Khichri (Everyday Indian Lentils & Rice)

Smells amazing, tastes delicious. Easy and cheap to make if you have the whole spices on hand (Grg). Reheats really well.

In a large saucepan, heat:
2 T oil

Add and saute 2 minutes:
1 large onion, chopped
2 green peppers, sliced
2 inch stick cinnamon
4 cardamom pods
4 whole cloves

Add & stir-fry about five minutes:
1 C uncooked rice [I used brown]
1/2 C lentils

1 1/2 C potatoes, cubed
1 C cauliflower, chopped [1/2 a bag of frozen]
1 lg tomato [1 can of fire roasted]
4 C water

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice, lentils & veggies are tender, 20-30 minutes. Consistency will be like stew, not dry or fluffy.
