SWEET KHICHDI

Last month we had been to my sister -in-law's place at B'lore. She had prepared so many dishes and one of them was Khichdi. She had added broken wheat to the khichdi and I found that it was tastier than the one which I usually make.  I used to prepare with semolina, which was my mother-in-law's recipe and I had already posted it on my blog. So I never bought broken wheat for the dishes that I prepare. My sister-in-law gave me a packet of broken wheat so that I can also prepare this.
