Khichdi Sevai – Jiffy Cooking

Khichdi Sevai – Jiffy Cooking

Other Names Sevai Upma. Sevai. Nool Appam Upma.

I am still cooking in my kitchen, believe me. Although…not exactly, like the way I used to! Cooking – now a days, happens pretty fast in few fabulous minutes. Over the years…I have mastered the art of throwing few ingredients together and call it a dish. :) Most likely, out of sheer luck, it turns out great…and quite edible. So, this is what I made on the other day. If you’re in a hurry, fix this and I promise…you won’t regret. :)
