When I am on an Ayurvedic detox, I prefer to have kitchari for lunch as it contains everything I need, and it is still light and easy to digest. However, on weekends, I want some variety and want to share my meals with the family members who are not detoxing! So this noodle is for all! Afiyet olsun (in Turkish), enjoy!
