KUAREE / PATREE KHICHNEE ( Soft Khichdi Sindhi Recipe)

Kuaree / Patri in Sindhi means soft ( porridge like consistency ) This khichdi is very simple one made with rice and split green moong dal. It is actually a traditional breakfast dish. It is usually served with fried potatoes, papads, pickle, yogurt and kachris. But if you want to eat light sometimes to cool your stomach, just have it with a bowl of curd. Since this is very light on the stomach it is perfect when one is a bit unwell. This is also given to the toddlers as a first solid food.

Rice --- 3/4 th cup
Split green moong dal ... 1/4 cup
Salt ... to taste
Ghee or oil ... 2 tbsps
Mustard seeds - 2 tsps (for tempering)
