KITCHREE (SPICED YELLOW DAL WITH RICE) RECIPE

Kitchree (Spiced Yellow  Dal with Rice) Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A combination of rice and yellow lentils  make this a nutritious meal. I serve  my  Kitchree or Kitchari  with Ayam Masak Merah (Chicken in Spicy Red Sauce),

You can  make this rice on stove top  following my  recipe below or use rice cooker.

For rice cooker, fill your cooker with water, milk, yogurt, salt and turmeric and bring to boil by pressing the 'cook' button.  In a separate pan, heat the ghee, fry onion,  cinnamon, cardamom,, cloves, ginger and garlic till fragrant.

Once the water is boiling, add in rice, lentils and the fried  spices.  close lid.  You need not worry about burnt rice, the rice cooker would take care  for you.

I've never heard of this dish before, but it looks good. I may even convince my kids to try it if I don't add a lot of spices...

Ooooo yum. I could have this as as for a meal and feel completely satisfied. Love the fact that the rice and lentils are cooked in a milky, yogurt water. Can't wait to give it a try
