Godi nucchhu/Broken Wheat Kichadi



I cannot believe it has been 1 year of non-blogging. It took a lot of effort to recover this account:)

It is Ganesha habba season again. I hope at least this time I can maintain this blog properly.

The first time I tasted anything made of godhi nucchu was when my aunt made this awesome kichadi during my recent visit to India. I didn’t ask her for the recipe then, because I was sure that I will not remember it. But I will definitely make it a point to ask her next time we meet and put it up here.

When I came across this recipe I immediately book marked it for my future use.

I pretty much followed the recipe as it is, except for adding some mint leaves.

This is one super healthy, super filling, wholesome dish. Even my toddler relished it.

2 cups of broken wheat
1 cup of green whole moong dal (original recipe calls for 2 cups)
