Instructions
  1. In the pressure cooker, heat the ghee and add the mustard and cumin seeds. Wait till they crackle and splutter.
  2. Now add the ginger, chillies and curry leaves.
  3. Once they start to become golden in colour, add the onions and saute till the onions become pink.
  4. Put in the haldi/turmeric powder and then drain the dals and add to the mixture. Saute well on low heat.
  5. Now drain the rice and add to the mix and continue to saute.
  6. Once it all comes together, put in the water and salt. Mix well.
  7. Increase the heat to high and cover the pressure cooker, put on the whistle and cook for two whistles.
  8. Wait till the pressure from the cooker is completely released. Open the cooker and let the khichdi sit for 5 minutes before serving. It goes beautifully with achaar (or Indian pickles).
