#20 The Masala Khichdi House 

Well we all know, khichdi is termed as “bimaro ka khana”. Who likes it ? Forget kids, we adults also dread having it. But if I make a honest confession, then it’s one of the most healthiest meal one can have at anytime of the day. 

So to make this boring meal interesting I decided to add some sweetness to our plain mundane masala khichdi, on my platter by creating a cute house setup.

The masla khichdi platter consists of –

  • The house made of masala khichdi, bread and chikki
  • Sun made of monaco biscuit
  • Tree made of cucumber and bourbon biscuit
