Our Way

In the world of Ayurveda, the essence of good health lies in the freshness and balance of what we consume. This wisdom, passed down from our beloved grandma's, is the guiding principle behind our mission. At The Dancing Elephant, we strive to bring you the wholesome goodness of balanced pre-mix meals that are as easy to prepare as they are nourishing. Ready to cook and eat in approx. 15 minutes, our meals offer a healthier, more wholesome alternative. A warm bowl of our kitchari is not just a meal; it's a complete nutritional experience that can serve as a satisfying snack or a flavorful side dish to complement a healthy protein like fish or chicken.

Moreover, our kitchari is not only a high-protein, complete vegan meal but also serves as a great source of vegan starch for those seeking a balanced and nutritious dietary option.

Our Kitcharis

Our Combo: Grain & Legume

The foundation of our Kitchari lies in the harmonious blend of grains and legumes. Our choice of rice or quinoa combined with split yellow Moong lentils is no accident. In the vast universe of grains and legumes, we've chosen these specific ingredients for their lightness and easy digestibility. This combination ensures that our Kitchari is not only delicious but also gentle on your tummy, making it a perfect meal for any time of the day.

Heaping In the Herbs & Veggies

What's a meal without the vibrant flavors and nutritional boost of herbs and vegetables? At The Dancing Elephant, we believe in the power of these natural wonders. Our unique combinations, inspired by the wisdom of our Grandmas, are designed to bring exciting flavors to the humble and comforting kitchari.

Imagine the hearty goodness of butternut squash, paired with the exotic aroma of lime-scented makrut leaves and the creamy richness of coconut. Or the cooling properties of spinach, carrying the traditional Indian flavors that make your taste buds dance. And let's not forget the humble peas, transformed into a flavor powerhouse with the punchy South Indian curry leaf and coconut flavors. Each ingredient is carefully chosen to create a symphony of flavors that not only delights your palate but also nourishes your body.

Tempering Spices

Our Kitcharis would be incomplete without the savory and warming qualities of spices. These aromatic wonders are the soul of our meals, infusing the grains and legumes with unique and signature blends of flavors and floral notes. Our grandmas knew that the right spices were the secret to food alchemy, a wisdom that we carry forward in our recipes.

At The Dancing Elephant, we believe in the power of Ayurveda to nourish the body, mind, and soul. Our Kitcharis are not just meals; they are a celebration of this ancient wisdom, a testament to the healing power of food, and a tribute to our Grandmas who taught us the art of cooking with love and intention. Join us on this journey of health and wellness, and discover the joy of eating fresh, balanced, and delicious meals.
