VeganMofo 2015 – Day 26: It’s so cold and rainy and there’s a snow drift outside your door! What are you going to make using the ingredients you have?
I’ll pretend it’s not spring and I didn’t go to the market this morning ????
This is Khitchiri. If Breyani (or biriyani in some dialects) is said to be the Indian rice dish of royalty then Khitchiri (kitchari to some) is the rice dish of peasants. A one pot wonder that I learnt to make by the Hare Krishna’s many years ago in their food not bombs program feeding homeless people in Johannesburg.
The only fresh ingredients are staples and I have in my pantry most times of the year.
