*This class will meet virtually via Zoom. The link will be sent the day before class to enrolled students.*
Join us on a fermented adventure to India as we explore making dosas and idlis. In this class we’ll talk about the history of these tasty breads made from lentils and rice, their fermentation process, best practices, and how to make them yourself at home.
Recipes will be sent in advance. Since the batters for each need to ferment a bit, you won't be able to make them completely during class time, but you will walk you through the whole process. To cook idli down the road, you will need an idli steamer.
