Use Moji's Kitchari Masala packet to make a delicious, healing pot of Kitchari, an age-old ayurvedic rice and mung bean dish. Prepare this quick and healthy vegan meal in about 40 minutes using your leftover produce. Or eat it exclusively for 3-7 days as a nutritious cleanse.

Ingredients


½ cup basmati rice


½ cup split mung bean


1 tablespoon ghee or vegetable oil


1 packet Moji Masala Kitchari Masala


1 cup of vegetables of choice (optional)


1 teaspoon salt


3 cups of water (3.5 cups for a soupier consistency)




Directions


Step 1  Place rice and mung beans in a mixing bowl and rinse 2-3 times, until water runs clear.


Step 2  Place a medium size pot over medium heat.  After one minute add oil followed by contents of MM Kitchari Masala packet.  Stir for 10 seconds.


Step 3  Add rice and bean mixture, vegetables and salt and stir until well-coated with masala mixture.


Step 4  Add water, turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.  Lower heat to medium-low and cover for 30 minutes, or until rice and beans are tender.  Stir occasionally so the kitchari doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.


To Reheat Leftovers: Blend water in to thin out the Kitchari and reheat on low heat.
