Kitchari is a traditional Ayurvedic dish from India that combines a grain, a bean and savory spices that support detox, strong digestion and immunity. This dish is a staple in the healing-through-food approach of Ayurveda because it’s nutrient dense, easy to digest, and supports healthy detox.
Our favorite Kitchari recipe combines mung beans & quinoa, but you can use other combinations like lentils & rice.
This flavorful blend can be used to make traditional kitchari, but is also delicious on roasted vegetables, stir-fry, lentil dahl, soup, or even popcorn! Use it like you would curry spice for a unique flavor boost.
