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.

Love this stuff?

Was recommended the powder by a friend's mum and have always had it since then, great formy anxiety and moodswings! Getting my sister onto it as well.

1 bottle down and working well

I ordered HH after reading some reviews on online mums forums.
I have now finished 1 bottle and am ordering more.
I combined my first bottle with the liver detox powder, and have been feeling great.
My last period (whilst heavier in the first few days), was 3 days shorter than normal, and the pain was easily managed with basic paracetamol (I have endometriosis and adenomyosis).
I am looking forward to seeing further results the longer I am on the products.

Happy weight

I've just set up my account and made my first order and it was easy peasy... looking forward to getting started on this new journey...

Convenience

The capsules are now my go to. It doesn’t matter if it’s my regular shake, or a weekend omelette I can still have them. Too easy. And the discounts for buying bulk are very generous 😊

Took my time

Finally brought today after reading so many awesome reviews and did the test. Hopefully on and up. Cheers
