They keep well.  Amazing that the mung beans and the basmati rice don't separate.  All you need to add is some turmeric for a bright yellow color to make yourself think you have added a load of ghee to it.

I think this is magic.  Using this with the Kitchari Spice mix helped me recover faster from the flu.
