So far, I have hosted guests from around the world (over 25 countries). I have celebrated birthdays with them, shared beautiful conversations and unforgettable moments with them. I can accommodate all dietary requirements (vegetarian, gluten free, etc.) It will be a small group, so we will all do the cooking together. It will be interactive, rather than demonstrative. - We will start with ‘Garam Masala’. And no, it’s not just “curry powder”. It’s the basis of understanding individual spices. I will teach you how to blend them to *your* taste. You will all get to grind your own blend! - Quick demonstration of making homemade yoghurt, paneer or ghee (its much cheaper than buying it off the shelf AND IT IS MAGIC) - A basic (yet full of flavour) curry lesson, and here I will teach you how this basic recipe can turn from a healthy weekday meal into a weekend feast. - I will show you a magic trick of how to make amazing rice. - We will feast on what we cook YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE A HANDOUT OF THE DAY’S LESSONS. Remember, this is all about learning that we Indians do eat Indian food regularly, so it’s obviously not as complicated as you think it is.
I have lived, cooked and eaten in India for 18 years of my life. Of course I do not pretend to know every recipe in a country of 29 states, 22 (official) languages and a similar range of cuisines. But I do know techniques that will teach you what Indian home-cooking is all about. It can be a feast if you want it to be one. It can be a 30-minute easy meal if you want. I have a repertoire of hundreds of ancient and contemporary recipes that will make you realise, curry is not where we stop. ;) Qualification? Does winning hearts with feeding friends and family count?
Whatever we cook
Stove Stove, microwave, oven
ONLY 2 STOPS AWAY FROM KING'S CROSS STATION! We will meet at my place. Why? Because it’s all about Indian HOMEcooking. Not about becoming a restaurant chef. I want it to be homely and realistic. I want to show you my spice rack and that I actually use every technique I show you.
