How it works

You can choose to have a private cooking class or a cooking class party for about 4 – 10 people. Regardless of what option you choose, there will be plenty of food to eat.

The cooking class will be at your house, you can choose a one /two / three hour cooking class. I have provided a menu for classes based on time. However, the menu can be tailored to suit your needs, food preferences or accommodate any food allergies.

The one-hour class – has an option of Tea and Appetizers or simple quick to cook meals.

The two-three hour class is a Basic Indian meal, main dish ( daal) , 2 side veggies (potatoes, eggplant), rice and a roti.

In the three-four hour cooking class, we will be working a little harder to make our own sauce with (onion, garlic,ginger,tomato) from scratch for Rajma or Cholle ( Kidney or Garbanzo beans) and a more complex bread like naan or alu parantha ( potato stuffed flat bread)

You will do the shopping from a list sent to you after we talk about the menu. If you prefer I bring spices and shop then we could talk about that as well.The rates will depend on the number of people and the hours spent on cooking.

I will provide recipes to take home at the end of the class. It will be an enjoyable experience in your own home with your family or a group of friends. After the cooking class — Indian cooking will no longer seem like an enigma.

  1. Here is a simple version of the recipe…
    An easier version of the Chicken recipe would be

    Marinate about 4 cups of cubed chicken in 1/2 C of plain greek yoghurt, 1 Tbsp of minced garlic, 1 Tbsp of minced ginger
    Bake at 350 in the oven… ( turn them over half way through) for 30 – 40 minutes
    Prepare a puree of tomatoes about 4 cups,
    Let it simmer with 1 Tbsp of coriander powder, 2 tsp of cumin powder, 2 Tbsp of cardamom powder, 2 – 4 tsp of Cayenne pepper,
    for about 15 – 20 minutes,
    Add the baked chicken in the sauce, Simmer for 15 – 20 minutes
    Add 1 tsp garam masala and 1/2 tsp of roasted fenugreek leaf powder and 1 Tbsp of honey….
    Add 2 Tbsp of fresh cream….

    Let me know how that works for you!


  2. Hi Ish, I was wondering if you had a recipe for Chicken Tikka Masala posted on your blog. I have looked but am unable to find one (if indeed you have posted one). I am going to expand my cooking wings tomorrow night and try making my very first Indian dish for my son and his girlfriend. Corrina will be visiting from Seattle. I am also going to try making your naan recipe. If you have any tips I would be happy to hear them.

    1. I have recipes for simpler dishes … I think chicken tikka masala is a complex dish… something you usually make when you are super -familiar with spices 🙂
