Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi | Whole Wheat Khichdi

Sharing is caring!


Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi, a khichdi made with Whole Wheat. I was surprised when I was searching for khichdi recipes on net. Yes even though my food is influenced based on North Indian cuisine I was not aware of this. Logically speaking wheat is more grown and common in North India and hence a khichdi without rice would be there.

I was keen on making this Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi as making with whole wheat fascinated me. The only thing that was holding me off is buying whole wheat. As I was not sure what I will do if I do not like it. I do not have a mill here or the way I use to store wheat to make fresh flour. Finally I bought a small packet this weekend and made it just yesterday.

I was delighted that I did. One of the yummiest and easy khichdi recipe, with a bit of planning as the wheat needs to be soaked for a good few hours. Since the wheat is crushed lightly, I thought it would taste similar to Daliya and Split Green Moong Dal Khichdi. No but the taste and texture of this khichdi is quite different. There was a crunch in every bite, and that’s what I liked the most.

Me and my son thoroughly enjoyed this Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi. I enjoyed it the typical way with some spicy Green coriander Chutney , dahi and papad. Ah yum, I am drolling again. One of the healthiest and easy to make one pot meal. I made a very small portion of this, but this can be easily doubled or tripled as per your requirement. I have adapted this recipe from Tarla Dalal’s website.


Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Whole Wheat
  • 1/8 Cup Yellow split Moong Dal
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee/Clarified Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Jeera (Cumin Seeds)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-2 Green chilies slit
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 Cups water (we need 3 times the water)

Instructions

  • Wash and soak the whole wheat for 8-9 hours or overnight.
  • Wash and soak the yellow moong dal for 1 hour.
  • When ready to make, wash and drain the water from whole wheat.
  • Lightly grind the whole wheat in a mixer, without adding any water.
  • In a pressure cooker, add ghee.
  • Once hot add Jeera.
  • Once the Jeera splutters, add turmeric, ground whole wheat and dal.
  • Mix everything for 20-30 seconds.
  • Add 2 cups of water and salt as per taste.
  • Pressure cook it for 5 whistles. (It will take more than the normal khichdi)
  • Switch off and let the pressure settle down.
  • Serve it hot with some Green coriander Chutney , papad and dahi.
