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.

Easy to order

My first time. I’m 57 and still relatively regular cycle but that is starting to fluctuate. I now get hot flushes, not sleeping well and very restless of a night. I’ve always been quite relaxed but find myself getting anxious and irritable so no doubt the big M is catching up!!! The worst thing is I m gaining weight even though I’m fit and active, and don’t seem to be able to lose it!!! Anyway, I’ll leave another review after I finish the first month.
