Ayurveda is the ancient science of medicine that offers the knowledge of longevity through various ayurvedic practices. Ayurvedic cooking is also one of the practices of ayurveda that suggests the method of personalizing food for each individual's healing process. Ayurvedic cooking teaches the art of cooking keeping in mind the dietary needs of an individual needed for the balance of tridosha (vata, pitta and kapha).

The ayurvedic cooking is based on the principle of five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space), the tridoshas (vata, pitta and kapha), the trigunas (sattava, rajas and tamas), the six tastes (Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Pungent, and Astringent). In addition to that, ayurvedic cooking also lays emphasis on the intentions and vibrations of the person cooking the food, the time of cooking and the atmosphere where the cooking is to be done.

Ayurvedic cooking gives more importance to herbs, spices, vegetables, legumes and fresh fruits, which makes the food digestible, tasty and aromatic and is served with the pure feeling of love and affection and thus thought to be cleansing the toxins of the body and stimulating the electrochemical metabolism of the body.

In ayurveda, food has been categorised into three types: Satvic, Rajasic and Tamasic. Each type of food has different effect on the body, mind and soul.

Sattvic

Sattva induces clarity, harmony and calmess in the mind. The food that promotes sattva are called the 'sattavic' food and includes fruits and vegetables, salads, fresh fruit juices, cereals, herbal tea, fresh cow milk, dry fruits, nuts etc.

Rajasic

Rajas promote energy and activeness in the body and the rajas food are called 'Rajasic'. Foods that are rajasic are canned food, basmati rice, paneer, ice cream, sugar, pickle, vinegar, garlic, onion and salted food.

Tamasic

Tamas is a property of mind that stimulates darkness, inertia and resistance inside an individual. The food that evokes tamas are called 'tamasic' and includes alcohol, meat, eggs, drugs, fried foods, mushroom tea and coffee.

Moreover, ayurvedic cooking helps you make food in such a way that has very positive effects on health and makes you feel more energetic and rejuvenated for a longer time.
