Khichadi is a go-to recipe that is not only healthy and easy to digest, it’s delicious and easy to make. Some people prepare Khichadi on the stove top or with a pressure cooker, but the rice cooker is the most convenient since it can cook unattended. I like to start this dish in the morning and by the time I’m ready to leave the house, my lunch is cooked and ready to go!
