some easy tips, recommendations and serving suggestions for this spicy masala khichdi recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have used sona masuri rice or perhaps any daily consumable rice can be used. but i would not recommend using basmati or any long grain rice which cannot be mashed easily. secondly, all the dry spices added to this moong dal masala khichdi contains a lot of heat and hence check your red chilli powder/green chillies while adding it. lastly, if you are serving the khichdi once it is cooled, make sure to add water to have a watery consistency. basically, as time passes, khichdi attains a thick consistency due to the moong dal and the spice taste may get concentrated.
