Kitchri (also known as khichuri or kitcheree) is a homey, comforting, lightly spiced rice and lentil dish originally from India. The lentils—or dal—tend to melt into the rice, thickening the dish and adding wonderful earthy flavor. You can substitute yellow split peas for the lentils, if you like.

This is easy and delicious! The only unusual thing you need to buy is the panch phoran seasoning, but it's easy to find at any Indian or specialty food shop. This dish is also really low fat (only 3 tablespoons of oil spread out over 4 servings) and tastes even more flavorful the next day. Make it!
