This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our registration policies here

Summer is winding down and school is starting up again. Let's get back into weeknight cooking that comforts, nourishes, and makes for delicious leftovers for busy days. Even as the temps warm up in the Bay Area (called seasonal lag), we think it's the right time to cook up some curries with Meghna! Spices that warm you up and make you sweat are very effective at cooling you down, so regardless the weather where you live, cook with us!



Navrattan Korma—A medley of vegetables cooked in tomatoes and onions and finished with cream or coconut milk

Chicken Curry—A quintessential Indian classic curry with chicken

Matar Pulao—Long grain Basmati rice cooked with fragrant whole spices and peas

When asked about her culinary background, Meghna notes with a smile that she comes from a culture that has been focused on food for the past five thousand years! With a heritage of food as the epicenter of most occasions, she is driven to find and replicate the countless traditional tastes of India – from Mumbai’s modern restaurants to the street food of tiny villages.

Meghna regularly visits India, where she works with Indian restaurateurs and chefs to keep abreast of their evolving cuisine. Upon return to her San Francisco kitchen, she infuses the latest trends with ancient traditions and techniques to pass along to her students. Meghna can now be found  teaching cooking classes in collaboration with 18 Reasons, San Francisco Cooking School, The Civic Kitchen and her own company Crimson Kitchen.
