Rice is every bit as versatile as pasta while containing fewer calories. It's gluten-free, non-allergenic, low in fat and sodium, and free of cholesterol. If you haven't had rice lately (or even if you have), here's a delicious ayurvedic recipe for wild rice.
- 1 cup of wild rice
- 5 cloves
- 2 bay leaves
- 6 cardamom pods
- 1½ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. Maharishi Ayurveda Vata Churna
- 3 cups water
- 1 Tbsp. ghee
- Sauté washed rice with all spices in ghee for 5 minutes on medium heat. Stir constantly.
- Add boiling water and cover until water evaporates to rice level.
- Lower heat and simmer until all water evaporates; approximately 35-40 minutes.
