This is one of my favorite meals! So comforting, the spices and amazing.
It ended up having way too much cloves. Add it little by little.
For vegan readers: Coconut oil is a good ayurvedic alternative to ghee.
I'm going to make this today!
Thanks - I'd like to try this. How often/how much do we eat of this?
This 7 day cleanse fast looks awesome and necessary... I am a loyal YJ. Reader! Thank you....
Is the above recipe for one serving? Or is it to share? As a detox are you supposed to replace your meals with kitchari or are you only supposed to eat one serving of kitchari per day?

Kitchari is a staple fast in Kundalini yoga - we tend to use the green mung beans rather than the mung dal, which leads to a longer cooking time, but it's very satisfying and nourishing.
Lots of people I know have used kitchari as a 40 day fast - for this you need to omit the coconut and add onions and lots of veg such as carrots, courgette (zucchini), squash, sweet potato, spinach, broccoli. Yum!
This is the Indian fasting food that I had mentioned last night - I couldn't remember the name of it, Kitchari.
