Wholesome Khichdi - Lauki carrot kichadi - Healthy one pot meal - Diet Plan - No onion, garlic, tomato recipes

I love one pot meals for my lazy Sunday afternoon lunch. I have traveled to north India a few times. My first North India visit was to Mumbai during Mumbai flood in 2005 / 2006.. (cannot remember exact timing) I got stuck in Mumbai as SQ stop flying into Mumbai. I looked for alternative options and ended up flying thro' Calcutta. I had about a day lay over in Calcutta. So When I checked into hotel knowing very little Hindi I decided to have room service for the meal. That's when I first tasted Kichadi. I loved it because of its taste and simplicity of the meal. After that I brought tarladalal cook book and I saw the recipe for kichadi. This recipe is from tarladalal...I have modified the measurements to our family preferences. I made this in rice cooker. You can do it in Pressure cooker also. If you are cooking in pressure cooker you can cook till 4-5 whistles (at medium flame).
