The Route to India cooking class

Indian cuisine is a reflection of the heritage of its people and many diverse regions, and is well known for its creative use of spices.  Although all Indian food is spiced, (it is the most aromatic of all cuisines), the majority of dishes are not spicy.  How to properly use spices and herbs is the secret to Indian cooking.  We will capture the fragrance and flavors of those spices to prepare Piaz Pakode (Onion Fritters), Dahi Murghi with Basmati Rice (Yogurt Braised Chicken – a lightly seasoned, velvety cream sauce glazing tender pieces of chicken), Palak Chapati (Spinach Flatbread), and other dishes.

Registration required. Stop by customer service or call 947-0191.
