Mixed Vegetable Khichdi is the healthiest as well as comfort food for everyone. It is healthy because we use all the vegetables which provide sufficient proteins to our body. This is good even for kids. The choice of the vegetables is completely upto us. Here I have used beans, carrot and potato but you can use any other if you don't prefer these vegetables. Have a look!
