Vegetable Khichdi | Instant Pot Vegetable Khichdi

Spread the love

In North India, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, Khichdi cooked with vegetables is served in Pandals the day of Makar Sankranti (which is also known as Harvest Festival). This one-pot meal khichdi makes a perfect bowl of healthy and comfort food. I personally find Vegetable Khichdi very easy and comforting meal for the lazy winter afternoons. 😀 This could be a very easy to digest and light meal for your weeknight dinners when you are too exhausted and have very little time and energy to prepare dinner.
