2 tbsp Ghee (or coconut oil)
1/2 medium Yellow onion (diced)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1 tbsp minced Ginger root
2 tsp Turmeric, powder
1/4 tsp Cardamom, ground

1. Soak rice and lentils separately, with a squeeze of lemon juice in each bowl. Add kombu, if using. In the morning, rinse well.
2. Heat a heavy-bottomed pot on medium heat. Add whole spices (mustard seed, cumin seed, coriander seed, fennel, fenugreek, cloves) and dry-sauté until spices just begin to pop a little.
3. Add ghee or coconut oil and onion. Sauté until onions soften a little. Add garlic, ginger and ground spices (turmeric, cardamom, asafoetida) and sauté a little longer, adding a bit of water if things get sticky or start to burn.
4. Stir in the rice and lentils with water or broth. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about an hour or longer. If you want it to be more of a congee keep adding water and cooking it longer.\
5. Stir in lemon juice and vegetables. Adjust for taste.
