In the premiere episode of Family Food, we head to Swagath Gourmet, a South Indian restaurant run by the Iyengar family in Edison, New Jersey. We meet brothers Sesha and Murali as well as Murali's wife Padma, who all share a passion for bringing authentic South Indian food to the table. The lentil- and rice-based vegetarian dishes that have made Swagath a local favorite are not only delicious, but also extremely healthy.

After spending time with the Iyengars in their restaurant and their tight-knit community of Edison, we see it's no coincidence that the word "swagath" means "welcome" in their native tongue. The minute you walk into Swagath, you feel like a part of the family.
