Banyan Botanicals Kitchari Kit

When rice and dal are cooked together these two Ayurvedic staples combine to make a delicious, thick soup called kitchari. Easy to digest, kitchari is a nutritious whole food that will sustain you throughout your cleanse. This kit provides all the basic supplies you need to make Kitchari for 7 days. 

What's Included

  • Organic Yellow Mung Dal (1.65 lbs)
  • Organic Basmati Rice (3.15 lbs)
  • Kitchari Spice Mix (3.5 oz) 
  • Organic Ghee (7.5 oz)

Organic Yellow Mung Dal (1.65 lbs)
Hulled mung beans are called mung dal. The flavor is refreshing and crisp with a touch of sweetness.

Organic Basmati Rice (3.15 lbs)
Basmati is a long-grained rice that has a delicious nut-like flavor and aroma.

Kitchari Spice Mix (3.5 oz)
This traditional spice mix helps stimulate your digestive fire so you can absorb all the wholesome goodness from your food. The spice mix includes mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, turmeric, natural mineral salt, and asafoetida and will be added to the rice and dal when you prepare your kitchari. Recipe included with the kit.

Organic Ghee (7.5 oz)
Made from 100% organic, sweet cream butter that was churned from the goodness of milk produced by grass-fed and pastured cows, this rich Ayurvedic treat is said to nourish both body and mind. The ghee will provide the kitchari with an oily quality that helps loosen and remove toxins during the cleanse. It also helps to strengthen the digestive fire and promotes healthy digestion.

Suggested Use

  • Wash rice and mung dal and soak overnight. Drain soak water.
  • In a medium saucepan warm the ghee. Add the Kitchari Spice Mix and sauté for one to two minutes. Add rice and mung dal and sauté for another couple of minutes. Then add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  • Once the kitchari has come to a boil reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until it is tender (approx. 30–45 minutes).
  • If you are adding vegetables to your kitchari, add the longer cooking vegetables, such as carrots and beets, halfway through the cooking. Add the vegetables that cook faster, such as leafy greens, near the end.
  • Add more water if needed. Typically, kitchari is the consistency of a vegetable stew as opposed to a broth. A thinner consistency is preferable if your digestion is weak. You will notice that kitchari will thicken when it cools and you may need more water than you originally thought.
