This is an old class! Check out the current classes, or sign up for our mailing list to see if we'll offer this one again.

In this class you will learn how to prepare an authentic South Indian meal, including traditional home cooked dishes you will not find in restaurants. South India is known for inventive vegetarian cuisine that is light, fresh and spicy - lots of fresh veggies, lemon, coconut and fried spices. The menu is made up of family recipes passed down from my mother who grew up Bangalore. 


Sambar - spicy lentil stew
Chitranna - peanut rice with lemon and coconut
Kosambri - carrot salad with soaked lentils, coconut and fried spice
Radish Yogurt Raita

(class size: 12, demo and some hands on)
