3 hour class
I will be teaching the below menu on Saturday, 16th March:
- Pindi Chole (White chickpeas cooked in an assortment of powdered spices, fresh ginger & green chillies)
- Palak Paneer (Fresh paneer cooked in a spiced spinach gravy)
- Jeera Matar Rice (Basmati rice cooked with cumin, onions & peas)
- Cucumber Mint Raita (Raita's are flavoured yogurt)
Vegetarian food is at the heart of Indian cuisine and offers a huge variety to choose from. In this class you will learn to create a delicious vegetarian menu using a range of ingredients such as lentils, pulses, various vegetables, rice, paneer (Indian cottage cheese) etc.
The dishes taught in these classes vary considering ingredients and food that is generally available and consumed during different times of the year. The menu typically includes two vegetarian dishes along with rice and accompaniments (raita or chutney). In addition to cooking these classic recipes, you will also learn about the history, traditions and stories behind these dishes.
As part of this experience, you will gain valuable tips to set up your own little Indian kitchen and preparing basics such as spice blends, pastes etc to make your life easier when cooking Indian food. We also spend time discussing and going through my spice pantry which will leave you with a greater understanding of the application and benefits of various spices used every day in Indian cooking.
My classes are hands-on, fun and sociable. We will start the day with a cup of masala chai or lassi while discussing the menu. You will then roll up your sleeves and get stuck in preparing the dishes after which we will sit down together and enjoy the food you’ve cooked, or you can take food home if you prefer.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.
