Taste, Ties, Types and Traditions

Sattvik – the festival to celebrate traditional food was started thirteen years ago to promote conservation of agro-biodiversity and creation of demand for nutritional crops, which are rarely or less cultivated now. The paradox of development is such that nutritious food is still consumed in the most under-developed areas and by poorer segments of society. This festival aspires to bring the lesser known but nutrient-rich food from these areas to the urban populace, helping them to adopt healthier food habits and lifestyle. The festival also hopes to encourage the farmers to grow such crops and augment their incomes. Thus, we seek your presence and participation in the event.

The following events will be part of the Sattvik:

  1. Farmers’ fair of organic and eco-friendly agro- products
  2. Competitions highlighting children’s creativity and biodiversity knowledge
  3. Exhibition of Grassroots Innovations
  4. Crafts, Pottery, Folk Dance and Songs

Objectives of the “Sattvik – Traditional Food Festival”

  1. To provide a platform for popularizing traditional culinary made using forgotten crop varieties like Kodra (Paspalumscrobiculatum), Bavta (Elusinecoracana), Nagli (Elusinecoracana), Samo (Echinocloacolonum), Jowar (Sorghum vulgare), Bajri (Pennisetumglaucum), ragi (millet) and maize (Zeamays) and to reconstitute the taste and nutritional value among the urban people with a vision to conserve and raise the demand of such lesser known varieties.
  2. To popularize the use of unknown/uncultivated plants and vegetables which are not being consumed by people due to ignorance about their nutritional value and to prepare varieties of delicious dishes from such unnoticed plants.
  3. To generate a renewed interest in conservation of indigenous, local and rare varieties of seeds by organizing exhibition of such seeds and sale of such seeds. Sattvik aims to provide a platform for conservation the biodiversity of local seeds.
  4. To organize an exhibition to help creative rural grassroots innovators and students.
  5. To popularize folk-lore, folk-songs, folk-tales, art and forgotten traditional musical instruments.
  6. To extend the support to organic farmers for increasing interactions among themselves and to help them in selling their organic products directly to the consumers (sale of items like minor millets, grains, pulses, spices, vegetables, cow ghee, sesame oil, different types of roots and chemical free jaggery etc.).

Join us to conserve the depleting agro-biodiversity!

Every year, SRISTI strives to make the food even healthier. This year the use of maida and cotton seed oil is prohibited. The use of plastic has also been prohibited. This time we have gone a step ahead and set up a 10 cubic meter flexible bio-gas plant at the festival site. All the waste collected during the festival will be converted to bio-gas and will be put to good use instead of being dumped at garbage disposal sites.

There are 144 stalls this year. Some of the traditional recipes which you can relish in this year’s festival are:

 Bengali Ghughni, Nagli Raab, Oats and Flax Seed Chilla, Mushroom Paratha, Litti Chokha, Maduwa Pittha, Gundli Kheer, Bara Gulla, Sati ki Kadhi, Kersangri curry, Black rice kheer, Bittergourd dumplings, Varieties made of Ragi (laddus, rotlas, South Indian delicacies), Bavta Laddus, Aloe Vera Flower Curry, Kodo Millet delicacies, Innovative Matla Undhiyu, Drumstick Thepla, Variety of Amla Products and delicacies, Maize Wrap, Parsi delicacies, Mung Dal ki Kheer, Nutritious Sattvik and Natural Drinks and many more such traditional recipes from Jammu & Kashmir, Orissa, Manipur, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu etc. Other delicacies like Findala ice-cream from Lokmitra organization of Dheduki, Banana stem kachori and Pan milk shake from West Bengal, Sati ki Kadhi and Gudiyani from Haryana, Jewish recipes, Pongal from Tamil Nadu, Madhuwa pitha and Idsha from Jharkhand, Ragi tea from Odisha, Singju and Kingchilly with pickle from Manipur and Kang Sheera from Himachal Pradesh will also be  served at Sattvik.

This year, the Khedut Haat has been split in two parts. A separate stage has been set up for sellers of organic produce verified by SRISTI. SRISTI and HBN volunteers along with other local NGOs have verified the farms from where this produce is sourced at the preharvest stage. They have ensured that the farmer has grown organic food for the three years and that runoffs from the neighbouring farms do not pass through the farm being verified. A group will be selling camel and sheep milk.

 Sattvik provides a platform for social entrepreneurs and provides them space free of cost so that they can share their vision and ideologies with the visitors.  There are also various activities planned for children during Sattvik that showcases traditional themes.

Inspired by ancient Indian wisdom and Sattvik- traditional food festival (organised by SRISTI), a group of scientists working at ISRO-Ahmedabad organised “SATVIK- Aaharostavam-II” on 24th January 2013. This was first organised in 2011 by them to promote healthy eating habits amongst their community members. During the festival, an exhibition on “Science behind Satvik food” reflecting food science, nutritive values, digestion and difference between Tamasik- Rajasik-Satwik foods was put up.  The theme was five elements of Nature (earth, water, sky, air and fire), three Prakritis of Nature (Kaff, Pitta, Vata), Nadi and Nature. The event was inaugurated with a prayer (Mental food first) and ended with buttermilk.

Taste, Ties, Types and Traditions

The festival was started nine years ago for conservation of agro-biodiversity and creating demand for crops which are rarely cultivated. The paradox of development is such that nutritious food is still in the most under-developed areas. This festival endeavours to bring such lesser known but nutrient rich food to the urban population, helping them to adopt healthier food habits and lifestyles. We incentivize the farmers to grow such crops by adding to their income. This in turn would help in conserving the depleting agro-biodiversity.

A Traditional Taste Ride….

The annual recipe competition was held on 18th December 2012 at the SRISTI office. Around 55 participants and more than 160 recipes were showcased in this competition. “Sattvik”, meaning pure or balanced, has been organized every year since 2004 and has on occasions seen more than 200 participants.

Many of the participants were participating in this competition for the first time. The competition yielded a rich harvest of traditional dishes such as multigrain rotlamakai ni potli (sweet made from American corn), patra, makke ka kees, ragi noodles, ragi cake, farali cake (cake made from buckwheat and water chestnut flour), mukhwaas, tea with coconut milk, jackfruit seed parathas, aloe vera dal, winter khichdi (contains ingredients such as garlic, cinnamon, chillies, ginger etc to keep the body warm in winter), multigrain sweets, yam handwa, sprouts bhel, red rice khichdi, multigrain pizza, kidney beans and beans kebab, jowar and bajra soups, mix leaves soup, multigrain khichdi, flax seed sweets and mathris, water chestnut cutlets, sukhdi (sweet), buckwheat and water chestnut handwaragi and dates rolls, kodri, mint and curry leavesidlis etc.  Many contestants seemed to have experimented with minor millets and uncultivated plants, creating delicious traditional and modern dishes out of them.  Not only was the food tasty, but the contestants impressed the judges with a stunning display of food art. Food aesthetics was a major attraction and an important criterion in the recipe competition. One such entry was the multigrain steak kebab which displayed information in a very creative manner. It mentioned the serving size, the ingredients involved and the nutritional benefits of the food. Enthusiasm was in the air and people were very keen to know about SRISTI and its activities. Later on, upamawas served to the participants, thus, promoting healthy and tasty snacks instead of fried ones. The competition was judged by Ms. Ambarben Trivedi, Head of the Food and Nutrition Department, N.C. Bodiwala Home Science College, Ahmedabad and Mrs Sadhana Gupta,  Assoc. Editor, Sujh Bujh newsletter. Results of the competition will be out on 29th December 2012.
