Khichuri by #sikandalouscuisine

A Bengali friend very generously sent me Govindo Bhog Chaal / Rice and a recipe to make this awesome Khichuri . The only change I made was to not add sugar , but slipped in some whole green chilies towards the end .
250 Grams Rice - Wash well.
250 Grams Roasted Mun Dal - Roast well , when slightly colored and fragrant take off heat , wash .
Soak rice and dal together for about 30 minutes minimum while you get cooking .
1 Onion Sliced - Fry in mustard oil till brown to garnish ( Optional ).
250 Grams Cauliflower - Medium Size Florets fry in mustard oil till lightly colored.
200 Grams Potatoes - Cut one into four pieces after peeling and then Medium Size Florets fry in mustard oil till lightly colored.
100 Grams Peas.
1.5 Teaspoons Jeera Seeds.
2 Tej Putta.
5-7 Green Cardamon.
2" Cinnamon Sticks Broken.
1 Large Tomato Grated.
1 Tablespoon Minced Ginger.
1 Teaspoon Sugar .( I avoided )
Red Chili Powder
5-6 Whole Green Chilies ( make a slit - not in recipe )
1 Heaped Teaspoon Jeera Powder.
1 Teaspoon Garam Masala.
Ghee to drizzle at the end.
Heat mustard oil , crackle jeera , add tej putta , cardamon , cinnamon and cook till aromatic - 30 seconds , then add tomato and ginger and cook till oil separates.Now strain dal and rice and slowly saute for 5-7 minutes. Add haldi , salt and red chilli powder to taste.

Next tip in about 6 cups ( 1.25 liters ) boiling water and cook khichuri covered. When 75% done , add some green chilies , fried potatoes , peas and jeera powder. Cook another 4-5 minutes then tip in fried cauliflower , after two minutes or so stir in garam masala , drizzle lots of ghee and take off heat .Garnish with fried onions.This was like super delicious .
