Product Description


In front of me is a new vegetarian cookbook: The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook. Ayurvedic is a big word that may turn casual readers away, but for serious foodies seeking soothing and healing recipes, vegans and those who are into holistic health, this one works.... It's a friendly cookbook that anyone can use and appreciate, including those who just enjoy cooking and those who simply love Indian vegetarian cuisine.
-The Dining Out Guide (The Dining Out Guide)

I am pleased that Amrita Sondhi has written such a wonderful book! Not only as a cookbook, but also as a valuable resource and as a comprehensive introduction to the profound health science of Ayurveda, I heartily recommend this book! The recipes are tasty and easy to prepare, and the appendices offer important information on yoga-asana, aromatherapy, color therapy, and detailed menu plans, making it one of the most user friendly books about Ayurveda I know.
-Frank Jude Boccio, Ayurvedic Practitioner and author of Mindfulness Yoga: The Awakened Union of Breath, Body and Mind (Frank Jude Boccio)

The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook will make a welcome and impressive addition to personal and community cookbook collections.
-Midwest Book Review (Midwest Book Review)

Includes a cornucopia of nourishing recipes that are in tune with nature and one's body.
-Vancouver Sun (Vancouver Sun)

Full of accessible and delicious recipes inspired by Amrita's circle of friends and family.
-Shared Vision (Shared Vision 2007-05-01)

This cookbook provides a wide-ranging survey of accessible vegetarian cooking, with some more challenging fusion fare.
-North Shore News (North Vancouver, BC) (North Shore News 2007-07-01)

The Modern Ayurvedic Cookbook offers more than 200 vegetarian recipes rooted in Ayurveda's nutritional principles.... [Amrita's] meals are also just plain tasty.
-Georgia Straight (Georgia Straight 2007-07-12)

Offers easy, veg-friendly recipes.... Try the Spicy Chickpea Soup with coconut, cilantro and yogurt.
-Curve (Curve 2007-07-24)

What a delightful, delicious book this is. A book designed for truly nourishing your individual bodies and ensuring that everyone you cook for leaves the table feeling good, centred, and as Amrita says, "joyful."
-Cahoots Magazine (Cahoots 2010-02-01)

Format: Paperback
This is a great Ayurvedic cookbook for westerners. All of the recipes I have tried from this book, are tasty & easy to prepare. Many of the recipes will make a "westernized" palate very happy. There are recipes for breakfasts, appetizers/snacks, entrees, soups, baked goods, condiments, etc.. The book gives easy to follow tips to adjust the recipe to your "dosha" type. The layout of the book is very clear and easy to understand. Whether you are a new or an experienced Ayurvedic cook, you will love the recipes in this delicious book. This book is a keeper!

Format: Paperback
What an excellent cookbook. I'm a Master Herbalist and loved reading the ancient art of healing using Indian spices. The recipes are simple, delicious and easy to follow. I thoroughly enjoyed reading and learning how to balance one's dosha through nutritious healthy meals. I received my book yesterday and immediately tried the rice pudding recipe; it had a wonderful subtle fragrance of cardamon/cinnamon, it was the best rice pudding I had ever made. We live in Campbell River, not far from Bowen Island where Amrita resides. Thank you Amrita for writing this excellent cookbook. Diane
