Kitchari, Indian Fried Rice
Jonathan LOVES meat, so sometimes he needs to be coaxed into eating more vegetables… so we’ve got a quick and easy indian version of fried rice – it’s called “kitchari” and it’s full of bold spices, fragrant basmati rice, and it’s all made even better by cooking it in Lurpak butter. In fact, we think butter should be a staple in everyone’s fridge, it’s especially important to help add flavour in vegetarian cooking.
One of Kimberley and Jonathan’s children is gluten free, so rice is a perfect base to any dish because it’s naturally gluten free. We’re using the Sunrice family size pre-steamed Basmati rice, because it’s so quick and handy in the pantry. In fact, all the ingredients in this dish should live in your pantry or fridge as staples. You don’t have to microwave the rice, it’s pre cooked so it just needs to be warmed through in the pan.
Don’t forget, this dish can be a main meal or a side dish.Watch us teach Kimberley and Jonathan this recipe on Episode 4 of Kitchen Rescue on TenPlay
