Pumpkin Khichdi

Pumpkin is one of my favorite vegetables. Today I prepared one of my Maa’s special Pumpkin Khichdi. She used to prepare this Khichdi every Friday during her Santoshimaa Puja . And I really don’t prefer to take non-veg on that day so that I used to have this khichdi with Maa. My husband last night went for grocery shopping and he brought some fresh pumpkin so I just made this for our last night dinner.
And my little one also likes the khichdi so much. It’s an easy and tasty recipe any day you can make this. Any curry, Fried potato you can have with this khichdi, but I prefer to have fried Pumpkin with this.


Preparation time: 10 mints.
Cooking time: 30 mints.
Serve for 2 people.


1.Gobindobhog Rice: One small cup.
2.Moong Dal: One small cup.

3.One small potato cut into cube size.
4.Pumpkin: 6 to 8 piece (cut same like the potato).

5.Green chilies: 3 to 4 cut into straight wise.
6.A small chopped tomato.

Now add the crushed ginger and cumin powder with some salt and sugar and mix well.
Now add the washed rice and dal and fry for 3 to 4 mints with all the ingredients.

Now add 3 small cup of water and cook till it done. Sprinkle some ghee from the top.

Enjoy hot with some Fried Potato or Fried Pumpkin.
