Our Review Factors

What do we expect from this RTE khichdi? A delicious bowl of khichdi prepared in minutes with homestyle flavors and a clean ingredient list. 

The Taste Company Dal Khichdi was reviewed on the following parameters :

1. Taste

A traditional khichdi is a mix of dal, rice, fats and is seasoned using basic spices. When it comes to RTE meals, the primary aim is to examine whether the flavors are homestyle and well-balanced. Does this RTE khichdi taste fresh? What about the spice levels? Can we actually taste the ghee?

2. Texture

Under this parameter, we gauged the texture and consistency of the khichdi. The brand mentions that it contains onion and tomatoes – do they lend any textural variation to the khichdi?

3. Convenience

In this segment, we examine the preparation process of the khichdi. Is the RTE meal easy to prepare? Is the level of water mentioned apt or does it require any adjustments? 

4. Other Parameters 

The price, packaging and shelf life were the other non-tasting parameters judged during the review process. 

We reviewed all three variants of the Fortune Super Food Millet Khichdi. Here’s our take on each.

The Taste Company Dal Khichdi – Detailed Review

Product Highlights 

The Taste Company Dal Khichdi comes in a sturdy round-shaped box pack. Inside the box, the khichdi premix comes in a sealed pouch. The box does not hold any spoon or napkin.  

Main Ingredients 

The main ingredients include Dried rice (13.08%), Edible oil, Ghee, Salt, Toor dhal (7.85%), and Vegetables (9.06% – Onion, tomato, ginger, garlic, green chili, and coriander leaves). 

In addition, the seasoning ingredients are – Coriander powder, Cumin powder, Chili powder, tamarind paste, Asafoetida, Mustard seeds, Cumin seeds, Turmeric powder, and Dry red chili. 

Considering that this is an RTE meal, the absence of preservatives, added flavors, and other additives is a plus point here. We appreciate the clean ingredient list.

Cooking Method 

As mentioned on the pack, the cooking process is as follows :

  • Open the lid.
  • Tear the pouch.
  • Drop the food contents into the box.
  • Add hot water till mentioned mark.
  • Stir the food contents in the box.
  • Close the lid and wait for 5 minutes.
  • Open the lid.
  • Stir the food contents in the box. 

There is a water line on the inside of the box, which adds one step more to the convenience. We followed the exact same instructions for preparing the khichdi. Before tasting, we stirred the contents well.

Appearance-wise, the khichdi is yellow. It has a medium-thick consistency. There are visible specs of jeera and rai. We were not able to spot any veggies. 


This khichdi has a moderate spice level, which leaves room to add an extra ghee, zeera and mirchi tadka if required. The turmeric and salt level is adequate. It is very fresh in taste and has a characteristic homestyle touch to it. 

Though the ingredients highlight the inclusion of onion, tomato, ginger, garlic, green chili, and coriander leaves. In reality, we could not taste or feel any of the veggies separately. Only 1-2 leaves of coriander were visible in the entire khichdi.

Although the spice levels aren’t unbearable, for those who cannot tolerate excess heat, you can have this khichdi with some curd.


The dal and rice have combined well. We could see no lumps in the khichdi. The veggies, in particular, do not lend a distinguishing texture to the khichdi – but this is not a deal breaker. The consistency is homestyle as well.
