What is Galho?

Rice preparation from the state of Nagaland, packed with vegetables is Galho. It has consistency as that of khichadi. However, no lentils are used to make galho recipe otherwise it would have been very close to vegetable khichadi. As such it is a non-vegetarian dish and also uses fermented soybeans and bamboo shoots, but we are preparing the vegetarian version of galho without any fermented ingredients. It can be served for breakfast or light lunch or dinner.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Galho recipe:

Rice recipes are crowd-pleasers. Rice is relished in many forms, be it pulao recipes or biryanis or khichadi recipes. And when combined with vegetables what you get is a complete meal. Following is all that you need to make Cabbage Palak Galho:

Rice: Since the dish has the consistency of khichadi, I have used the khichadi rice for this recipe. You can also use Basmati rice.

Vegetables: I have added cabbage and spinach. You can use any leafy vegetable of your choice. Further, you can add vegetables such as beans, carrots, etc. Further to flavor the galho I have sued tomato, ginger, and green chili. You can also use garlic.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
