Mumbai, being a big city has a diverse crowd living in it. Each community and cuisine is in its own way unique. The Kathiyawad cuisine too, differs from the usual Gujarati variety of food by being more on the spicy side. Meet home-chefs Bela and Pooja at their home in Andheri for an amazing cooking and dining experience. You will be welcomed with a refreshing glass of Lemon and Mint cooler. You can then head to the kitchen where you will learn to make Tomato Sev Sabzi (tomatoes and onions cooked together in spices and served with a topping of sev), Rotli where diners can have some fun kneading dough and rolling it up and making it thin and nice, and finally roast them on the pan. You can then head to the dining area where you will be served with the rest of the meal.
You will get to taste some amazing Kathiyawad dishes like, Dhoklas (Steamed gram flour cakes served with a tempering), Lasuni Aloo (Potatoes cooked with garlic), Udad Dal in Rice (Lentils cooked in mild spices and served with steamed rice), Baingan Bharta (Roasted eggplant cooked with tomatoes, onions and spices). Do keep some more space for the dessert that will include Churmi nu Ladoo (Balls of sweetness made with jaggery, coconut and sesame seeds) and Dudh Paak (Indian pudding made with milk, rice, saffron and nuts).
Feel free to ask Bela and Pooja all about the cuisine and the spices involved in the cooking. They would be happy to share their experiences with you!
This is not a professional cooking class but rather an opportunity to learn the tips and tricks of Indian cooking and experience authentic Indian food with a local.
