Kitchari spice mix helps stimulate your digestive fire so you can absorb all the goodness from your food. The spice mix includes mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, turmeric, natural mineral salt and asafoetida and is intended to be added to rice and mung dal when you prepare kitchari. This jar is enough to make approximately 7 batches of kitchari using the recipe below.
Ingredients: Organic Brown Mustard Seed, Organic Turmeric, Mineral Salt, Organic Cumin Seed, Organic Ginger, Asafoetida, Fenugreeek.
1 cup basmati rice
1/2 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 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 water and bring to a boil. Once the kitchari has come to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until tender (approximately 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).
Makes 2 servings.
