Dal Kichdi

Hi fellow bloggers,

its been indeed quite a few months since i logged in to my blog, though tried to catch up other bloggers, i missed many of your posts. Life has been hectic for past few months with work, home and kid.So wanted to take a break from blogging, but my mind always thought about the numerous contests and awards which would be shared every now and then, missed all those participation in the contests, reading nice reviews and congratulating each others, never mind priorities keep changing :))  let me cheer up my self and start my blogging once again with a very simple recipe which i would often end up doing when my vegetable tray is completely out of stock

Preparation Time : 5 Minutes

Rice : 1 cup
Toor Dal : 1/4 cup
Moong dal - 1/4 cup
