Bulgur Khichdi

I am always looking for recipes with whole grains. This is a simple, quick and easy breakfast recipe made with bulgur/dahlia. I usually make a simple upma with bulgur, but this time I decided to make a khichdi using some lentils. Next time I am planning to try the recipe by adding some vegetables. This gets done in less than 15 minutes and tastes great on its own or along with some chutney.
Ingredients (Makes 2 servings)
Bulgur/Dahlia/Broken wheat - 1 cup
Split yellow gram (Yellow moong dal) - 1/2 cup (soaked in water for atleast 5-10 minutes)
Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard - 1/2 teaspoon
Urad dal - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - few
Asafoetida - 1 pinch
Green chilly - 1 slit lengthwise
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/4 teaspoon
Onion - 1/4 cup chopped
Green peas - 1/4 cup

Directions
In a saucepan, heat the oil and do the tempering with mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves and asafoeida. Add the ginger-garlic paste ad green chillies and fry for a minute. Add the chopped onions and saute till translucent.

Add the soaked yellow moong dal and the green peas and saute for a minute. Add 2 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Add the bulgur and cover and cook for 2 minutes on a medium flame.

Remove from heat, mix well and serve warm. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve with chutney..

  24. Hey Divya,
    Thanks for your lovely comments on my posts.
    Dalia Kichadi is anyday better than regular rice kichadi. I make it for my baby atleast 2-3 times every week. I was unable to participate in the Global Kadhai event but I'm eagerly waiting for the roundup!

    Take care

  25. Yum, that bulgur khichdi looks delicious. I've been cooking with cracked wheat a lot lately and I make an upma with it that's somewhat similar.
