Traditional Ayurvedic Spice Mix that Supports Digestion

• Supports a healthy appetite
• Promotes digestion
• Quick and delicious addition to dals, soups, and vegetables
• Balancing for all doshas

Kitchari is the Ayurveda staple food. Banyan Botanicals Kitchari Spice Mix was inspired by generations of Indian kitchens, along with well-respected Ayurvedic teachers. This traditional spice mix was designed with both your lifestyle and your health in mind: turmeric supports the immune system, purifies the blood, and promotes clear and healthy skin; mustard seeds support a healthy digestive fire; and cumin helps to support both a healthy appetite and digestive process.

This delicious and versatile spice mix also includes ginger, asafoetida, fenugreek, and mineral salt. Most traditional Ayurvedic kitchens have a box that contains five to six essential spices that are used in almost every meal. Banyan Botanicals has combined these spices together so that you can simply use a spoonful when cooking kitchari—though Kitchari Spice Mix is by no means limited to kitchari alone. Try it on roasted veggies, stir-fry, lentil soup, even popcorn! Life just got a whole lot easier—and tastier too!

How to make Kitchari:


1 cup basmati rice
½ cup yellow mung dal
1 tablespoon kitchari spice mix
2 tablespoons ghee
6 cups water
1–2 cups chopped vegetables (optional)


Wash rice and mung dal and soak overnight. Drain soak water. In a medium saucepan warm the ghee. Add the kitchari spice mixture and sauté for one to two minutes. Add rice and mung dal and sauté for another couple of minutes. Then add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Once the kitchari has come to a boil reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook until it is tender (approx. 30–45 minutes). If you are adding vegetables to your kitchari, add the longer cooking vegetables, such as carrots and beets, halfway through the cooking. Add the vegetables that cook faster, such as leafy greens, near the end. Add more water if needed. Typically, kitchari is the consistency of a vegetable stew as opposed to a broth. Garnish with fresh cilantro and add salt to taste (optional). Makes 2 servings
