I always add veggies like carrots, beans, peppers while making khichdi or upma. So here in this recipe also I have added loads of veggies to make it delicious and wholesome.
You can add carrots, beans, peas, corn etc in this khichdi recipe. On the other hand you can make this recipe totally without veggies or just onions and tomatoes.
Serve oats khichdi piping hot with curd, pickle or papad. You can serve this to babies over 9 months, toddlers and kids. While making for babies make it slightly mushy by adding more water.
