You will learn how to make home-cooked, nutritious and healthy traditional Indian vegetarian meals, all from scratch, using fresh ingredients and traditional Indian spices. Home cooked Indian food is slow cooked, with layers of flavour; it’s not like the food made famous in Indian restaurants here in the UK. You’ll learn about the aromas and delicacy of key spices, and make amazing dishes that Indians eat every day at home!
In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
Over the course you will develop your culinary skills, wowing your family and friends with the delights of a real-life Indian home kitchen. Classic Indian flavours are all about spice blends and this is where you’ll start. You’ll be introduced to a range of everyday spices, you’ll learn what and how to buy basic ingredients, and what to keep in your pantry. You’ll learn how to cook multiple dishes – from savoury classic snacks like samosas and pakoras, to specialist breads, to main dishes like lentils, beans and vegetable curries. This fun, easy course needs your commitment to learn. You’ll have endless tips and hacks for replicating these traditional dishes for yourself at home. Your teacher has 60 years of home-cooking experience behind her, and more than 20 years of teaching in Oxfordshire. Her dedication to spreading Indian vegetarian food led her to start up her own food brand with her family ‘Holy Cow’ curry sauces.
