An Indian Feast
Adult Enrichment / Food & Drink -
Enjoy an evening of cooking and culture as we prepare a simple meal together. Come prepared for hands-on participation and get transported to another world. Dishes will include: deep-fried pakoras (vegetable fritters), served with date chutney (sweet and sour dipping sauce made with dates and tamarind); aloo gobi (a simple curry of cauliflower and potatoes cooked with ginger, chilies, tomato and spices); masoor dal (lemony red lentil stew with ginger, garlic, and chilies); jira rice (rice laced with ghee and cumin seeds, and a touch of brown sugar). These dishes will be served with a quick garlic naan (popular store-bought bread embellished with garlic and butter).
