Barley Khichadi


1/2 cup Barley
2 table spoon moong dal
1 cup chopped mixed vegetables - carrots, potato, beans and peas(cut the potato bigger, slice the carrots into1/4 inch thickness and chop the beans 1 cm long)
1/4 of an onion chopped
1 tsp jeera
1 green chilli chopped or slit
ginger small piece chopped
1/8th tsp ground pepper
salt to taste
1 tbsp oil or ghee
turmeric small pinch
water

Soak the barley for 3 hours.  Take a pan with oil.  Season jeera, ginger, green chilli and add the onion to saute for a couple of minutes.  Add the pepper powder, stir and add the vegetables.  Toss them for a few  minutes and add the turmeric and salt.  Transfer this to the barley and dal mixture.  Keep water in the ratio of 1:4 and cook in the pressure cooker for ten minutes.  When you remove it will be slightly watery, but as it cools down it will thicken. 

I am sending this to  Wholesome Wholegrain Cooking - Barley for Breakfast event.
