Kitchri

boiled rice, dahl and vegetables

I cup rinsed moong (mung) dahl

1 1/2 cups rice (basmati rice)

4 cups of vegetables, cauliflower, potato, carrot, zuchini (anything really)

some veg oil for frying spices, maybe 1-2 tablespoons

1 tsp tumeric

2 tsp ground coriander (cilantro)

grated ginger maybe 1 tsp

Fry spices until they change colour, add the vegetables, stir so they coated in spices, add dahl and rice add water to cover everything, put lid on and simmer. I add salt to taste, maybe 1 tsp. I eat with natural yoghurt.

The dahl and rice could go in at different times the dahl takes longer that the rice to cook. That is the basic recipe, I havnt cooked it in a while but I ate that dish everyday for nearly one year. I love it.

Simple dahl

I red bell pepper ( I think thats it, we call it capsicum, check image search)

I 1/2 cup rinsed moong dahl

1tsp tumeric

1 tsp groung coriander

veg oil

Fry spice, add capsicum, fry for a few minutes, add dahl, stir a little bit, cover with water, put lid on. Keep an eye on it, add more water if it dries out, it should be quite runny, not like water, thick like cream. You can add amaranth and quinoa for added nutrition

Different spice mix (masala) for the kitchri is, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp black mustard seeds, fry the seeds first for 30 seconds then add 1tsp tumeric, 2 tsp coriander, 1 tsp ground fenugreek, pinch asafoteda powder, 1/2 tsp chilli (to taste/tolerance)

I wish you all love and peacefulness
