Bajra (Pearl Millet) Khichdi

So finally we have reached the weekend…..this calls for a perfect brunch to skip off the usual routine of breakfast, lunch etc…
How about starting a day with Pearl Millets?

Bajra …as its famously known is full of nutrition, excellent source of fiber and proteins .It is known to increase insulin sensitivity and lower the level of triglycerides.
Such a good ingredient is definitely invited to my kitchen and here comes from my Grand Veg Kitchen.......

Bajra (Pearl Millet) Khichdi


 Ingredients: 
3/4th Cup – Bajra (Pearl Millet) 
1/4th Cup-Moong dal (Green gram split) 
1 Carrot cut into small cubes 
1 Potato cut into small cubes 
7-8 French Beans cut into small pieces 
10-12 Cauliflower florets 
1/4th Cup Green peas (Frozen or fresh/if used dry ones soak them with bajra) 
1 Big Onion finely chopped 
2 Big Tomatoes finely chopped 
2 Green chilies finely chopped 
1 tsp-Red chili powder 
1/4th tsp-Garam masala 
1/4th tsp-Mustard seeds 
1/8th tsp-termeric 
1Tbsp-Oil 
A pinch of asfoetida (hing) 
Salt to taste

Method: 
Soak Bajra (Pearl Millet) and Moong dal (Green gram split) separately in enough water overnight or for 8 hours. (In case using dry peas soak and cook them along with bajra).
After the soaking is done drain the water using a strainer and in a pressure cooker add both Bajra (Pearl Millet) and Moong dal (Green gram split) and add 3 cups of water and pressure cook for three whistles  on high flame and the turn the flame on low and cook for another 10 mins. 
You will have a perfect pearl like bloomed millets from your cooker.
Add the cut carrots, potatoes, French beans, cauliflower florets, to a bowl with 1/4th cup boiling water and just par boil them for two minutes.
Next heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai/pan and a pinch of asfoetida (hing) followed by mustard seeds.  
Once they splutter add finely chopped green chilies and onions .Mix them well and cook till onions turn pink in color. 
Now add chopped tomatoes, fresh/frozen peas, turmeric, and salt and mix well and cook for two minutes on low flame with closed lid. 
Next add the parboiled vegetables along with its cooked water, red chili powder, garam masala and give a good stir and cook for another two minutes with closed lid. 
Add the cooked Bajra (Pearl Millet) and Moong dal (Green gram split) to the above mixture and mix well and cook till its boiling.
Now check on the consistency…if you require a watery consistancy for the khichdi then turn of the flame once the khichdi is boiling, if require a thick consistency then cook on low flame for another 2-3 mins. 
Always remember that this khichdi gets pretty thick once it starts cooling down. 
At this stage check on the taste …add more of salt and red chili powder if required. 
Enjoy hot Bajra (Pearl Millet) Khichdi with some roasted papads…
