A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 14 students. See our registration policies here and our rules for in-person events here.

Indian curries often steal the limelight, but breads are worthy of celebrity, too! In this class, we'll make three Indian breads. Though they taste vastly different, each has an approachable technique for home cooks. These are breads you can create in the comfort of your home without any special equipment. And to accompany these famous breads, we'll make a classic curry and a raita.



Roti—Griddled Whole Wheat Flatbread

Poori—Fried Whole Wheat Bread

Tandoori Roti—Baked Whole Wheat Flatbread (similar to naan)

Matar Paneer—Curry with Firm Indian Cheese and Peas

Cucumber Mint Raita—Savory Yogurt with Mint and Cucumber
