Ayurveda is reflective in its treasures and principles as antiquity goes back to vedas which are the original sources of the subject matter of Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, human life is supported by three pillars- ahara, nidra & brahmacharya.[1] The first among the three, ahara has given importance to the culinary section of Ayurveda. The Ayurvedic cuisine is designed in such a way that it provides energy not only for body, but also for mind. This dietary and lifestyle restrictions are called as pathya in broader sense.
