Kitcheri is a simple “main dish” for lunch or dinner. Recipe: 2 parts mung dahl and 1 part rice, well cooked in a large am9unt (about 12 parts) of water to form a soupy consistency. For about two servings, use 1/4 cup dahl and 1/8 cup rice in 3 cups water. Again quinoa is a substitute for rice if elimination is slow.
