khichdi

\Khich Dee\
0 0
Noun. December 10, 2013, Word of the Day
0

Definition

Khichdi is comfort food -- daal-chaval (rice and lentils) stewed together in a pressure cooker, often with spices and vegetables.

But it's also a versatile descriptive word, used to describe situations in which things are a hodge-podge jumble, or when something unsightly is happening.

Usage

Anna Hazare about Kejriwal's victory: If an alliance government (Khichdi sarkar) is made, then it is of no use.

In such a government, corruption rules the roost. He should not take the support (of any other party). If it is not possible to form a government, fresh elections should be held.
-- As quoted in popular press, December 2013

Frustrated Falguni: God, these roadworks mixed with monsoon have made a total khichdi of the road!

Submissive Student: Princy flogged that fellow Vikram so hard his face is like khichdi. Talking back to Chats in Chem class it simms!
