Today I make my Kitchari with very simple ingredients, the main two being basmati rice and small yellow lentils ( Moong Dal ). I am using a few simple spices and plenty of ghee.

You’re making this as part of a meal, you can really serve it with anything. You can serve it with a meat-based curry, vegetables, and a side of (Indian pickles) you love this hot lentil rice dish!

  • In an Instant Pot, press the sauté button, add dry yellow lentils ( moong dal ) dry fry for 7 to 8 min. until lentils light golden and smoky smile. take all lentils in a bowl.
  • Now lentils and rice mix together, wash, and soak for 20 min in water.
