Comments:

I am a vegetarian for ethical reasons and I enjoy cooking. There are a few cookbooks that I turn to from time to time for concepts and ideas. Recipes are how you learn to cook but as you get cooking, you learn what it is that makes your food taste good or feel good (we have all had meals, hopefully not at home, which left us feeling sick afterwards). I wanted to get some understanding of Ayurvedic principles underlying traditional Indian vegetarian cooking. I am not at all religious and some small parts of the book strike me as a bit unscientific in explaining why something might work or not. However, other parts of Ayurvedic theory of medicine make sense to me. What do I expect this book to do for me? I am already an experienced and good cook so I don’t expect to learn new recipes. I bought this book because I wanted to know about Ayurvedic ingredient combinations that are optimal as well as to gain some knowledge of cooking for particular conditions (say stomach problems, chills…) which we are faced with in our daily lives with our families. And this I think is a unique contribution. The fantastic North Indian vegetarian recipes are just icing on the cake. I think any cook (vegetarian or otherwise) and those interested in holistic living should have this book in their collection. Here are the contents of the book: Editor’s Note Introduction Part 1 An Introduction to Ayurveda Ch 1 Principles of Ayurveda Ch 2 Balanced Nutrition Ch 3 Foods and Their Healing Properties Ch 4 Guidelines for Preparing and Eating Foods Ch 5 Food and the Cycles of Nature Ch 6 Food and Consciousness Part 2 The Recipes Ch 1 Introduction to the Recipes Ch 2 Snacks Ch 3 Dals Ch 4 Savory Rice Dishes Ch 5 Vegetable Dishes Ch 6 Paneer Dishes Ch 7 Yogurt Dishes Ch 8 Salads Ch 9 Condiments Ch 10 Breads Ch 11 Desserts and Sweet Fruit Creams Ch 12 Beverages Appendices App A Menu Combinations App B Recipes for Children and the Elderly App C About Milk Glossary Sources of Supply Index
