Kichari is a traditional rice dish rich with protein (mung beans) and packed with lovely fresh herbs and spices.
Start by boiling your mung beans for around 10 minutes.
After 5 minutes, dry fry your fennel and cumin seeds until they become fragrant.
To the mung beans add the rice, fresh and dry spices - cook for 30 minutes on a medium-low heat with the lid on.
Take off the heat and add your spring onions and mix well.
Garnish with olive oil, fresh coriander and lime juice (lime wedges for decoration is optional).
