Nature Nutrition and Tradition  The Vaksana Farm Cuisine – The Real Taste of India 


At Vaksana Farms, we believe that cuisine is not just about taste but also about nourishment. We strive to create dishes that are not only wholesome and delicious but also packed with nutrients.

Our approach is to use fresh, organic produce grown on our farm, ensuring that the ingredients are at their peak in terms of flavour and nutritional value. By growing our fruits, vegetables, and herbs, we have complete control over the quality and freshness of the produce, which is reflected in the taste and nutrition of our dishes.

We combine traditional cooking methods with modern culinary techniques to create dishes that are not only tasty but also retain maximum nutritional value. We use a variety of cooking methods such as steaming, roasting, and sautéing to preserve the natural goodness of the ingredients.

Moreover, our focus on sustainability extends to our cuisine. We use eco-friendly practices such as composting food waste and using organic fertilizers, ensuring that our food production is environmentally friendly.

Vaksana Farms’ recipes, including Kuzhambu, Sambar, and Avial, are not just delicious but also packed with nutrition. Here’s a look at the nutritional benefits of these traditional dishes:

Let us elaborate on a few dishes. 

Kuzhambu: Kuzhambu is a tangy South Indian gravy made with tamarind, spices, and vegetables. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The tamarind used in Kuzhambu is a good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, which help boost immunity and fight inflammation. The spices used, such as fenugreek, coriander, and cumin, are known for their digestive and anti-inflammatory properties. Vegetables like drumsticks, brinjal, and pumpkin add fibre and essential nutrients to the dish.

Sambar: Sambar is a lentil-based vegetable stew made with tamarind, spices, and a variety of vegetables. It is a complete meal as it combines lentils, vegetables, and grains (usually rice) to provide a balanced mix of protein, fibre, vitamins, and minerals. Lentils are a rich source of protein and fibre, while vegetables add vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The spices and herbs used in Sambar, such as turmeric, curry leaves, and mustard seeds, have anti-inflammatory and digestive properties.

Avial: Avial is a mixed vegetable curry made with coconut, yoghurt, and a variety of vegetables. It is rich in fibre, vitamins, and minerals. The coconut used in Avial provides healthy fats and adds a rich, creamy texture to the dish. Yoghurt adds probiotics, which are beneficial for gut health. The vegetables used in Avial, such as carrots, beans, and drumsticks, are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Overall, these traditional recipes from Vaksana Farms are not only delicious but also nutritious, providing a wholesome meal that is good for both the body and the soul.
