Kitchari Spice | Curcuma Kitchen | 3 oz


Kitchari Spice is a savory blend of spices used to promote healthy digestion, support gentle detox & boost immunity. The traditional Ayurvedic dish of Kitchari hails from India and combines a grain, a bean with gut-supportive spaces. The typical combination includes mung bean, mung dal or lentils with basmati rice, but you can also use quinoa!

This dish is a staple in the healing-through-food approach of Ayurveda because it’s nutrient dense, easy to digest, and supports healthy detox. Kitchari is especially supportive for post-partum mothers to support the healing & recovery process. 

This flavorful spice blend can be used to make traditional kitchari, but is also delicious on roasted vegetables, stir-fry, lentil dahl, soup, or even popcorn! Use it like you would curry spice for a unique flavor boost.

How to make Kitchari

2-4 cups water
1 cup quinoa or rice
1 cup mung bean or lentils
2 Tbsp Kitchari Spice
2-3 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee
1 Tbsp ginger (optional)
1 cup vegetables (optional)
