Kitchari – Traditional Blend

$19.00

Kitchari (dal) is a nourishing comfort food made of easily digestible split mung beans, long-grain white rice, and anti-inflammatory spices that assist in cleansing the digestive system and building immunity. Our blend of traditional Ayurvedic spices adds incredible flavor to this satisfying dish that is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Our Ayurvedic Kitchari blend includes the rice, mung beans, and spices needed for this one-pot meal for ease of preparation.  For added flavor and digestive benefits, add our organic grass-fed ghee during the cooking process. 

Ideal for cleansing the system, kitchari is gentle on our digestion whereas consuming raw foods during a period of cleansing can hinder comfortable digestion. In addition to using it as a cleansing food, ayurvedic kitchari can be enjoyed all year round, at any time of day as it is important for maintaining a healthy and strong Agni (digestive fire).

Our traditional Ayurvedic Kitchari blend includes Farmtrue’s blend of Ayurvedic cleansing spices to help enhance flavors and cleanse your digestive system.  The blend includes brown mustard seed, cumin seeds, turmeric, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, parsley, cilantro, peppercorns, fenugreek powder, cinnamon, cardamom, and cayenne pepper.

SPLIT YELLOW MUNG DAL

Sweet, cooling, and easily digestible, split yellow mung dal is a staple in a balanced Ayurvedic diet.

 

LONG-GRAIN WHITE RICE

Light and easy to digest, long-grain white rice helps to balance all three doshas.

 

BROWN MUSTARD SEEDS

Providing digestion strength, brown mustard seeds can help to relieve stomach discomfort. This herb helps to stimulate the digestive fire and balances vata and kapha while providing a delicious flavor to the kitchari.

 

CUMIN

Helping to flush toxins from the body, Cumin is balancing for all three doshas and adds a delicious layer of flavor to the kitchari.

 

TURMERIC

Turmeric is an immune-boosting herb used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to support digestion and help the body eliminate toxins. It also supports the function of the nervous system and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels.

 

CARDAMOM

Cardamom is best used for easing and assisting our bodies through digestional discomfort. Cardamom has also been used to support liver function and healthy cholesterol levels.

 


 

TO PREPARE

In a medium saucepan, add 1 tbsp of Farmtrue ghee and the contents of the spice packet. Stir until fragrant – do not burn.

Add any desired chopped vegetables to pan and saute for 1-2 minutes.

Add rice/bean mixture and 5 cups of water; bring to a boil. For soup like consistency, add 1-2 more cups of water.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with fresh parsley. Stir lightly and serve hot.

Delicious, nutritious, convienent

I have now ordered this item 3 times. I suppose I could attempt to recreate the seasoning mix, but the ease and convenience of everything together along with this being something so tasty and good for me, is hard to pass up. I have added different veggies depending on what is in season, though kale is one that usually makes its way in along with another one or two. At some time I do expect to try out the summer season option, also.

Kitchari - Traditional Blend

This was my first time using the product. I probably need more help in cooking it. I thought it was very bland.

Thanks for your feedback, Marjorie. We're happy to hear that you tried the Kitchari and understand that there can be a learning curve when cooking a new dish! Ktichari can be made in a variety of ways based on the seasonal vegetables and herbs available as well as your taste preferences. We also keep the salt to a minimum in our spice blend, so adding additional might help deepen the flavor.
