Cooking and Eating Workshop: Poha with Seasonal Vegetables with Vidya Chapman *

Mon, May 23

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM Eastern Time

Tuition: $20

Kapha, the predominant dosha (energy) in springtime, has more heavy, cold and liquid qualities. One Ayurvedic principle is that “like increases like” and opposites “decrease” those same qualities. Poha is a light, uncooked, flattened basmati rice. It is gluten free, rich in iron, easy to digest and makes a perfect tri-doshic dish.

Join Vidya as she shows how to make this quick and simple, delicious dish.

Registrants will be sent a short shopping list of ingredients.

The class will be live online on Zoom and will be recorded. All registrants will receive a copy of the class recording.
