Barley Curd Khichadi

I watched a TV program in which Sabudana Khichadi was made differently.I followed the same steps with Barley and it came out well.But the only thing is I used sour curd instaed of tamarind water (as shown in the TV)


Ingredients
Part 1 - Dry roast and soaking
  • Barley - 3/4 cup
  • Sour Curd - 1/2  cup
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric -  little
  • Hing - little
Part 2 -Powder
  • Green Chilly - 3 or 4 numbers
  • Roasted Gram - 1/4 cup
Part 3 -  Seasonings
  • Oil - 1 tablespoons
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Peanuts - handful or as desired
Part 4 - Garnish
  • Grated coconut - 2 tablespoons
  • Coriander leaves - little
Preparation
  • Dry roast barley for about 5  minutes.Cool and grind it to a fine powder.Pour sour curd over it.Add slat, turmeric and hing.Mix well and leave it for 1 hour

Method
  • Heat oil in a kadai and splutter mustard seeds and roast peanuts in it
  • Add powdered green chilly and roasted gram.Saute till the raw smell goes
  • Now pour in the soaked barley and cook it in a low flame.Close it with lid to prevent splattering
  • Open the lid every 5 minutes and swirl the contents
  • Once cooked( ie it comes without sticking to the vessel ) garnish it with coconut and coriander leaves
  • Mix it well and serve hot
