Moong dal khichdi is a healthy, nutritious and comfort food that is often served for lunch with Toor dal sambar, Chicken Khurma/ Korma or barbooth. At home we usually serve Moong dal Khichdi with Ande ka Barbooth (Eggs in tomato gravy) and mint chutney. The combination tastes delicious and is definitely a must try lunch recipe at your home. Do try it out and let me know.
