|Whole Green Lentil and Brown Rice Porridge|
"Sabut Moong Kitchari" from "The Indian Slow Cooker Book" by Anupy Singla
I woke up at the crack of dawn because I had a meeting with a client, but my bleary eyed self read his email that he had "double-booked" himself. What now? I didn't want to try to go back to bed with the dogs and the cat and wake up my husband, who does not thrive on sleep loss (somehow I have the illusion that I do). Hmmmm.......Okay, just whip up some Kitchari and some Rajmah from The Indian Slow Cooker Book. The Rajmah takes 12 hours! But if I started it now then it would be done by the time I walked in the door tonight!

Verdict: The Kitchari rocked. I really was expecting something more bland (I am A Spicy Lady) because it didn't have a ton of spices in it. But it was bursting with flavor and I can see where you would be inclined to make it everyday! This dish is great because it has the rice and mung beans all in one pot. Sounds like Anupy's kids might be growing up on the stuff. The Mung Beans are very mild in flavor and supposed to be very digestible. I used to be able to get them in bulk at Whole Foods but the last few times I haven't seen them there. I ended up getting them at the Indian Store, where they don't carry organic anything. But I will probably try to order them organic next time.
