Ayurvedic Vata Churna

churanThis is a recipe for a Vata Balancing spice mix, used in AyurVedic cooking. I make this churna in small batches and use it often in all my root veggie dishes and in soups as well. This spice powder has a robust deep flavor which perks up the dish and it tastes extra yummy when your vata is imbalanced. The specific spices used in this churna balance the vata dosha.


  • 2 tablespoons whole fennel seeds.
  • 1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds.
  • 1 tablespoon whole cumin seeds.
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric.
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil.
  • 2 teaspoons powdered ginger.
  • 2 teaspoons salt.
  • 1 teaspoon asafetida (hing)

Store in a glass jar and it will stay fresh for up to a month.

"Diet has the distinction of being the only major determinant of health that is completely under your control. You have the final say over what does and what does not go into your mouth and stomach. You cannot always control the other determinants of health, such as the quality of the air you breathe, the noise you are subjected to, or the emotional climate of your suroundings, but you can control what you eat. It is a shame to squander such a good opportunity to influence your health." ~Andrew Weil, MD
