The concept of an Indian weekend brunch remains relatively undiscovered in the West, presenting a distinctive departure from the traditional brunch. A North Indian brunch is a culinary delight, offering an array of flavorful and hearty dishes that epitomize the rich heritage of the region. Renowned for its diverse flavors, the spread includes aromatic curries, spicy pickles, and sweet and tangy vegetables, accompanied by hot chai and crispy poories. This class aims to acquaint students with the essence of a classic Indian brunch, providing them with the skills to replicate the menu and savor these delectable dishes in the comfort of their homes.
