This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

We're here to spice up your weekend! Meghna selected a few small bites or heavy appetizers in her repertoire, straying away from the typical curries and stews you might have learned in her other classes at 18 Reasons. These savory, flavor-packed bites are versatile and substantial enough to become an entire meal, if you like! To accompany these bites, we will make an iconic chutney with fresh and bright herbs: cilantro and mint. To wash it all down and celebrate the upcoming warm weather, we will indulge in a fun Indian-inspired cocktail.



Paneer Tikka—Pan Seared Marinated Paneer 

Mixed Vegetable Tikki—Spicy and Tart Vegetable Sliders

Cilantro Mint Chutney

Mango Jambo Mojito—A Mango-themed Take on the Classic Mojito Cocktail
