Considered to be the ultimate Ayurvedic dish, this nourishing and balanced meal is perfect for a wholesome detox dinner or reliable energy boost at lunch.
You can substitute the green beans and avocado for other green vegetables if you prefer, but generally these two are easy on the digestive system as well as providing significant nutritional benefits.
This dish is best served immediately after cooking, though does last well refrigerated.
