The traditional Indian dish, kitchari, is highly recommended in Ayurvedic texts for its supportive role in healthy digestion. Kitchari can be consumed from time to time for its soothing effect on digestion, as part of a 7-day detox, or simply for its great taste. The Kitchari Spice Mix makes it easy to prepare your own kitchari at home. It contains mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, turmeric, natural mineral salt, and asafoetida, helping strengthen agni, reducing ama, and balancing your doshas.
Wash 1 cup of rice and mung dal and soak overnight. Drain the water. Warm 2 tbsps ghee in a medium saucepan. Add 1tbsp Kitchari Spice Mix and sauté for one to two minutes. Add rice and mung beans and sauté for a few more minutes. Add water and bring to a boil. Once the kitchari has come to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until the rice is tender (approx. 30–45 minutes). Diced vegetables may also be added while cooking, depending on your dosha type. Add more water if needed. Typically, kitchari is the consistency of a vegetable stew as opposed to a broth. Garnish with fresh herbs like cilantro and coriander. Add salt to taste (optional). Makes 4 servings.
