Khichdi is a healthy and delicious dish made with rice and lentils. Moong dal is commonly used while making khichdi as it adds a nice flavour and taste to it. In today’s post I am sharing the recipe of masala Khichdi with vegetables which you can prepare for breakfast or lunch. This is a one pot meal and goes well with poriyals or any side dish of  your choice.


2 1/2 cups rice
1 cup moong dal
4 tbsp oil
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 large onion finely chopped
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder (optional)
2 tsp salt (or to taste)
¼ tsp turmeric powder
4 normal sized tomatoes deseeded and chopped into small pieces
1 carrot cut into small cubes
2 potatoes cut into small cubes
10 french beans cut into thin slices
7 cups water
3 tbsp Chopped coriander and mint leaves


  • Wash and soak the basmati rice and moong dal in water for about half an hour.
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add cumin seeds and allow it to sputter.
  • Add onions and saute till the onions turn soft.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and mix well. Cook for a few seconds till the raw smell goes.
  • Add salt, red chilli powder, garam masala powder and turmeric powder and mix well.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and mix well. Cook for a couple of minutes till the tomatoes turn soft.
  • Now add the chopped vegetables and coriander and mint leaves and mix well.
  • Drain away the water from the rice and moong dal and add them to the cooker.
  • Stir the rice and dal well with the masalas.
  • Add water and close the lid.
