He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science and an MBA in finance. After immigrating to the U.S. in 1994, he worked in the tech and finance sectors until 2008 when, inspired by family values and a strong calling to continue his family’s tradition, he and his wife, Nalini, opened the doors to Pure Indian Foods which is now one of the most respected and trusted organic, grass-fed ghee companies in North America. 

Sandeep is a graduate of David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies where he learned the use of three hundred medicinal herbs from the healing traditions of Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine and European and Native American cultures. His life-long respect for ancient wisdom and culture along with his desire to keep his family healthy eventually led him to The Weston A. Price Foundation where he has been a chapter leader for the past eleven years. 

As an herbalist and a naturalist, Sandeep cares deeply about the preservation of medicinal/ayurvedic herbs. He has taught and lectured at symposiums in the U.S., India and South Korea and is currently serving as the New Jersey Food Processors Association director. He enjoys hiking, running marathons, outdoor cooking, gardening, riding his motorcycle, tree-climbing and yoga. He’s well-loved by his staff for his endless jokes, riddles, fables and stories. Sandeep lives in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, with Nalini and their two kids.



The Weston A. Price Foundation honors the wise and nourishing traditions of indigenous people from around the world. Many such cherished traditions live at the heart of India, dating back thousands of years. One long-standing culinary tradition is the preparation of Kitchari, India’s most beloved comfort-food, traditionally prepared with basmati rice and split mung dal, medicinal colorful spices, and buttery-golden ghee. Kitchari is a centuries old, time-honored dish revered for its cleansing, detoxifying, healing and nourishing qualities that are appropriate for people of all ages and constitutional types.


In this cooking demonstration, Sandeep Agarwal, long-time chapter leader and co-owner of Pure Indian Foods will show you how to make the perfect bowl of Kitchari. Come prepared to learn about India’s ancient, wise tradition of preparing Kitchari while sampling this delicious, nutritious “super-food”.
