An Introduction to Ayurveda Cooking!
Ayurveda is the ancient medical system of India. It offers one of the fastest paths to health. Students will learn Ayurvedic cooking for self-healing with Chef Teena. We will begin by taking a quiz to assess & reveal each students body type; Vata, Kapha or Pitta. Then, students will learn hands-on how to make the most popular recipes of the Ayurvedic Diet that include: - Kitchardi - a most delicious Moong Dal porridge that is the staple in India. It is easy to make, affordable and very healthy since it's a complete protein (rice & beans). - Alloo Green Bean Subji - curried sweet potatoes & long green beans - a combination that is simply flavorful! - Karela - curried bitter gourd (nutrient packed and a wonder vegetable for those suffering from Diabetes). - Cilantro Chutney - a fresh & fantastic condiment to every meal. - Hindustani halva (sooji ka halva) - semolina based dessert with ghee, nuts & dried berries. - Masala Chai (spiced tea). This class will leave your body feeling wholesome. "Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food." – Hippocrates
