Kicharee

 

Ingredients

1/2 cup split mung dal

3/4 cup basmati rice (or other grain)

1/2 tsp organic turmeric

1/2 tsp organic ginger

1/2 tsp organic cumin

1/2 tsp organic coriander

(Adjust herb flavours to your preference)

4 cups of water or vegetable stock

Seasonal vegetables: spinach, carrots, peas, or seaweeds, shitake mushrooms for an all-round healing, healthy meal.

 

Method

    1. Simmer the mung dal and rice in the water. Add all the herbs and then the vegetables. The best practice is to cook it on a very low heat in a covered saucepan and DO NOT stir it after all the ingredients are added or it will go mushy.

    2. Stir in a teaspoon of ghee or coconut oil at the end. Sprinkle with lemon juice and fresh coriander before serving.
