Kitchari is akin to mac n’ cheese in the sense that it is traditional Indian comfort food. Don’t be fooled by the modest nature of the ingredients--mung beans and rice. Mixed with the right spices, this recipe creates a complex mix of spice, warmth and yum. People love it! It calls for ghee, which is clarified butter. Ghee is a traditional Ayurvedic food that has been used in India for thousands of years for both cooking and medicinal purposes. It is easy to make, lactose friendly, rich in vitamins, promotes a healthy digestive tract, and when made from grass fed cows can promote weight loss. You can also buy ghee pre-made at an Indian grocery store or any health food store.
