Cooking


Aloo Gobi (potatoes-cauliflower) & Paratha–Vegetarian/Vegan 

Ah, the cuisine of India! And the aroma of its spices! It made the Europeans salivate and their daring explorers risk their lives to find a sea route to India! That remarkable cuisine is now yours to create and enjoy through this class. 

Aloo Gobi or spiced potatoes with cauliflower is a classic versatile Indian dish. The combination of crunchy cauliflower and the sweet, moist flavor of potatoes makes this a mouthwatering side dish to either rice or bread.  

We will also be making an Indian flat bread called Paratha. It is made with whole wheat flour. You will have a choice of adding carom seeds with its thyme-like aroma or cumin seeds with their warm, earthy flavor to make this bread tasty. This bread is not only filling but healthy too!

Note: We will chop the vegetables in class. No prepping required. 

This class is limited to 8 people for an intimate experience.
