It is said to be very good for lactating mother’s. She use to make the sweet and savory version. The sweet version is made like a porridge with milk and the savory is either on it’s own or mixed with Dal and a few Vegetables.

Still I do not like the sweet version, but love the savory one’s. I make it in 2 different types as mentioned earlier, with and without Dal. This Daliya and Split Green Moong Dal Khichdi is also an easy, nutritious, protein rich and a filling one pot meal.
