When I feel like a healthy savoury breakfast this Sri Lankan lentil dish is always perfect, and hits the spot served with spinach and wholemeal pita. It’s not uncommon to have lentils for breakfast in South Asia and my version took about 10-15 minutes to prep and cook.
Happy tummy, skin, eyes and body this morning with a power packed bowl of goodness! Ayurvedic green breakfast porridge of fresh greens, coconut milk, red rice and turmeric.
The bitter greens balance out any internal heat and inflammation (not to mention chlorophyll in general being detoxifying, improving digestive health and oxidation), the coconut milk is nourishing and strengthening to the body, and the wonder spice turmeric is anti inflammatory, antioxidant, lowers risk of heart disease and improves brain function.
Traditionally enjoyed in Sri Lanka as ‘kola kande’. I’ve had lots of requests to share this recipe.. so here it is, below!
