A khichuri or khichdi is a classic rice and lentil mélange, prepared differently in different parts of India. This particular red lentil variation is from the Bengal. It is distinct in its use of fried onions to imbue rich flavor into the dish and is replete with cauliflower and potatoes and green peas. It gets done with in less than twenty minutes of cooking time with a beautiful drizzle of cumin scented clarified butter or ghee. To keep this dish vegan, you can use coconut oil instead of the ghee.Inspired by: https://recipes.instantpot.com/recipe/khichuri-bengali-red-lentil-risotto/
