Herbs-Treat and Taste


Before the Industrial Revolution, people all over the world knew about herbs; their healing properties; how to combine them to make tasty food; and how to prevent certain ailments. In the Indian subcontinent, at least one member of each extended family knows this lore. This has been passed on from generation to generation and has been modified over time so that it has kept up to date with the world and its technologies. If you wish to share in this knowledge, and go back to your roots, then this site is for you.
We can explain how to recognize herbs; which can be grown in pots indoors and out; which prefer more space and need a garden and which should be used to cure common ailments such as colds and flu. You can also learn how to ward off unforeseen illnesses. We believe that prevention is better than cure. We don’t, however, believe that the food you serve should be boring and bland. Our recipes, while being healthy, are not for ascetics.
On this site you will find some interesting snippets about herbs, spices and the other foodstuffs we use in our recipes, as well as some general advice about what to cook in different seasons. We encourage you to create your own recipes, adapting some of ours to suit your tastes and using the food that is readily available where you live.
Often we just add ingredients to our cooking without giving a thought to their properties; they just taste good. However each one has its own health value; for example, onions, garlic, ginger, coriander, mint, are ingredients we use almost every day, without thinking about their values. You can find this information on our site.
