In the ancient Indian practice of ayurveda, there is a special term for eating seasonally: ritucharya. The concept of ritucharya is about what to eat during each season to maintain health and prevent disease. Besides the health benefits you can gain by eating seasonal foods, the other advantages are that they typically taste better, are cheaper and better for the environment as well. Hricha Saraf, Recipe Curator & Partner at Bol Gappa gives us two winter recipes from the new winter menu at Bol Gappa restaurant.
