    alice Dave's Note:

    An easy to make Indian dish with an AMAZING flavor. I found this recipe on, an online Indian cookbook. I modified it only by increasing the amounts of spices used because it seemed like it would be kind of bland with the amounts suggested. So, this is an authentic spicy Khichadi.
