Ayurvedic Staple Traditionally Used to Make Kitchari
Yellow mung dal is made from whole mung beans that have been hulled and split, resulting in a delicate lentil-like legume that is quick to cook and easy to digest. It is high in dietary fiber and an excellent source of protein, making this a healthy choice for vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike. When combined with our organic basmati rice and tasty Kitchari Spice Mix, you will have a simple and nourishing meal that is an Ayurvedic tradition—kitchari. Yellow mung dal is a staple food in many countries all over the world and certified organic dal can be difficult to find in the United States.
