Kitchen or ‘Rasoi’ as commonly referred to India is not the only place of cooking but also treated as a sacred place in our homes. It’s a heart of Home. Kitchens in India are the best-known place for ‘Maa ke haath ka khaana’ are not only restricted to cooking and serving meals but also symbolizes health, hygiene, nutrition, harmony, wealth, prosperity and not to miss different tempting flavors.
Traditionally, people in both Urban and Rural areas were very particular about the small details of materials used for designing the Kitchens to the colors used inside, to the materials of utensils used for cooking, maintaining the proper hygiene, taking care of the health of each and every individual of the house.
Initially, people use more of natural man-made products like wood, clay pot, grindstone, etc., which not only brings natural flavor to the food but also had scientific health benefits behind using them. Not only the materials and products but also sitting on the floor cross-legged and relishing the food by using the fingers and using no cutlery also hold very strong scientific health benefits behind.
When Britishers invaded India, they brought a lot of changes to our architecture, lifestyles, eating habits and etc. Urban peoples took their lifestyles promptly as compared to Rural ones.
All our heavy utensils which include Gold, Silver, Copper, Brass, and Iron were replaced with Steel,
Aluminum and Plastics. Our forefathers knew the health benefits of eating and cooking the meals in heavy and good metals which got destroyed by the Britishers which are still following by the Indians.
Each utensil whether big or small has its importance in cooking a particular dish. The real taste comes from the work made of Iron or Brass, use of Grindstones in making some tangy or spicy sauces or using of the mortal pestle, clay ovens and ancient ways of cooking.
The clitter – clatter or rattling sounds of the ladle in the work is common acoustics in our Indian Kitchens, but nowadays our Kitchen has much more Non-Stick Cookwares or Steel Cookwares. Our Mothers and Grandmothers were used to cook chapattis on flames but now it has replaced by Roti Makers, Induction Cookers and Microwave. We are using more of Bone China Crockeries or Glass/Crystal Wares rather than any of the heavy metal.
In healthy times we have our Organic Kitchens in soft natural color tints like pastel yellows, orange, beige and white which as per Vastu norms creates the healthy atmosphere in the Kitchen for every individual of the house.
Now even Doctors and Medical Journals are recommending being Organic and using more of traditional cookware and utensils as it fortifies the food with minerals present in heavy metals which are so essential for our bodies. This feels like we are going back to our roots which were considered by our values.
We should consider following Vastu Science while designing the Kitchen for the betterment of our lives especially the choice of colors as it plays a very pivotal role in our lives.
