Khichdi is a traditional Indian dish that's considered a comfort food. Made with a combination of rice and lentils, it's a complete meal, often cooked with turmeric and salt, making it a yellow-tinged, savory dish. You can add different vegetables like peas, potatoes, cauliflower, and more. It's often given to people who are recovering from illness because it’s easy to digest and nutritious.
