      Title: Khichadi from maja
 Categories: Indian, Grains, Side dish, Vegetables
      Yield: 8 Servings
      1 c  Basmati rice
    3/4 c  Moong dal
      8 c  ;Water
    1/3 c  Raw cashews
    1/2 c  Raw almonds
    1/4 c  Coconut
    3/4 c  Peas
    3/4 c  Carrots
      3    Inch piece of cinnamon
      8    Whole cloves
      1    Whole red chile
      2 ts Sugar (Optional)
    1/4 ts Asafetida, yellow
    1/3 c  Currants - Raisins
      1 ts Cumin
      1 ts Black mustard seeds
           Parsley or cilantro
           Garam masala
  First rinse the following ingredients separately: rice, dal, almonds,
  cashews, coconut and currants.
  In a heavy pan, heat the water to boiling.
  While waiting for the water to boil, toast the almonds and cashews in
  a dab of ghee. Just before nuts are toasted, add the coconut and
  toast all until brown. Remove nut mixture from pan; set aside.
  Next toast the cumin and black mustard seeds in a dab of ghee. Cover
  pot while toasting, due to mustard seeds popping while cooking. Cook
  spices for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from pan; set aside.
  When water boils, add the dal and cook for about 2 minutes. The dal
  will foam up in the cooking process, so remove the foam after two
  minutes. Then add the rice and all of the spices. Boil, covered, for
  about 1 more minute.
  Turn the fire off under the rice mixture and let sit.
  Toast the carrots and peas in a dab of ghee while the rice is
  sitting. The rice will be ready to have the remaining ingredients
  added after the veggies are cooked. (I like to leave the carrots
  somewhat al dente.)
  Open the pot and sprinkle garam masala over the rice and then add the
  cleaned raisins, veggies, and half of the nut mixture, in that order.
  Sprinkle again with garam masala. Cover and let sit for a short time.
  Transfer the rice to a large bowl and stir the dish until all
  ingredients are completely blended. Sprinkle some more garam masala
  for looks and add the remaining nuts for a garnish.
