COZY KITCHARI

COZY KITCHARI

This is one of my absolute favorite go-to self care recipes. Kitchari is the ultimate nourishing, healing dish.  It is a grounding meal to prepare during times of transition, weak immunity, personal exhaustion, sickness and cleansing.  Not only is it warm & comforting, but the recipe calls for simple whole ingredients that are easy for the body to digest.

YOU WILL NEED:

1/2 C white basmati rice

1/2 C yellow split mung dal

6 C water

2 tbs ghee (butter or coconut oil will also work)

1 bay leaf

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp ground turmeric

1 handful cilantro leaves

salt & pepper to taste

*Makes 4-6 servings
