A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 10 students. See our registration policies here and our rules for in-person events here.

It is that time of year when you need warm, comforting food. As we celebrate the end of the year and holiday season, let's cook up a menu of luxurious, indulgent Indian dishes. In the spirit of the season, we will be making choley bhature, a magical combination of fried bread and spiced beans. To complement that pairing, you'll make a fiery and bright mint chutney and a cooling yogurt sauce. Finally, a sweet warm ginger tea to wash it down. 



Choley—Garbanzo Bean Curry

Bhature—Deep Fried Puffy Bread

Mint Chutney—Mint and Garlic with Chilies and Lemon

Raita—Yogurt and tomato Raita

Ginger Chai
