Do you love Nepali, Bengali or Indian food but are intimidated by the idea of making it yourself? Do you need more vegetarian options to spice up the dinner routine? Perhaps you have a dal recipe in your rotation but want to learn variations, enhance your flavors, or work with the ingredients you currently have on hand. I first discovered the nourishing simplicity of Dal Bhat Tarkari while studying in Nepal during college. Since then, it has been a staple of my weekday cooking routine.
This class will teach you the fundamentals of working with legumes and split pulses, sourcing and utilizing vibrant Indian spices, developing layers of flavor and perfecting a "tadka". And what is dal without rice? You will also learn how to make perfectly fluffy and fragrant basmati rice.
