I get very excited when I am able to feed something healthy to my toddler son. He has been enjoying eating this millets khichdi.

Its a good grain replacement for the regular rice based khichdi. You can use any millet rice to make it. I used barnyard millet, also called vrat ke chawal or sama rice. You can also add mixed veggies to it.

This is a great way to add diversity to the grain intake of kids....adults too ;-), else we keep eating only wheat & rice which is highly processed these days!! Try & let me know how it was.


Millet rice - 1 cup

Moong dal - 1/2 cup

Water - 5 to 6 cups

Red chilli - 1 or 2

Mustard seeds - 1/2 to 1 tsp

Curry leaves - 10 to 15

Cold pressed oil - 1 to 2 tbsp

Onion - 1

Rock salt - 1 tsp or as per taste

Haldi - 1/2 tsp


Take a pan. Make tadka with oil, curry leaves, red chilli, mustard seeds and onion.

Wash millet rice and dal thoroughly. Put them in a pressure cooker, add water and give 3-4 whistles.

Add tadka to cooker and khichdi is ready.
