Recipe Stories is an ongoing series on our blog where we introduce you to to yogis and ayurveds from all backgrounds and we ask them to do one thing: Tell us a story through a recipe. This series supports our eBook called Late Summer & Early Autumn Recipe Stories.


A few years back I was spending a week living on Kitchari. You know, that wonderful homey-tasting Ayurvedic concoction that we often live on for periods of time throughout the year….or for sure the meal of choice while we transition from season to season… And I wanted to add a side condiment that would compliment my kitchari….I was living in Mexico at the time and guavas and mangoes are readily available. So, I searched and searched and found some recipes online and adapted them to follow the six tastes based on available ingredients. I am back in Dallas now and recently got a craving for those beautiful chutneys again…But where can one find Guavas? Good Mangoes? Guess where? The ethnic markets! I found the most beautiful aromatic and delicious guavas and mangos at our local Mexican market. The fun thing about chutneys is you can choose the fruits you like and just adapt accordingly. Add apple when they are in season. Pineapple too! Try mixing fruits, changing the nut varieties etc. Create your own personalized recipe… I hope you enjoy these recipes and while you are savoring every delicious bite….notice the sweet, the salty, the sour, the bitter, the astringent and the pungent… because you are most certainly getting them ALL.
