Tips :-

  • Can use frozen green peas instead of fresh peas .
  • Number of green chillies may vary as per individuals taste.
  • You may replace daliya with the millets.
  • As there  is no dal in this recipe  , it is better to soak the daliya for longer time  so that you get nice structure or binding to the khichdi.
  • 1 cup equals 100 ml.
  • For one cup of daliya use 3 cups  to 4 cups of water to get mushy structure in daliya.
  • Use more water if you are cooking khichdi directly on stove top.
