The recipe

Rice and Raisin Ayurvedic Breakfast is a delicious breakfast which is really easy and quick to make as you can cook the rice in advance. For those of you who follow the Indian Ayurvedic health system, it is good for all three doshas.  If you know what your mind-body type is then Kapha types may prefer to use goat or soy milk, and Vata and Kapha types could add a little more cinnamon, but not Pitta types. You can prepare this breakfast and then take it to work in a flask if you wish, which will allow the flavours to develop and it will also become creamier.  You can dilute the milk with a little water if you wish. White basmati rice is preferred by Ayurveda as it is easier to digest than brown rice. Basmati rice also has a lower glycaemic index reading than other rice varieties and so won’t spike your blood sugar levels as quickly.


  • 130g white basmati rice, cooked (40g uncooked rice)
  • 250ml cow, goat or soy milk
  • 35g seedless raisins
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp dry fried sunflower seeds to garnish
  • Add a little melted ghee, honey or maple syrup if you wish


Step 1

Put the cooked rice, milk, raisins and cinnamon into a saucepan and cook on a medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes. Add the ghee, honey or maple syrup if using.

Step 2

Serve in bowls and garnish with the sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds can be dry fried in a small frying pan over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until they start to turn a little brown.
