My Mother's Ayurvedic Kitchen
Honoring Three Generations of Women and Their Adaptations to Gujarati Cuisi
by Amita Nathwani and Lindsay Mattison View author's profile page

Overview


Traditional Gujarati recipes, adapted for the modern world. When my mother moved from India's warm climate to Canada's cold winters, she had to adapt my grandmother's recipes. She no longer had access to many of the ingredients, and her new climate was too cold to follow traditional fermentation processes. In Ayurveda, we call this eating in harmony with the time and place you live, and the process of adaptation showed what happens with the evolution of food and family traditions when we open ourselves to the principles of food sustainability.

Description


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.
