必威体育官网登陆Bengali masoor dal (red lentils) khichdi / khichuri – for rainy days

Can a simple bowl of rice and lentils bring comfort to the distressed soul?Yes,有些食物是这样的,primitive in form and yet so nourishing and comforting.希奇迪的金锅,里面的米和扁豆一起煮,直到它们失去一些个人主义的特征,变成一个这样的人,the true comfort food ever known to man.Comfort foods are different for different people yet they serve the same purpose in life,那就是给身体带来舒适,mind and soul.

Khichdi means different things to different people in India,for some it is the mourning food,for some it is prescribed soft food eaten only during illness and for some it is the most relishing and soulfood.And for us it is God's own comfort food.So in 必威体育官网登陆Bengali ritual and pujas,献给上帝的祭品是,this quintessential golden pot of khichdi,lovingly called as""bhoger khichuri"".Pure and divine.But our love for khichuri does not ends there.While bhoger khichuri is best served during Lakshmi / Saraswati puja or Durga puja,we have devised other recipes,to prove our loyalty towards this divine food so that we can enjoy it any other time.

Like this masoor dal khichdi which is perfect for Monsoon days.Yes,它必须在季风季节,当河流满溢的时候,when the dark clouds permanently veiled the green Earth,when the rains flooded the streets,villages,turning them into a chaotic world but everything seems to be in perfect order with a bowl of piping hot khichdi in hand.

穆苏奥·达尔·希奇迪不同于其他的希奇迪变体。The red lentils are cooked together with par-boiled rice (which is common in 必威体育官网登陆Bengali homes),big chunks of potatoes,sliced onions and whole garam masala.在孟加必威体育官网登陆拉文化中,这种使用大量洋葱和大蒜的开尔奇迪被称为aamish"or non-veg khichdi,in compare to the bhoger khcihdi which is cooked without onions and garlic and hence known as"niramish"or satvik khichdi.

You can use any other rice variety but that gooey,oozy,taste and gelatinous texture like risotto is possible only with the par-boiled rice which lends a completely different aroma to the dish.It is then devoured with ilish maach bhaja or fried hilsa,the prized and illusionary fish from the Ganges.And Monsoon is the season when rivers in Bengal are full of ilish,hence this marriage of liquid yor runny massor dal khichuri with ilish mach bhaja,sometimes with dim bhaja or Indian omlette,assorted vegetable fritters like begun bhaja (fried eggplants),aloo bhaja (thinly sliced crispy fried potatoes),potol bhaja (fried pointed gourds) and so on.Pappad (poppadum) and chilli pickle as side to complete the khichuri platter.

    喜欢你的博客。The description of rainy chaos countered with a comforting bowl of lentils and rice is so poetic.I don't even have a bowl of khichri in my hands yet felt calm and serene at the mere thought.
    Will definitely make this asap and report how it went.
