Classic Indian Cooking: Tried & True
Adult Enrichment / Food & Drink -
In a traditional Indian kitchen, there are some never-fail recipes that are handed down from generation to generation. They incorporate all the basic spices and old world techniques but are deceptively simple to prepare. Explore some of the traditional recipes from the North, South and West. We will learn to make rava sheera (sweetened semolina dessert with milk, cardamom, and nuts), a frequent offering to the very popular god Krishna; potato and tomato curry, which is affordable for the poor but so tasty that the rich have it at their table frequently; and pongal (a south Indian rice) laced with ghee and spices offered to Gods preceding a fresh harvest). Please note: A list of ingredients and substitutions will be included in your Registration Confirmation email.
