  1. Chana dal khichri -It is made like pulao using gram dal and rice with ghee.It is usually made on occasions like Bhaiyadooj and Rakshabandhan.Our grandmothers said it is prepared so that brothers sisters always stay together and mingle with each other like rice and dal in khichri.

  2. The one written about Bengal is wrong. Amish in our language means Non-vegetarian foods, and we consider eggs, fish, meat, onion, garlic to be Non-vegetarian. The Bhoger Khichudi is older and traditional one, Bhog means, the offering made to God, so it should not contain anything Amish (Non-vegetarian). Bhoger Khichudi is a Niramish (vegetarian) dish cooked according to the Sata pranali (satvik food making processes), one of the three lifestyle maintaining ways of the Hindus. The other two are Rawjo (Rajsik or the Royal) and the Tamo (Tamosik or the Bewildered).
