VEGETABLE KHICDI – West Indian High Protein Vegan Dish

Khicdi is a mix of rice and legumes. I add as many veggies I can to make it a wholesome dish. The spices and herbs you see in the dish have great health benefits. The dish by itself is Vegan. Tastes best with Yogurt on the side or mixed into it but I am a Vegan so I do not use Yogurt. I eat it with Soup, a curry, or just by itself.

This is a Gujurati Dish. I am a Gujurati, belonging to a West Indian state called Gujurat. Rice and Daal (Legumes, lentils, pulses) are our staple food and part of almost every or every other meal.

This High Protein Dish is ready to eat. Tastes best with Yogurt or Indian Kadhi.

Alternatively, we can shallow fry the khicdi for an added taste. This procedure lifts the taste to a totally new level.

Oil – 1 Tbsp

Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp.

while the seeds burst, take the rice and add asafoetida (hing) 2 pinches and turmeric powder 1/2 tsp.

Asafoetida helps digestion and prevents gas or bloating from the legume

Turmeric is an antibiotic and has several health benefits.
