I went to an Indian Cooking For Beginners class on a Saturday afternoon. The class was three hours. I had a lot of fun, and I learned a lot. "Take aways" included: note to self, "I need to get a rice cooker and a wok," as well as "I should try cauliflower curry at home, and Indian chai tea." I loved the Indian Chai tea that our teacher Rachel Singapogu made. The liquid was half water and half milk. Some of the spices in the tea included: black pepper, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. I also want to try adding cilantro to my raita like Rachel did at the class. Rachel said she's thinking about doing an intermediate level Indian Cooking class. I'm thinking I need to get to that . . .
You can find the recipes for the items in the pics at Rachel's blog My Indian Recipes. The dishes Rachel taught at the class were: Special Rice, Masala Red Lentils, Cauliflower Curry, Chicken Curry, Raita, and Chai.
