A healthy Vegan recipe that unlike most of healthy recipes, is tasty, easy and quick to make. —Mauli Shah

What You'll Need
  • 250 grams Farro
  • 3 tablespoons Corn
  • 3 tablespoons peas
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon cashews
  • 1 tablespoon Peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon Preferred spices
  • 1 tablespoon Preferred oil
  • 1 potato
  • Optional veggies
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 0.5 tablespoons Red chilly powder
  • 1 liter Water/ Vegetable stock
  • 3 sprigs Cilantro (optional)
  1. Soak Farro for 10 minutes
  2. Dice the potato and any veggies you choose. You could use frozen veggies too. Just don't thaw them, use them directly from the freezer.
  3. In a pot, take 1 tablespoon oil and let it heat, add any spices you chose, I added a chard of cinnamon, cloves and dried red chilies.
  4. Add the diced potatoes and let them cook for a couple of minutes
  5. Add the corn, peas, cashews, peanuts and any other veggies you chose.
  6. Once the veggies are par cooked, add salt, turmeric and red chilly powder.
  7. Add 1 liter water or Vegetable stock, add soaked and drained Farro. Cover and let it cook.
  8. When the Farro has puffed up and is tender, the Khichdi is ready. If you like lemon, spritz some lemon juice.
  9. Garnish with Cilantro (Optional but AMAZING!)
