Swaminarayan Khichdi | Vegetable Medley Kedgeree

Swaminarayan food is cooked without onion, garlic and hing ( asafoetida ) . But I've made this khichdi with few changes of my own to suit our taste buds.

You will need :-
1 cup rice
1/2 cup toor daal
1 1/2 cup mix vegetables cut - capsicum, aubergine, bottle gourd, peas, cauliflower, carrots etc. ( choice is yours )
1 small potato - peeled and cubed
1 tomato chopped
1 small chopped onion ( optional )
4-5 cloves garlic chopped
1/4 cup raw peanuts
1-2 tbsp crushed ginger and green chillies
Salt to taste
2-3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp cumin and coriander powder
You will need : - Tadka
1 tbsp whole spices - cinnamon, cloves, bay leaves, black pepper powder
1-2 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
pinch of hing
1-2 dry red chillies
Method :-
Wash rice and tuver daal and soak for 10-15 minutes.
In a large pressure cooker heat  oil, add tadka ingredients , when crackle add onion and saute till light pink. Now add garlic and saute till very light brown. Turn the heat low.
Now add crushed chillies, ginger and all the masala powder and give it a stir.
Add potatoes, tomatoes and other vegetables.
Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
Now add washed daal and rice and peanuts without water.
Fry this mixture for few minutes then add 4 cups of warm water.
Stir once more, add salt and close the pressure cooker lid.
After 3 whistle turn of the heat.
Let the pressure cooker cool down naturally.
The khichdi should be slightly runny and sticky. If not, then add little water and cook 1-2 minutes.

Serve Hot with fresh yogurt or chaas, pickle and papad.
