    Bonnie bonbon's Note:

    This recipe is based roughly on Amadea Morningstar's "Basic Warming Kichadi" from her book on Ayurvedic cooking. I have changed around the herb and spice combination to suit my tastes. You can add any vegetables you like or have in the fridge :c)

      I made this for dinner tonight in honour of celebrating the 3 trophies I'd won y'day{One Gold, One Silver and One Bronze on} and thoroughly enjoyed it. I did make a few adjustments to this recipe as follows: Instead of 8 cups of water, I used 4 3/4 cups. I did not have parsnips on hand, so I did not use that. Instead of 3 tbsps. of ghee, I used just 1 tbsp. of oil. I used 1 tbsp. of cumin seeds as a substitute for the roasted ground cumin. I used unroasted corriander powder instead of roasting it. Instead of the dried red chilli pepper, I used 1/2 tsp. of red chilli powder. I did not use the black pepper. Instead of 1/2 tsp. of salt, I used 1 tsp. I did not use lemon or lime juice in this. What I enjoyed most was the flavour of the basil leaves in this recipe. The taste does stand out. I served this with plain low-fat yoghurt and it was really nutritious and tasty. This is a keeper recipe and I will make this again for sure! Thank you for posting :)
