Makar Sankranti Khichri #sikandalouscuisine

I am very happy seeing all these wonderful posts celebrating Makar Sankranti We are the keepers of our culture and traditions and its upto us to pass them down to the future generation , just as they were passed down to us .
This Khichri is traditionally made for Makar Sankranti at home.This is the Nepali version we make , which I suspect is akin to our Indian one.

1 Cup Rice.
1 Cup Urad Chilka Dal.
1/2 " Ginger - pound it.
1 Teaspoon Freshly Grated Haldi.
Tempering :
4 Tablespoons Ghee.
1 Teaspoon Jeera.
Dot of Hing.

Soak for an hour dal and rice in four cups of water , add haldi and salt to taste.
Bring to a boil , when half done add ginger .Cook covered till done.
Heat ghee , splutter jeera , add dried red chilies and hing and transfer into the khichri , stilr and allow it to rest 10 minutes covered.
It's rustic and delicious.
