Mealthy Tip

Feel free to experiment with different water quantities for different variations on the same theme. Kitchiri is excellent with all sorts of sautéed vegetables. Try leafy greens, bell peppers, or eggplant. For even more plant-based protein, serve it with dal on the side.

This was very authentic tasting kitchiri. It's very filling and hearty, especially for a vegan dish. I also added bell peppers in addition to squash, and found all of the flavors to be very good together.

Mung beans are definitely underrated, but I think they're becoming more and more popular. I liked them in this dish, in addition to the squash and cumin seeds, which I rarely have an opportunity to cook with. Lots of flavor, definitely worth making again.
