Ma Indian Cooking Class 2013
Traditional Home-Style Indian
Embark on a Traditional Indian culinary journey and learn how to create a magnificent home-style feast. Begin with crunchy pappadums and work your way through a wholesome Dal - slow cooked lentils seasoned with spicy caramelised onion, followed by colourful vegetables stir-fried with aromatic spices, and of course the dish deemed fit even for kings - Shahi Paneer, the original vegetarian "butter chicken". Team these delights with fragrant basmati rice, hot Roti bread and fresh yoghurt raita, and you have a mouth-watering banquet. Top this feast off with a steaming pot of aromatic masala chai and receive your very own spice starter kit to complete your Traditional Home-Style Indian Journey.
Exotic North Indian (Punjabi)
Allow your senses to be tantalized as you learn to master the classic favourites of Northern India. Start with irresistibly crispy battered spinach dumplings and follow this with Punjabi chole - butter soft curried chickpeas, spiced pumpkin and the all time favourite Gobhi aaloo - potatoes and cauliflower stir-fried with cumin, spices and coriander. Mop up these culinary delights with cumin infused basmati rice, golden puffed poori bread and of course - a deliciously tangy mint chutney. After cooking up this exotic feast, enjoy as you cool down with a refreshing cardamom and rose infused sweet lassi drink.
South Indian Cuisine
Immerse yourself in the wonders of Southern India as you learn to cook and savour their delicious and diverse cookery. The journey begins with learning to create perfectly crisp lentil dumplings accompanied by a refreshing coconut chutney. Following these tasty treats master the art of creating sublime lemon rice, creamy coconut mixed vegetables, hot & sour 'Sambar' dal and South India's famous Dosa - crispy rice pancakes stuffed with masala potato. At the end of the class, the day's sublime aromas and flavours of curry leaves, spices, fresh coconut and mustard seeds will be beautifully complemented with a sweet coconut burfi.
Mughlai feasts were originally prepared to cater to the fine palates of the Indian emperors during the Mughal era. In this all time favourite class, along with mastering the skilled art of cooking a magnificent mughlai banquet you will also dine like royalty. Sizzling tandoori vegetable skewers are beautifully complemented with tangy yoghurt mint chutney. Follow this with ricotta cheese cooked through spiced spinach (palak paneer), slow-cooked seasoned black lentils, and a royal 'Malai Kofta' - spiced cottage cheese koftas immersed in a rich and creamy tomato and cashew nut sauce. Pair these lavish mains with oven fresh naan bread, fragrant pulao rice and pickled spanish onions, and you have a truly mouth-watering feast. Afterwards, sweeten the delicious flavours of the day with a cool kulfi - traditional Indian ice-cream infused with saffron and pistachio nuts.
