4-Week Indian Cooking

This set of 4 classes is designed to give the participants a very good grounding in Indian cooking. We discuss spices and give you the confidence to use spices without fear. Method is important and we work with best practice when cooking Indian food.

Week 1 : We start gently with a simple starter, cooking – SPICY POTATO CAKE & A TOMATO CHUTNEY

Week 2 : This is more intense. We cook a classic Chicken Curry & Pillau Rice - Vegetarians can use chickpeas to the same effect.

Week 3 : We go vegetarian with Paneer & Spinach and Aloo Muttar. Both classic dishes.

Week 4 : We finish with a simple baked (or fried) fish with chips :) and on a sweet note, we make banana fritters, a family tea-time favourite

South Indian Cooking Day

The South of India is covered wall-to-wall with coconut trees. Every part of the fruit and the tree is used and it is in the daily diet of the region, both in the East and the West of the country.

We will make a simple coconut rice with curry leaves, grated fresh coconut and a few spices. This dish can be eaten on its' own with a simple chutney. However we will make fish molee, which is flavoured with herbs, green chilli and... you guessed it... coconut milk.

North Indian Cooking Day

The North of India is grassland where traditionally livestock was reared, so we get lots of cream, yoghurt, butter and ghee recipes indigenous to that area. We wil be cooking Butter Chicken and a simple naan bread.

 

Chicken or Veg Korma & Bhajji - Learn to make a 'real' korma.

 

Mushroom & Spinach & Stuffed Paratha - A delicious vegetarian option and that most wonderful of flat breads... the stuffed paratha.

 

Chaat & Chutneey - All things chaat. So simple you will wonder where the umami is coming from!

 

Baked Fish & Bombay Potato - A whole baked fishwith spices served with spiced Bombay Potato.

Black Pepper Day

Black pepper is the most important spice of India and was the original source of heat before chilies came along. We will be cooking a a Black Pepper Beef (or chicken) and a very special Cauliflower with black pepper.


Who doesn't like Chilli Prawns
