Mixed Millets Kichidi

I thought its high time to clean up and organize my blog before its too late. So I started to re-organize and beautify the page and the posts. Millets Kichidi was one of my initial posts which I want to change the look. It is very quick and easy to prepare if the millets mix is made ready in advance. Millets kichadi is a mix of millets(Quiona,Corn Grits,Broken Wheat,Couscous ,Buckwheat ,Flaxseeds) pressure cooked with a load of vegetables and garnished with spices and condiments from our kitchen.

  • Do not change the water measurements. It looks as though the water is less but this is perfect to get a grainy texture.
  • Chilies can be adjusted as per your taste.
