Khichdi / Khichuri in Bengali or Khichadi in Marathi. This is usually when you are sick or even had as a detox diet/Satvik Aahar. My maternal grandma says that the measure of dal and rice should be equal in case of a detox diet. This is simple effortless khichdi. There are other variations to khichadi like masala khichdi,vegetable khichdi, Gujarati khichdi with Toor dal or even mix dal khichdi.
