Bajra Khichadi is a Khichadi made with pearl millet . This khichadi is normally made in winters and is a delicious and healthy winter meal from the states of Hayana and Gujrat.
Pinch turmeric powder
Salt to taste
Soak the bajra for 6-8 hours .
Drain the water and let it rest in the sieve for 10 minutes so that any extra moisture is drained .
Put the drained bajra in a chopper and pulse it for a few seconds .
We want to crush the bajra lightly .
Heat a nonstick pan .
Add cumin seeds, let crackle.
Add the coarse bajra and sauté for a few minutes.
Now transfer this bajra to a pressure cooker , add salt, turmeric powder and 3 cups water.
Pressure cook for one whistle and then simmer the gas and let cook for 15 minutes .
Let the pressure drop and then open the cooker .
Check if done , else add some more water and let it simmer and cook for another 10-15 minutes .
Temper with fresh green garlic sautéed in pure ghee.
I served the khichadi with fresh green peas and spinach .
