Guru Sri Subramanium really loved cooking. He brought great mindfulness and care to everything he did, and cooking was no exception.

The Skanda Vale Cookbook app brings together the very best of Guru’s recipes, plus some favourites from the Skanda Vale kitchen and some Western dishes from our seva project, Skanda Vale Hospice.

Our sincere gratitude and thanks to Richard Fairall for testing each recipe and developing this app.

All proceeds from the sale of this app are donated to Skanda Vale Hospice, enabling us to provide free care for people with life limiting illnesses.

Customise
  • Each recipe can be edited so you can adjust the quantities to suit your taste.

Organise
  • All the recipes are organised into three booklets; ‘Guruji’s Favourites’, ‘Skanda Vale Kitchen’ and ‘Hospice Recipes’.
