Cornbread recipe

Submitted by dave on Tue, 09/29/2009 - 7:33pm

It has been a long time since I shared a recipe on My last recipe was Ayurvedic Pizza. Today I made cornbread for the first time in my adult life. As usual, I created my own recipe and gave it an Ayurvedic slant.

ayurvedic corn bread


  • 2 1/3 cups organic whole corn flour
  • 1 cup organic garbonzo bean flour
  • 2 tsp Bob's Red Mill baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp dried cilantro (organic)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (organic)
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder (organic)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder (organic)
  • pinch nutmeg (organic)
  • handful of corn kernels (non-GMO, freeze dried, soaked in water 5 minutes)
  • 3 TBSP sucanat (organic)
  • 3 TBSP ghee (Ancient Organics, traditional Vedic process)
  • 2 free range organic eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup whole non-homogenized milk (Natural By Nature brand)
  • 1/4 cup filtered water
  • lime juice

I do not consider this a pure Ayurvedic recipe, in part, because I combined eggs and milk together. Eggs and milk are a food combination that should be avoided, according to Ayurveda. Next time I make this, I will leave out the eggs. I may also try a few other changes to make the recipe more true to Ayurveda.
