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.
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)
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.
