GOING GLOBAL BEING LOCAL
Khichdi one of the most popular and nutritious dishes from our country has left its footmarks on a global platform as it has now been considered to the most versatile and high on balance food from our cuisine and my innovative twists on khichdi have now evolved a number of unusual varieties to the basic recipe as well.

Khichdi has always been a very enjoyable moment for me to prepare and also enjoy it as a meal with a bowl of curd or raita and papad, salad alongside. While I also accepted a challenge sometimes back of creating global desi khichdi varieties to suit a menu card of a client it truly made me put on my thinking chef cap and scribble down some combinations and concoctions answering the how and what to add into the khichdi in order to make it taste and look new and tasty.

During the course of time I was able to work on almost 12 different options with global cuisines attached to our desi dal khichdi concept and the trials and experiments was great fun, the tasting panel of course had the best time having every single bit full of flavor and twist of taste in it. Some of my creations included indo- Italian dal khichdi, indo- Mexican tadka khichdi, Spanish olive, and lentil khichdi, the tender coconut spiced Filipino style fusion khichdi, the Schezuan tadke wali chicken tikka khichdi, and many more.
