Recipe Ingredients for Kitcharee

1 cup basmati rice
1/2 cup mung beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups water
1/2 teaspoon mustard seed
1 teaspoon caraway seeds

Recipe Directions for Kitcharee

  1. Wash the rice and mung dal well and let soak for a few hours, when possible. (Soaking lentils increases their digestibility and prevents gas from accumulating).

  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the ghee or oil and add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and hing. Stir until the seeds start to pop. Turn off heat and allow this mixture to cool momentarily.

  3. Add the rice, mung dal, turmeric and salt and stir until well blended with the spices.

  4. Add the water and, turn the heat back on and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low, cover and cook until kitchari is tender, about 20-25 minutes.
