Egg:

• Beat the egg well and fry in a good quantity of oil, The Omelette will puff up soft and nice. Remember, if you over-fry it, the egg will turn rubbery in texture.

Seasoning:

• Seasoning is the core secret of the true tastes of Khichdi and is like its life breath. So, be patient and meticulous in frying the Seasoning.

Hot Water:

• The Khichdi has a tendency to become thick and lumpy as it gets cold, because of the Moong Dal. You can thin out the Khichdi with hot water.
