Kitchari: A Traditional Ayurvedic Meal

It is cooked like oatmeal along with salt and Indian spices. Kitchari is easy to digest and is traditionally consumed as a nourishing comfort food the way that people in the West would consume chicken noodle soup. This organic kitchari can also be used as a monodiet food; many people can use these packs for a kitchari cleanse, whereas some people simply enjoy it for its delicious, hearty taste!

Depending on your toppings, it can suit for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Fresh vegetables like potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, and peas can also be added to khichadi during cooking. Kitchari is often served with ghee (clarified butter), Indian pickles, and other condiments and is considered a complete meal, especially for vegetarians. Commonly used spices include:

  • Mustard seeds
  • Turmeric powder
  • Cumin seeds
  • Ginger
  • Fenugreek

For your convenience, we also make an Organic Kitchari Spice Mix, made from Organic Turmeric, Organic Coriander Seed, Organic Cumin Seed, Organic Brown Mustard Seed, Organic Ginger, Organic Fenugreek Seed, Organic Ajwain, Himalayan Pink Salt.

It is easy to cook, easy to digest, and is an excellent option when someone is sick or recovering from an illness.

Recipe for Kitchari: An Indian Comfort Food

Prepare the kitchari by rinsing in a colander. Then, in a heavy-bottomed stockpot, melt the ghee. Add the washed kitchari and sauté for a couple minutes. Then, add the water, along with the turmeric. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer partly covered for approximately 20 minutes or until it reaches the consistency of a stew. Add more water if needed. Stir occasionally. Pour in bowls and serve hot. Garnish with ghee and cilantro leaves.

Best Accompaniments: Ghee, yogurt, coconut flakes, fresh cilantro leaves, Indian pickle, pappadam, cilantro/mint chutney.

Hi! I'm Sandeep.

I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.

My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.

We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
