Yogiji Loved to Cook

Like most Punjabis, Yogiji loved to eat. He enjoyed feeding people and never ate alone. In his presence, one could not use the expression, “I am starving”. “You are not starving”, would be his prompt retort, “you are hungry!”

Yogiji loved to cook and create his highly unusual, individualized versions of healthy cuisine. He would use everything available in the kitchen, wasn’t happy about wasting anything, and never followed a recipe! He used a lot of herbs and spices, garlic, ginger, onions, nuts – every drawer in the kitchen was opened, and practically every utensil and ladle got used. We were often hesitant to eat his concoctions because they looked different from any other food we had eaten. It invariably surprised us that it was always delicious! He served each person himself.

Your experience is important!
