Here's a Khichdi recipe, again from the Heritage-rich Gujarat, which I tasted there in an upscale restaurant.
You can check my other Khichdi varieties:
1. Gujarati Khichdi
2. Sprouted green gram khichdi
3. Palak khichdi
4. Swaminarayan khichdi
5. Pancha prayag Khichdi
The sprouted green gram khichdi is like pulav in texture and this Khichdi is like Ven pongal in  texture.
This can be called an Inseparable Combo also, along with Palak kadhi
Please check my other Inseparable Combos
