Goodness of everything in one single pot! This Khichdi is made with Quinoa, Lentil, Oat, Rice and vegetables to make it diabetic friendly and low in carb. Your choice of vegetables can be added. I usually love to make this Khichdi on the go these days as it is so quick and easy to make in pressure cooker. I have also shared the same recipe to make in Instant pot electric cooker, click here for the recipe. Khichdi is such a comfort food that I can make and eat almost everyday. I have already shared many Khichdi recipes like Palak, Shahi, Schezwan and so on.
Below is the video instructions to make Quinoa Lentil Oat Khichdi.
- 1/4 cup Quinoa
- 1/4 cup Lentil I use Mung daal
- 1/4 cup Oat Rolled old fashioned
- 1/4 cup Basmati rice
- 1 tbsp Oil + 1 tbsp Ghee
- 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
- 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
- 1/4 tsp Turmeric
- Red Chili powder to taste
- 1 tbsp Ground Coriander Cumin
- Garam Masala to taste optional
- 2-3 cups total Vegetables of your choice I use onion, potato, carrot, cauliflower, green peas and so on
- Ginger Garlic and Green Chili paste as per taste
- 2 tbsp Peanut
- 2 cups water or as required
- Salt to taste
- 2 tbsp Coriander leaves finely chopped to garnish
Wash grains and lentils. Drain water and keep aside.
In a pressure cooker pot, heat up Oil + Ghee on a medium to high heat.
Add Mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add cumin seeds, Turmeric, Ground coriander cumin, red chili powder and stir well.
Add onion and saute for about 1 minutes. Add ginger, garlic and green chili.
Add remaining vegetables and saute for another minute or so.
Add garam masala and salt.
Now, ready to add washed lentils and grains.
Add water, stir well and cover the pressure cooker.
Hear about 2-3 whistles only. If you like soft khichdi, 3 whistles or else 1 or 2 works as well for little grainy khichdi like biryani or pulao.
Turn off the stove and allow pressure cooker to cool.
Open the cooker and serve khichdi steamy hot with Chhas or Kadhi.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
Don't forget Kachumber salad and papad! Enjoy!
