    Kitchari Kit Contents:
    • Organic Yellow Mung Dal and Organic Rice: When cooked together these two Ayurvedic staples combine to make a delicious, thick soup called kitchari. Easy to digest, kitchari is a nutritious whole food that will sustain you.
    • Organic Kitchari Spice Mix: This traditional spice mix helps stimulate your digestive fire so you can absorb all the wholesome goodness from your food. The spice mix includes mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, turmeric, natural mineral salt and asafoetida and will be added to the rice and dal when you prepare your kitchari.
    • Organic Ghee: Made from 100% organic, sweet cream butter that was churned from the goodness of milk produced by grass-fed and pastured cows, this rich Ayurvedic treat is said to nourish both body and mind. It also helps to strengthen the digestive fire and promotes healthy digestion.
    Kitchari Recipe (Makes 4 servings )
    • 1 cup basmati rice
    • half cup mung dal
    • 3 teaspoons kitchari spice mix
    • 2 tablespoons ghee
    • 6 cups water
    • 1-2 cups chopped vegetables (optional)
    Wash rice and mung dal and soak overnight. Drain soak water.
    In a medium saucepan warm the ghee. Add the kitchari spice mixture and saute for one to two minutes. Add rice and mung beans and saute for another couple of minutes. Then add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Once the kitchari has come to a boil reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until it is tender (approx. 30-45 minutes). If you are adding vegetables to your kitchari, add the longer cooking vegetables such as carrots and beets halfway through the cooking. Add the vegetables that cook faster such as leafy greens near the end. Add more water if needed. Typically, kitchari is the consistency of a vegetable stew as opposed to a broth. Garnish with fresh cilantro and add salt to taste (optional).
