inch ginger, finely minced
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 green chillies, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
3 cups mixed vegetables

1/2 cup hot water or more (if needed) at the end

Tempering the dal

2 teaspoon ghee

Wash and soak the rice and dal for about 20-30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add in the finely chopped ginger and garlic. Saute for a minute. Add in the finely chopped onions. Saute for a couple of minutes till the onions are soft. No need to brown the onions.

Add in the vegetables and mix well to combine. Add in the 3 cups of water. Add in the soaked and drained dal and rice.

Cover the pressure cooker and cook for 5 whistles. Allow the pressure from the cooker to settle before opening.

Mix the khichdi well. If the khichdi is thick, dilute it with a little hot water to the consistency you like.

Tempering: Heat ghee in a small kadai. Add in the cumin seeds, sliced garlic and sliced shallots. Add in the curry leaves. Saute on a low flame till the shallots are nice and golden.

Top the khichdi with the tempering.
