Winter Kitchari

Winter Kitchari — A feel-good mixture of rice and lentil with a good balance of spices that eliminates accumulated toxins from the mind and body tissues, improves digestion and restore regular bowel movements.

Here is my take on ayurvedic winter kitchari ☃️🌈


1 cup brown rice
1 cup red lentil
250 ml coconut cream
800 ml water + more as needed
1/2 lemon juice
1.5 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp chili flakes
2 tsp pink himalayan salt
1 red onion
4 garlic cloves minced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil with chili 
Cashew yoghurt to serve
A handful of fresh parsley

1. Wash and rinse lentil and rice together. Place in a deep pot, add water and bring to boil until absorbs all water content. 
2. Add the coconut cream, curcumin, coriander, cumin, salt and chili. Stir together. Continue to cook for additional 1-2 minutes.
3. In a pan, sauté onions and garlic with a little bit olive oil or water. Transfer to the pot, stir together with kitchari.
4. Lastly add lemon juice and mix everything together.
5. Serve kitchari with cashew yoghurt, fresh parsley and a drizzle of chili oil if desired. Enjoy!
