Baby Prawn And Vegetable Masala Khichdi.. I cook this masala khichdi when ever I feel low and to enlighten my mood this is food I would prefer. This particular dish has no recipe from any where, actually one day I wanted to make pulao but I end up adding all the ingredients what ever I got into my hands and that's how I innovated this masala khichdi and this is a dish which you put everything together in a pressure cooker and give 2 whistle and you have a delicious masala khichdi ready to eat... I have also tried many other ingredients but I always thought the first recipe was the best, so since then I'm stick to this recipe only and believe me it taste real good.
