Join Simran and Stacie for an introduction to Gujarati cuisine of Western India. We’ll cook a quartet of spiced vegetarian dishes that are wonderfully healthful and easy to cook, making them a wonderful addition to your everyday cooking repertoire. We’ll also make a simple roti, and several side dishes to complement the meal we will enjoy together at the end of class. Along the way we’ll cover Indian spices and pantry basics as well as core techniques that will help you take your Indian cooking to the next level!
