In the ancient Eastern practice of Ayurveda, people are defined by their unique blend of the three doshas - vata, pitta and kapha. This personal make-up is known as your constitution or prakriti.

Churnas are dosha-specific spice mixes used to flavour food and encourage inner balance and harmony.

Here we share a basic recipe for each dosha, which may then be adjusted to taste and individual doshic composition. Try to add to your meals as often as possible.

For more information on each dosha, have a read of our previous articles on vata, pitta, and kapha.
