What you'll learn in this indian cooking class:

In Workshop #1 (Non-Vegetarian), you will start by making shobji dal, a comforting soupy lentil and vegetable dish made with bottle gourd, cauliflower, tomato, carrots, and peas, seasoned with ginger, coriander, cumin, chilli, turmeric and panch phoron, a traditional Bangladeshi spice blend. 

Next you’ll make a rich and subtle chicken curry called murgir mangsho where fresh chicken is slowly cooked in a spicy tomato based sauce, seasoned with ginger, garlic, cumin, clove, cardamom, chilli, cinnamon, black peppercorn, and turmeric.

As the perfect accompaniment to both dishes, you will learn to make cauliflower stuffed paratha, a light flaky bread filled with a blend of cauliflower, onion, cilantro, and whole cumin seeds. At the end, Afsari will teach you how to form perfect gulab jamun, a light milky fried dumpling that is soaked in an aromatic sweet syrup.

Cooking with Afsari: 

Bengali cuisine, a rich culinary tradition found in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent, is known for its aromatic spices and diverse range of fresh flavors.

When you meet Afsari, you will be delighted by her warmth and graciousness. Upon arrival, Afsari will serve her ginger spiced tea accompanied by a delicious snack of homemade samosas or pakoras along with a range of homemade chutneys, or chaat, a refreshing sweet, spicy, tangy mixture of crunchy puffed rice, chickpeas, fresh cilantro, yogurt, and tamarind sauce. 

In her workshops, you will learn to create the complex, delicious flavors of Bengali cuisine, and you’ll learn the art of handling the myriad number of spices at its heart. Afsari is a master teacher, and her clear and supportive guidance will give you the confidence to successfully make her recipes at home. This is Indian food like you can’t get at any restaurant. 

At the end of the day you’ll go home newly inspired with all the recipes and a shopping guide to Afsari’s favorite food markets.

All immersion workshops include a light lunch and beverage, 3.5 hours of hands-on cooking instruction, a full dinner, a booklet of recipes and in-depth culinary info.
