Mouthwatering chicken tikkas or possibly melt-in-the mouth barramundi wrapped in banana leaf... stop salivating and book a class with Ajoy Joshi, award winning Indian master chef. Learn the art of Poori & South Indian vegetarian cuisine!
Ajoy begins with an introduction to the wonderful world of spices, herbs and other ingredients used in Indian cooking, followed by a discussion on the philosophy of Indian food. He then moves on to the theme/menu for the day, starting the demonstration with the basics following up with variations on the theme. The themes vary each month, ranging from regional cuisines like Goan or Hyderabadi to specialised menus like vegetarian lentils and breads or southern Indian snacks. And yes, you do get to eat the food!
Some themes include:
Mughlai Cuisine is the cuisine that comes from the kitchens of the ancient Indian aristocracy or the Moghul Emperors. It has strong influences of Muslim Cooking. Mughlai Cuisine has a distinctive aroma and taste of ground and whole spices. Mughlai cuisine is literally fit for any king or queen with its rich sauces!!
Ajoy's favourite cuisine is an amalgam of the rich, creamy and aromatic dishes from the North and the sharp, piquant and pungent flavours of the South. The result, as you will discover in the class, is a unique cuisine with dishes and sauces unlike any other.
Whoever said that vegetables can only be a side dish or an accompaniment was not familiar with the rich & proud heritage of North Indian vegetarian cuisine. Learn all about dhals and rotis or paneers and raitas to have a great vegetarian feast at home. A perfect choice for vegetarians, vegans & those who want to try non-meat meals for a change.
Run every other Saturday.
All participants also receive a 10% discount on all food items from the 'at home' service retail food outlet, on the day of the class.
