Assamese Bora Soul Khichadi

Assamese Bora Saul Khichadi is a healthy , nutritious and delicious porridge consistency khichadi from Assam . The Khichadi is loaded with veggies .

Bora saul is a variety of glutinous rice found in Assam. It has an important role in  Assamese traditional occasions like Bihu , which is completely different from mainland India and on the other hand completely similar to those found in Southeast Asia.This rice is glutinous and is generally used in pithas , or as simply boiled rice .

I got a pack of the Bora Saul rice from my daughter’s friend who has launched some Organic products and you can read all about them here . These products are sold under the brand name of Taru. These products have very good quality and there is huge variety .

This Assamese Khichadi is made with Bora Saul rice and yellow lentils . Vegetables are a must in all my Khichadi ‘s as hubby likes more vegetables than rice and dal . Khichadis are one pot comfort meals , and the Bhoger Khichadi is served to the Gods . It’s specially made for Durga pooja . I adapted the recipe from here , where the blogger has used parboiled rice , but I used the Bora Saul rice and the Khichadi tasted amazing . I served the Khichadi with Methi Chaman .
