Multi-grain Mung Khichadi
Serves 5
Sattvic, three dosha balancing, heart healthy and super easy to prepare.. My all-time favorite comfort food, the go-to choice during intense sadhana and energetic imbalance, as well as after long trips away involving frequent eating out..

  1. 1/3 cup each of quinoa, cracked wheat and brown rice
  2. 1/2 cup each of whole green gram and split mung
  3. 1 stick celery, finely chopped
  4. 1/2 inch ginger, finely minced
  5. 2 cups mixed greens (I used kale, spinach and mint)
  6. 1/2 tsp each of black pepper, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, coarsely ground
  7. 1 sprig curry leaves
  8. 1-2 dried red chillies (optional)
  9. 1 generous tsp turmeric
  10. Salt to taste
  1. Wash quinoa several times in tepid water separately. Wash other grains together. Keep aside.
  2. Easiest when prepared in a pressure cooker - on sauté mode, heat a tsp of EVOO and add a few black peppercorns and curry leaves, red chillies, celery and ginger. Sauté until tender.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and sauté for 1-2 min and add 6-7 cups of water.
  4. Close lid and cook on choice of setting until tender.
  5. Open lid when ready, and mix in the greens.
  6. Serve hot.
  1. Best eaten in solitude and silence, savoring every mouthful
