Description
 
India is a land of temples and gods. Special food offerings (bhog) are prepared for deities in each of these temples, often for a special occasion. Each deity has a list of their favorite foods, all vegetarian and sattvic, an Ayurvedic class of foods that are fresh, juicy, light, nourishing, and tasty, and thus give necessary energy and balance to the body. This February, Washington D.C. resident and Mumbai native, Rupen Rao, returns to COOK to share some sattvic offerings, including matar paneer (paneer cheese in a creamy sauce), butta saag (corn in a curried spinach sauce), chana masala (chickpea curry), poori (fried whole-wheat flatbreads) and shrikhand (golden sweetened yogurt). Rao, who has a line of cookbooks and spice blends, has made it his mission to take classic Indian cooking and adapt it to our day-to-day lifestyle here in the United States. Each guest will receive a copy of Rao’s “Ayurveda Cookbook,” a vegetarian Indian cookbook based on the principles of Ayurveda, the traditional Indian holistic science of living.
