My Mother's Ayurvedic Kitchen lets you explore the world of Gujarati cuisine and teaches you how to bring these surprisingly simple, nourishing, and delicious recipes into your own kitchen. If you're unfamiliar with cooking Indian food, this cookbook is a great place to get started. Gujarati cuisine is simple, featuring vegetarian ingredients that come alive with the addition of a few key spices.
My family would say this food is the healthiest on the planet — you might argue with us, and that's okay — but at the very least, we will say our recipes do closely follow the principles of Ayurveda.
My Mother's Ayurvedic Kitchen includes:
17 vegetarian recipes – Discover the flavorful, nourishing world of Gujarati cuisine, including Kicharee (mung bean and rice soup), Kadhi (spiced yogurt soup), Toovar Daar (pigeon pea soup), Dhokla (savory steamed semolina cakes), and more
The six tastes and eight dietetics of Ayurveda – Dip your toes in the world of Ayurveda and create meals that bring balance to the mind and body.
Simple ingredients, delicious results – We've offered suggestions on each recipe for making substitutions with ingredients you can find at the grocery store.
I am honored to share my family's recipes with you in the hopes that they can do for you what they did for me: Find the balance within the inevitable imbalance of life.
