What you'll learn in this indian cooking class:

Learn to make a fragrant chicken and potato curry with spiced Basmati rice!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Afsari will guide you through making: 

  • Murgir Mangsho (chicken and potato slow-cooked in a rich and fragrant tomato-based sauce, seasoned with ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin, clove, cardamom, chilli, cinnamon, black peppercorn, and turmeric)
  • Bhath (Basmati rice gently flavored with green cardamom, bay leaf, and cloves) .
