Finally here we are with the lovely combo of Potato Kichadi and Seasame Chutney. Make this and let me know how you like it.

Note :
------

1)My friend makes this with Basmati Rice.If you use basamati rice adjust the amount of water accordingly.

2)I substituted olive oil for butter.

3)Adjust the chilies in the sesame chutney according to your taste.If the chillies are too hot the chutney might get very spicy.



I am sending this Potato Kichadi with Sesame Chutney to the Combo Event being organised by Pari of Foodelicious.
