by Bhakta Chris

Dear Devotees,

Here are a couple of recipes which go perfectly together.

Ingredients: 6 tbs ghee or oil, 3 tsp cumin seeds, 3 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp hing, 2 or 3 small chillies, 1 tsp fresh chopped ginger, 1/2 cup oily toor dhall, 1 cup rice, 1 large potato, 2 carrots, 3 tsp salt, 500g assorted vegetables (eg broccoli, colliflower, peas, sweetcorn, beans, cabbage etc.) 1/3 tsp turmeric. 6-7 cups water. Optional 3 fresh tomatoes and 3 tbs chopped fresh corriander.

Method: In a large pan, heat the oil and  add the cumin & mustard seeds, the hing, chillies. When the seeds are popping add the ginger. Fry until brown. Add the dhall and potatoes. Fry for two minutes. Add 5 cups of water, carrots, and any vegetables you would normally boil. When boiling add the rice. Stir well, after ten minutes add the salt and turmeric. Cook on a low heat stirring regularly. Add more water as it is absorbed by the rice. Cook until the dhall and rice begun to break down. The kicheree should have a creamy consistency. At this point add the fresh tomatoes and coriander leaves, mix them well. Cooking time aproximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
