Kashmiri Black Moth Daal Khichdi

The husband and I are suckers for bringing back local ingredients from the places we travel to, to cook with later in our home kitchen. This Kashmiri Black Moth Daal Khichdi was born from the ingredients we picked up on our recent trip to the beautiful Kashmir.

Walking along the row of shops outside the beautiful Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta, Old Srinagar, I discovered the Kashmiri black moth daal. It is a special type of lentil indigenous to Kashmir, packed with nutrients. Of course, I had to get some of it home to cook with in my kitchen. This Kashmiri Black Moth Daal Khichdi is the result!

This is such a keeper of a recipe, a one-pot meal that you can put together in minutes, yet super flavourful and power-packed. The black moth daal adds a lovely earthy flavour to the khichdi, while the Kashmiri ver masala I have used gives it a unique taste and colour. Do try out this recipe, just in on my photo blog!
