Naga Galho Recipe – Khichdi from Nagaland

Naga Galho Recipe is a soupy concoction similar to khichdi and is made with fresh green leaves, vegetables, rice, with meat and without meat. To prepare this Galho they use fermented soya or bamboo. Here I made this khichdi without meat and fermented soya. The process of making this dish is very simple and I made it in a pressure cooker which is done under 20 minutes.

This Naga Galho is a dish from Nagaland, which is a state in the northeast of India. Their cuisine features meat, fish, fermented soya and fresh vegetables.  

My partner for this month for Nagaland cuisine in Shhh Cooking Secretly Challenge is Mayuri Patel from Mayuri’s Jikoni. Do check her blog for a beautiful collection of recipes from desserts to rice dishes and etc. She gave me fresh green leaves and tomato as my secret ingredients and I gave her tomato and garlic as her secret ingredients and she came up with a delicious Naga Tomato Chutney.

This is my last day post to Blogging Marathon under the theme Biryanis/Pulao/Khichdi. We all bloggers have successfully completed this mega marathon, cooking continuously for 26 days. I am happy to be part of this Marathon.

  1. Initially I wanted to make the galho, but then I was a bit worried about how it would taste… Especially since my folks are always very varied about different food. Hehe… The galho looks delicious and so much healthy with those spinach going in… a good comfort meal..

  2. Most of the dishes from the North Eastern states are simple flavored and some of the ingredients used sound exotic for the remaining regions. I didn’t know bamboo was used in cooking until I read it here. Your version Nagaland khichdi with simple, basic flavors sounds delicious.

  3. It sure is a task to find a recipe from this state…the khichadi looks absolutely wonderful, and so tempting. I could pick that bowl right away.
    It was a great marathon , and you have completely rocked with your shares.

  4. Khichdi with spinach surely looks a comfort and healthy option. It will be great to pair it up with some spicy chutney and raita or buttermilk
