  • Customize your khichdi by adding vegetables like carrots, peas, or spinach.
  • Serve khichdi with a dollop of yogurt or pickle for extra flavor.

1. Can I make khichdi without a pressure cooker?

Yes, you can cook khichdi in a regular pot on the stovetop. Simply follow the same instructions but adjust the cooking time accordingly, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

  • 1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides for easy removal.
  • 2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and granulated sugar together until the mixture becomes pale and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • 3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • 4. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, you want a light and airy batter.
  • 5. Pour the batter into the prepared jelly roll pan and spread it evenly.
  • 6. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cake is lightly golden and springs back when gently touched.
  • 7. While the cake is still warm, dust a clean kitchen towel generously with powdered sugar. Carefully flip the cake onto the towel.
  • 8. Starting at the shorter end, roll the cake and the towel together into a tight cylinder. Allow it to cool completely.

Assembling the Strawberry Roll:

  • 1. Gently unroll the cooled cake, removing the towel.
  • 2. Spread a generous layer of strawberry jam evenly over the cake, leaving a small border at the edges.
  • 3. Evenly spread the whipped cream over the jam.
  • 4. Carefully roll the cake back into a cylinder, using the parchment paper to assist you. Make sure the seam side is facing down.
  • 5. Trim the ends of the roll for a neat finish if desired.
  • 6. Refrigerate the strawberry roll for at least 1 hour before serving to allow it to set.
