Tomato Tadka Khichdi Recipe

We Indian love tangy spicy and delicious food. Food that satisfies not only the hunger but soul as well. But how do we react to Khichdi? Some of you may roll over your eyes or make faces. What if I told you that even Khichdi can be tangy, flavorful and be a treat to your palate?

Apart from many health benefits, Khichdi can be made using many lentils, tempering etc. Today’s recipe can be made with even leftover Khichdi and I would love to call it Tomatina Tadka Khichdi. Make with the tempering of tomatoes and later the addition of curd makes any Khichdi a mouthwatering dish.

Next time someone cringes on hearing Khichdi make them this and they will be a fan for rest of their life

Let’s get started.
