THE WINNER GETS …
From renowned cookbook authors and friends of Jugalbandi, Pratibha Jain and Jigyasa Giri comes Sukham Ayu: Cooking at home with Ayurvedic Insights. This book is a collection of recipes and principles underlying Ayurveda – the ancient system of traditional medicine from India. Better still, it’s AUTOGRAPHED.
Sukham in Sanskrit stands for “healthy”. Ayu commonly means “life” or “lifespan”. It also means “state of unity”, where the the physical body, senses, mind, and soul are integrated.
An absolute treasure with a wealth of information and stunning pictures with each of their 63 recipes.
This is their second culinary publication. The first – Cooking at Home with Pedatha – was wildly successful and won the Best Vegetarian Cookbook Award at the 2006 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
This collection of recipes consists of daily, simple, vegetarian dishes that all Indian homes are familiar with. A closer look will reveal the fine thread of Ayurvedic insights binding them together, for what makes food healthy and ‘Ayurvedic’ is proper combinations, compatibility and methods of cooking. Thus, these recipes have been included with a clear focus on freshly cooked food, on the correct use of spices to enhance taste and good health, on the right combinations that make them tridoshik, or ‘agreeable to all doshas’.

Ayurvedic food? No wonder the country’s diving into the science with such enthusiasm. Thanks to the influence of decades of western diets, it’s become only natural to believe that health is about deprivation. No sugar. No oil. And definitely no ghee.
Then Jigyasa Giri and Pratibha Jain released “Sukham Ayu: Cooking at home with Ayurvedic Insights.”
… The duo spent the last two-and-a-half years researching, writing and cooking to create this book. Bright, friendly and practical, it’s a layman’s guide to Ayurvedic food. “We found that there are thousands of books on Ayurveda, and lots of good writing. But for a common person you have got to break it up,” says Jigyasa, adding that Ayurveda is really a way of living, a science of life.
See what the two gorgeous ladies look like and the full review HERE.
Thank you, dear Pratibha and Jigyasa.
