Kids comfort food

Staple comfort food for LHB in 15 minutes.


Rice+toor dal+carrots+potato+spinach
Sambar powder+turmeric powder+jira powder+asafoetida+salt

Add all of this in cooker with 1:2 water ratio and cook for 15 mins. Once cooked, add ghee and mash it.

LHB polishes this off with appalam or home made vathal (chips as he calls them)

Adi also likes it. The leftover, I use it as stuffing for Idli sandwich the next day.

  1. This khichdi is a staple here too. I attended a short kids nutrition course maybe 1.5 yrs back and the Desi -American nutritionist totally understood this one pot nutrition heavy meal and just had one wonderful suggestion for me which I will share here. Try to change the Dal, grain – millet, brown rice, quinoa, amaranth are some options, veggies and oil used every few times you make this. That way the kid gets a wide range of nutrition . Maybe not applicable there if you make this only once a week. In our house it’s Bandar’s dinner 5 out of 7 days a week , so I try to change up the stuff she mentioned.
