Basic Cooking Ingredients

The Hare Krsna Cookbook
Chapter One

Basic Cooking Ingredients

In the Vedic scriptures it is stated that the Supreme Lord has provided ample varieties of food-stuffs for all living creatures and that one should take only that which is allotted to him by the Lord, not more. For Humanity the Lord has set aside simple foods such as grains, vegetables, fruit and milk products and He has requested that we offer Him such pure and nourishing foods. In this way, there are hundred and thousands of palatable dishes that may be prepared and then offered to Lord Krishna.

Listed below are some of the ingredients most commonly used in preparing Krsna prasadam.

white flour (unbleached if available)
whole mung beans *
chick-pea flour, somtimes called besan or gram flour *
whole chick-peas
yellow split peas
split, cleaned urad dahl *
split, claned mung dahl *
powdered milk
almonds (raw and shelled)
walnuts (raw and shelled)
peanuts (raw and shelled)
white rice flour *
sugar

Most of these ingredients are readily abailable from regular grocery stores. The items marked was asterisks would more likely be found at Chinese food stores or Indian specialty stores.

Note; There are of course many more key ingredients, but it is our humble attempt to present “The Hare Krsna Cookbook” the way it was written back in 1973. Next post will be on Spices, which are the jewels of cooking for Krsna.
