Millets kichadi is a healthy and delicious South Indian dish made with millets, vegetables, and spices. Here’s a simple recipe to make millets kichadi:
Wash the mixed millets and soak them in water for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, grated ginger, chopped onion, and green chilli. Saute until the onions turn translucent.
Add the chopped mixed vegetables and saute for a few minutes.
Drain the water from the soaked millets and add them to the pressure cooker. Add 2 cups of water, turmeric powder, asafoetida, and salt to taste. Mix well.
Close the pressure cooker and cook on high flame for 2 whistles. Then reduce the flame to low and cook for another 5 minutes.
Turn off the flame and let the pressure release naturally.
Open the pressure cooker and give the kichadi a stir. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve hot with raita or pickle.
Note: You can also add grated coconut, roasted peanuts, or cashew nuts for extra flavor and crunch.
