Besides, you can make this recipe gluten-free by using rice or corn flour-based pasta or a protein-rich version like lentil pasta, according to your preferences.

The most important ingredient in the recipe is mushrooms, which have heavy, warming, and grounding qualities. Mushrooms are considered tamasic, known for their calming and grounding effects.

Food energetics in Ayurveda rajasic and tamasic, refer to food items ability to stimulate or calm the body and mind. We need both of these energies to carry out our lives. Rajas equals action, tamas equals inaction.

When an organism performs activities and rest in harmony it is said to be in a sattvic state, the third dimension of the energetics.

Sattva is a given, inherent quality to all plants and animals, except humans. Sattva is a positive energetic stamp on rajasic and tamasic foods. Fresh, organic, local, and seasonal foods that have grown mature in their natural habitat contain it. This also should be in our guideline for choosing the healthy fruits and vegetables for us.

Recommendations for doshas
Vata: Mushrooms are considered heavy for the digestive system and should be consumed in moderation. Preferably as lunch and together with spices that stimulate Agni (digestive fire). Pasta and nuts are a good choice for Vata Type. Especially in the winter, this dish can be comforting and grounding.
Pitta: This is an appropriate dish for lunch. Remove the garlic and use a mild curry instead of a spicy one.
Kapha: This dish could be cooked with gluten-free pasta or lentil pasta to avoid the heaviness. Using garlic and hot spices is very useful for Kapha and creates a balanced meal for this dosha as well. Eating a fresh salad with bitter herbs like chicory or arugula is also beneficial for Kapha.
This recommendation is only for lunch. Raw food should generally be avoided in the evening, according to Ayurveda teachings.
