Ayurvedic Kitchari
Kitchari means mixture, usually of two grains. This is one kitchari recipe that is particularly nourishing and easy to digest. Please note the options below for some alternatives and, after the recipe, read more about this ancient dish.

Method

  1. Wash the rice and Mung dahl separately in at least 2 changes of water. Add the 6 cups of water to the rice and dal and cook covered until it becomes soft, about 20 minutes.
  2. While that is cooking, prepare any vegetables. Cut them into smallish pieces. Add the vegetables to the cooked rice and dal mixture and cook 10 minutes longer.
  3. In a separate saucepan, saut the seeds in the ghee until they pop. Then add the other spices. Stir together to release the flavors. Stir the sauted spices into the cooked dal, rice, and vegetable mixture. Add the mineral salt and chopped fresh cilantro and serve.

Happy Customer

I started taking Happy Turmeric three weeks ago. I feel noticeably less stiff and sore in the joints. Happy Hormones has changed my life and I have been taking them for 3 years now. Looking forward to starting Happy Greens with this order now.

Happy Hormones

I have used the products in the past and was very happy then got busy and didnt re-order and now know why I should have - they make a huge difference in my every day life - so I can get up and go

Happier healthy me

I find taking happy greens and turmeric gives me more energy and makes my mind sharper

No more mouth ulcers

Have had mouth ulcers for years-not anymore since taking HH and greens they are gone.

Amazing!

I have definitely noticed a difference in my mood and PMS, I feel so calm and balanced and definitely notice when I haven't taken the capsules. So glad I found a natural solution to balance my hormones (sleep, lifestyle, stress levels also need to be balanced for you to see results but this supplement definitely makes a difference.)
