Cook's Notes

Several important minerals are removed in the refining process of traditional table salt. For maximum health benefits, use a mineral salt such as Celtic Sea Salt or Real Salt -- both can be found at most health food stores.

    I have not made this recipe but I make kichari frequently and I would personally eliminate the cardamom and cinnamon. I also prefer it without fennel seeds. I find those spices too sweet. For the amount of mung beans & rice I would also add more cumin and mustard seeds.
