Mealthy Tip

Kitchari is used as a cleansing food in Ayurvedic medicine. People suffering from stomach distress will eat nothing but kitchari for a full day, a week, even up to a month! However, it retains many of its detoxifying qualities even when eaten for only one meal. Here's a look at more Pressure Cooker Recipes.

I like to do detoxes from time to time, and now I'm thinking about doing a kitchari cleanse. I made this recipe using a homemade ghee recipe and skipped the ginger. Loved the way it turned out.

I do kitchari cleanses all the time! The longest one I did was a full week. Cooking it in the pressure cooker makes it so much easier.

I love to add veggies to my kitchari like cilantro and zucchini. This version is great as a base. I added veggies to make it my own.

I added fennel and seaweed fr extra flavor. Love being able to dump everything in the pot and cut the cooking time down. Makes it really easy.

I ate this stuff for a week, and making it in my pressure cooker made it super quick and convenient to stick to my detox. Sometimes I mix in vegetables with it, but for the most part eat it plain. If you've never tried it before, this is a great recipe to start with.

For a novice of sorts, this was so convenient. It was cooked so well and tasted just perfect. I would probably add some more salt to my liking as the 1/4 teaspoon felt too low. May add some more cumin too as I love its flavour. Wonder how it would be to sauté the cumin, mustard, turmeric in the Ghee prior to adding the moong dal and rice...well, just a thought! Thanks for thatJordan and Mealthy!
