Good recipe! Stir during cooking to prevent baking on. With brown basmati rice, add rice at the same time as mung beans. Don't forget the _____'s Aminos (not salty enough otherwise!

I found a similar recipe for Kicharee several years ago that has addtional spices and herbs. It works great at "balancing" the body. I make sure to make enough to keep some in the freerzer for emergencies... cold season is coming on and I am too tired to cook, etc.

EC: Karmala is referring to the recipe located at the top of the kitcheree page!

I cooked this in a pressure cooker (10 minutes). I either had food poisoning or a virus and my stomach hasn't been right for a week. After just one day of kitcheree (dinner, breakfast, lunch, and dinner), I feel almost back to my normal energy levels and my stomach doesn't feel like I'm in a sailboat in a storm any more! I'm going to do it for a few more days (until I can't stand it any longer) as it's really helping me clean out my insides.

Both kitcheree and congee are great foods for convalescents and infants. I eat a rather plain kicheree when sick (just cumin added), but a Bengali-style one with sweet spices (cardamom, cloves, bay, peppercorns, cinnamon, cumin) for breakfast many mornings. I cannot imagine ever getting sick of it.
