Where Khuri Kitchri orignated from?

Khichṛī (Hindustani pronunciation: [ˈkʰɪtʃɽiː]), alternate spellings khichdi, khichri, khichdee, khichadi, khichuri, khichari, khitchdee, and many other variants, (Hindi: खिचड़ी khicṛī,[1] Urdu: کھچڑی khicṛī, Bengali: khichuṛi, Gujarati: ખીચડી khichḍi) is an Indian food preparation made from rice and lentils (dal). Khichdi is also a popular light fare in neighboring Pakistan and Bangladesh. Khichri is commonly considered to be a comfort food.

Khichri is very popular dish of Suratis in southern Gujarat. It is served with special kadhi and adon dishes such as Surati undhia and vangan na ravaiya.

Khichdi is commonly served with another Indian dish called kadhi. Other common accompaniments are papads, beguni (deep fried eggplants in a besan batter), ghee (clarified butter),achar (oil based pickle), and yogurt.
