Ayurveda emphasises the importance of simple cooking methods to ensure that meals are wholesome and easily digestible.
The concept of Agni Samskara, or refinement by fire, involves cooking vegetables even for just a minute to make them lighter for digestion and to help the internal heat or agni work better.
When it comes to cooking methods, Ayurveda recommends sautéing, steaming and grilling. Sautéing involves cooking food quickly in a small amount of oil or ghee, while steaming involves cooking food over boiling water. These methods help to retain the natural flavours and nutrients of the food while making it easier to digest.
By using these simple cooking methods, you can create delicious and nutritious meals that are easy on your digestive system. Stay tuned for wholesome Ayurvedic recipes that only takes 10 minutes to prepare!
