Step 3

Keep on low flame for 5 mins or till the mixture comes to a boil. Keep simmering.

Step 4

For the tempering, heat the ghee in a pan for 2 mins.

Step 5

Add the mustard seeds and the cumin seeds. Let them crackle.

Step 6

Add the asafoetida, the red chilli bits, turmeric powder and fry on low heat for a few seconds.

Step 7

Add the tempering to the gram flour gravy and stir occasionally whilst simmering on very low heat for 4 mins.

Step 8

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves before serving.

Step 9

For khichdi:-
1)Wash and soak the split yellow gram and rice together for 15 mins.

Step 10

:- Khichdi is traditionally cooked in a pressure cooker which is much faster. If you happen to have one, in the last step after adding all the ingredients, cover and bring to maximum pressure on high heat. Pressure cook on high heat for 4 whistles.
