Moog Dal Khichadi With vegetablesa and Kadhi

Mood Dal Khichadi with veggie's and hot Kadhi are my passport to heaven. IT gives me unexplainable comfort to post this recipe for my young bachelor friends as this recipe can be twisted and turned as per what you have on hand. The main ING being Mood Dal and Rice.. To add to the health content i sue Green Split Moog Dal, as the husk form the lentils gives it the fiber, we lack so much in vegetarian food.
