Post-diwali comfort food

Saturday was the big diwali menu. Today was diwali lunch at a friend's place. Usual stuff - ate too much, too much sugar in the system as well! So dinner was simple, light, nutritious, comfort food - my favorite Khichadi.

Split green mung dal Khichadi

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons split green mung dal (with husk still on)
1/2 cup minus 2 tablespoons basmati rice
4.5 cups water, heated
2 tspn salt
1 tspn dhaniya (coriander) - jeera (cumin) coarsely ground powder
0.5 tspn red chilli powder

1. Soak the dal and rice in water for 15 minutes.
2. Rinse and drain a few times
3. Put the dal, rice and all other ingredients, including water in a pressure cooker.
4. Pressure cook on medium high to high for 15 minutes. Turn off the flame, and let stay until steam cools off.
6. Serve in bowls topped with a little ghee.
