Cooking and Eating Workshop: Vegetable Subji with Saffron Rice and Date Chutney with Vidya Chapman *

Mon, Jun 20

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM Eastern Time

Tuition: $20

Ayurveda views each person as a microcosm in the macrocosm, where each one of us is a part of this living organism called the universe. As we try to maintain inner harmony moving into the summer solstice, the hot, sharp, bright qualities of fire that are the aspects of Pitta dosha can throw us off balance. These changes influence our bodies, minds and senses.

Join Vidya as she teaches how to make a cooling Indian dish using seasonal vegetables along
with saffron rice and delicious date chutney.

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.
