When one thinks of Indian food, curries is one of the first things that comes to mind, and often those of Northern India. Curries form the foundation of a lot of meals when paired with a variety of side dishes. In this class, Meghna will teach you two essential curries: one meat curry and a vegetable curry, along with some sides to round off the meal.



Chicken Curry—A classic chicken dish with tomatoes, ginger and garlic.

Palak Paneer—Spinach and paneer (an Indian cheese) in a rich tomato sauce.

Spiced Rice—Basmati rice sauteed in whole fragrant spices.

Apple Raita—A sweet and savory yogurt side dish to accompany our warm curries
