In Parrikar’s summary, Khat Todi is described as an “uncommon [double-Ma] prakar…mostly sung by Jaipur-Atrauli and Agra musicians. In the main body of Todi, a small phrase of Khat is introduced” (i.e. the raga is more like ‘Todi seasoned with Khat’ rather than a more evenly-weighted combo). He cites two different Khat strains used by Jaipur-Atrauli vocalists (“Anandrao Limaye uses the gmPdnP cluster, whereas Mallikarjun Mansur co-opts RmRP”).
