The Kitchari I ordered through you is the best comfort food, with or without spice... Even my 16 year old picky eater daughter likes it.

Reviewer: Emily H from OH United States  
I have nostalgic remembrances of kitcheri from my time at Amma's ashram in India, and remember it being touted as one of the most nutritious and healing foods for folks undergoing ayurvedic treatments there. It's something I'm hoping to add into my diet as a staple.
