KITCHARI: a dish traditionally made from yellow mung dal and basmati rice, along with digestive spices and ghee, which is used as a cleansing and detoxifying food in Ayurveda (a system of medicine with historical roots on the Indian sub-continent).
While we're no Ayurveda experts here at Drishti, we are occasionally lucky to absorb some of the wisdom from Ayurveda by hanging around in the Santa Barbara yoga community. We do know one thing for sure: this kitchari is super nourishing and delicious! Like healthy comfort food.
This vegan version of kitchari is the perfect one-pot meal for when you want something fresh and healthy, but haven't got the time to fuss around with something too fancy. It's also easy to adapt and modify according to what you've got in the spice cabinet / fridge / pantry!
