Instant Pot Kitchari Recipe

Kitchari is the traditional cleansing food which is a combination of split mung beans and white basmati rice with plenty of spices, depending on your constitution.

This recipe is very easy to prepare and not only it is healthy but it has a lot of flavor as well which makes it delicious!

Here's how you can easily prepare this great food with just using an instant pot:

pot of kitchari


  • 1/2 cup Basmati rice 

  • 1 cup mung dal (split yellow) 

  • 6 cups (approx.) vegetable broth (or water) 

  • A bit of Himalayan salt (1/4 tsp. or so) 

  • 1 tsp. ghee 

  • 1/2 tsp. coriander powder 

  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder 

  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder 

  • Handful of fresh cilantro leaves 

  • 1 and 1/2 cups assorted vegetables (zucchini, carrots, asparagus, sweet potato, mushrooms, broccoli)


Put instant pot on saute. Put in 1 tsp. of ghee and spices. Mix that all up to release the flavor.

Turn instant pot off. Add the mung beans and Basmati rice into the mixture and stir.

Add the veggies you like (I added onions, broccoli and mushrooms this time). Add the liquid. Select manual (or beans) setting for ten min.

Once it is done, release the pressure safely.

And Enjoy it :)

Use organic ingredients as often as possible. Your microbiome and your gut will thank you.
