Broken Wheat And Moong Sprouts Khichdi

My second recipe in this guilt free theme is a khichdi. Most of the people don't like to have khichdi. But I feel that khichdi is a delicious and heathy food. It can be served for breakfast, lunch  or for dinner. Normally khichdi is made with rice and moong dal or tuar dal and with vegetables or with out vegetables. But in this recipe I used moong sprouts and broken wheat to make this khichdi more healthy.
