What you'll do

I run a home based Indian cookery school. My guests will learn to prepare from scratch authentic and traditional Indian dishes that have been in my family for generations - these are the kind of dishes you would not normally come across in Indian restaurants - passed down in our family over generations.

The 3 hour cookery session will kick off from my brand new home based Indian cookery studio with a spice talk over a nice cup of masala chai - where guests will become more familiar with the key spices that we will use during the cook and the best places to source them. We will then proceed to cook a selection of handpicked dishes - from an assortment of starters and dips that they will have an opportunity to enjoy soon after; this will be followed by cooking a main course curry from scratch - they will make their own portions - followed by preparing a main course accompaniment like Indian bread or a rice based dish too enjoy the curry with. The classes are hand on, allowing them to prepare the meals end to end.
They will then sit down to enjoy the food that they have prepared (they will also have the choice to have it packed to take back if needed). Detailed recipes will be provided. As I make my own spice rubs, spice kits, pickles and chutneys - they will have an opportunity to browse through my little shop - great as gift ideas or to use to recreate their meals again!

Traditional home cooked Indian food has always been an important part of my life. Born and raised in Delhi, in Northern India I got married to a South Indian! This cultural mix of North and South helped build my repertoire of Indian dishes – which have been in our families for generations.

I started my Indian cookery school in 2017 with a simple purpose - to teach healthy and honest food using authentic Indian family recipes that have been closely guarded in our family for generations. I feel passionate about the kind of Indian food we have grown up eating - it is simple, healthy and delicious, prepared using fresh spice powders. The recipes are unique and the taste is genuine.

My classes are run from my bespoke home cookery studio based in a beautiful Surrey village. It is a very welcoming environment.
