Oats Dal Khichdi

Oats Dal Khichdi | Easy Oats Khichdi

Oats Dal Khichdi is a healthy and delicious one pot meal which can be prepared easily. This khichdi is made with oats, yellow moong dal and mixed veggies. For the first time, I made this oats khichdi and it turned out very well. I think there is no need for any side dish for this khichdi. It was a little bit spicy but we enjoyed it very much.
