This recipe is from week 21 of my food blog, Travel by Stove. I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Bangladesh is my 21st stop. Khichuri can be made with meat or vegetables; this version is served as a side dish and contains cauliflower and potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak the mung beans overnight, or if you are short on time cook them with a half cup of water on medium heat in a pressure cooker for 8 minutes.
  2. Fry the cauliflower and potato cubes lightly in a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the onion, the jalapeno peppers and the spices.
  3. Add the rice, the mung beans and about a half cup of oil and stir until well incorporated.
  4. Add two cups of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover the pot.
  5. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed.
