About:

Remember that every preparation, when ready, must be offered to the Lord before it is tasted or smelled by anyone. The procedure for offering the prepared dishes are explained in Chapter Five. This rule of offering to the Lord shows Him our love for Him and helps us receive His benedictions.

The use of clarified butter, or ghee, is very healthy and frees us from the fear of cholesterol. The spices mentioned here are to help you digest the food properly and remove extra gas from your body. According to one's taste, salt and sugar can be reduced or increased; other basic principles of cooking and adding spices remain the same. The preparations mentioned here are thousands of years old, and are still regularly prepared and offered in India. Many of these are mentioned in the Ramayana and Mahabharat, the two oldest epic poems in the world, as well as in many other ancient Vedic texts. As it is said:

pacyantam vividhah pakah supantah payasadayah
samyava pupa-saskulyah sarva dohas ca grhyatam

(Srimad Bhagavatam, 10.24.26)

“Prepare very nice foodstuffs of all descriptions from the right combination of grains and ghee that is collected from the creation of the Lord. After preparing the rice, Dahl and Haluva, Pakora, Puri, Malapua and all kinds of milk preparations like sweet rice, sweet balls, Rasgullas and Laddus, it should be offered unto the Lord before taking personally.”

There are thousands of varieties of preparations, each tasting different, each one better than the last. Each preparation can be learned and prepared with the help of a genuine devotee. Due to a lack of space, we are presenting only a few recipes here.
