sukham ayu

sukham ayu

I was pleasantly surprised last week, when the postman delivered a copy of the sukham ayu from Pritya Publishers! It was for a Facebook contest in which Dibs, had taken part and won! I had the opportunity to go through a few pages of the beautifully designed book along with Dibs on skype. I could not put down the book until I finished reading it cover to cover. It was more like reading Upanishad and a self improvement guide rolled into one, studded with delicious recipes prepared, based on Ayurvedic principles.
Armed with their jigyasa ( thirst for knowledge ) and pratibha ( talent ) the authors have deeply delved into the ocean of Ayurveda and brought out this precious pearl of wisdom for the benefit of every individual who is striving to live a healthy and long life. sukham ayu can be considered as an Ayurveda samputam, since it illuminates the reader with a brief but rich knowledge of the ancient native Science.

The recipes are very simple and appealing to the palate.The simple methods for preparing the delicious dishes do not exceed five or six steps which can be easily followed even by a novice.
Kudos to Jigyasa Giri and Pratibha Jain for their wonderful effort in putting together this priceless cook book. It is most befitting that it has been awarded the second place for Best Health & Nutrition Cook Book In The World, by Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2009.
Congratulations and may you publish many more award winning books!

Here is Broken Wheat Kheer which I have made following the recipe in sukham ayu. This one is for Dibs for winning the invaluable book.
