Khichda is a popular Indian dish that is a variation on the dish known as Haleem. Traditional khichda is made with goat, beef, lentils, and spices that are slow cooked into a thick paste. This version is a vegetarian variant. The mushrooms have a thick and chewable texture that gives it a chewiness similar to meat. It also works extremely well in stews as the mushrooms carry flavor and seasoning much in the same way that chicken does.

Health Benefits
