The driving principle behind the Karma - Conscious Cafe & Eatery is the importance of doing good deeds (karma). We believe what goes around comes around. We bring this belief into The Karma everyday. Since we have an opportunity to nourish people, we want to take it a step further by giving back in form of charity and donations from everything we sell. The Karma will be contributing 3% of our revenues through purchase and donations to the Food Bank over the next 3 months.

Khichdi is a wholesome meal that has the perfect balance of nutrients. The combination of rice, lentils and ghee provides you with carbohydrates, proteins, dietary fibre, Vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium. Many people also add vegetables to it enhance its nutritional value.
Easy to digest
Khichdi soothes the stomach and the intestines, making it the perfect meal for when you're sick, but also a good change from food that is loaded with spices. It is also a healthy option for babies and elderly people, since it is both soft and nutritious.
Tridoshic food Khichdi is a staple food of the Ayurvedic diet, as it has the ability to balance all the three doshas - Vatta, Pitta and Kapha, making it a tridoshic food. Apart from calming the body and detoxifying it, the ingredients in khichdi also have the perfect balance of the basic elements required to improve energy, immunity and digestion.
Gluten-free & Vegan
People who are avoiding gluten either out of choice or necessity can safely eat khichdi, since rice doesn't contain gluten.
