Methi-Moong Daal Khichadi

So again after long time here I come with easy and quick one dish meal for Friday dinner which will surely give you a great relief after long hectic week long work.
Methi-Moong Daal khichadi with added goodness of Brown Rice will serve as comfort food on a cold-rainy evening, specially the kind of weather we are witnessing in Banaglore over last week.
Be rain or not, try out this simple recipe and leave a comment down as how you like it.
