Mung Dal, Coconut And Cilantro Kitchari Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1/3 cup cilantro
  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 3/4 inch fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup mung bean
  • 1/4 tbsp mineral salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 6 cups water

Directions

Wash both the mung dal and the rice separately. Next, soak the mung dal for a few hours and drain. Add ginger, coconut flakes, cilantro and 1/2 cup water in a food processor and blend till it’s liquefied. On a medium flame, heat the ghee in a large saucepan and add the blended times, along with turmeric and salt. Stir well and bring this to boil. Add the rice, 6 cups water and mung dal and continue boiling, uncovered. After five minutes, cover leaving the lid slightly ajar. Lower the heat to simmer and cook for the next 25-30 minutes, till both the rice and dal are tender.

This can be great for digestion and is very cooling and relaxing for the body. You will also feel lighter after consuming this, and is extremely beneficial for overall health.

Very nice article Roopali Verma, but it doesn't say anything about whether we should eat this diet before having dinner or after we are done with the meal...\U0001f60c

For my body type, Basmati rice is a killer for weight loss. Instead Kerala matta rice works.
