In ayurvedic cuisine, Kicharee is a one dish meal that is light, easy to digest and assimilate. Eating kicharee is a comfort food while detoxifying.

Perfect for a spring cleanse.

1-2 tsp coriander                                                      1-2 tsp fennel

2-4 tbs grated fresh ginger                                     1 cmung beans (also called dal)

Rinse and soak your mung beans the night before you prepare the kicharee. Heat the ghee with the spices and ginger, about 30 seconds. Stir in mug beans and add 4 cups of water. Addrice. Bring to a boil and cook uncovered. Kicharee should be a soup like consistency. Will take about 45 mins to 1 hr.  to cook.
