Last updated on: August 12, 2016 12:06 IST

Six khichdi recipes to delight your taste buds this rainy season, from Mini Ribeiro.

The monsoon is when we all crave piping hot food.

And there can be no better comfort food than khichdi.

A one pot meal, it is nutritious with an abundance of carbohydrates, proteins and all that the body needs.

These need not be the basic dal and rice combination. One can jazz it up with millets, vegetables, even meat and sea food.

My six favourite easy-to-make khichdi recipes from chefs across the country.
