28-12-2016

Ingredients:

1/2 cup basmati rice

1 Tsp. mustard seeds

1/2 cup mung dal

1 Tsp. cumin seeds or powder

7 cups water

1 Tsp. coriander powder

A bit of salt

1 Tsp. fennel powder

2 Tbsp. ghee 1 pinch asafoetida (hing)

2 Tsp. turmeric(zerdecal ) powder ,veggies such as zucchini, sweet potato or chopped greens, peas,carrot,green bean and whatever you like.

Wash rice and dal and then add to a pan.

Add water, bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 mins or until the water is reduced half way, then add vegetables.

In a separate pan, sauté the spices in ghee for one minute, add the mustard seeds toward the end and remove from the pan when they start to pop. Add the spices and ghee to the rice and dal. Stir well and cook until the veggies are done.  –Yogaglo

It makes a great meal for people who are looking for a good protein source. It is used as a cleansing mono diet in the Ayurvedic tradition as it balances all different body types and constitutions. It is traditionally made with white basmati rice (though I prefer brown!) and high-protein mung dal. If you cannot find mung dal in your local stores, then you can try this recipe with lentils.
