I had a feeling I would like kitchari because I love basmati rice. And Indian spices (duh). It's meant to be nourishing and grounding and it definitely is both of those things. The smell wafting through the house while it was cooking was wonderfully earthy and spicy. This is my third day eating it and to be honest, I'm not tired of it. It is now my go-to comfort food, especially with the weather finally getting cooler.
If you want a bit more substance, you can top your serving of kitchari with half of an avocado. Or, eat some nice roasted or steamed seasonal veggies alongside it. Feel free to change up the spices to your liking. You can use a heaped tbsp of curry powder instead of the spices listed below to make it easier if you like. Or not It's completely up to you and what your body needs. Enjoy your weekend friends! Go out and buy some pumpkins and drink some hot tea! :)
