One Day Traditional Indian Cooking Classes

ONE DAY COURSE (9.30am - 4.30pm)

Only £155.00 per person inc. VAT

Nila Ross-Patel, guest Indian cooking class tutor at Exeter Cookery School, will teach you how to create authentic Indian cuisine the way her mother taught her.

Learn all about authentic Indian cooking.

We are delighted to welcome cookery tutor Nila for a day of cooking Indian cuisine the authentic way.

You will discover how the dishes fit in with the cultural and geographical influences of India. This knowledge is a result of Nila’s multicultural upbringing in the UK and family trips to India.

At morning break time, you will have Masala Chai served with samosas and avocado dip.

Lunch will be what you have cooked, served with spiced cauliflower and peas. However, no meal is complete without dessert, and so Jim Fisher will make pears poached in red wine with his lovely pistachio and cardamom ice cream.

After a hearty lunch, you will make Rutli (chapatti) dough. Nila will show you how you shape the Rutlis and fill them with a samosa filling.

And you will learn how to dry fry your own spices. If you love a good curry, this is the course to come on to develop your own flavours of India.

Techniques learnt:

  • Identifying and using fresh and dry spices
  • Preparing your own spice mix, for example jeera or dhana mix
  • Making and rolling unleavened dough for samosas and rutli (chapatis)
