Western Indian Cooking with Kalpana Gajjar (Vegetarian)

Event Date: 
Thursday, December 1 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

LovelyMasala blogger and cooking pro, Kalpana Gajjar shares with us vegetarian Gujarat specialties passed down from her mom, aunts, and family members.

While we could spend a whole year learning Kalpana's family recipes, in this class we’ll make Paratha, the second most popular Indian flatbread after naan. “It’s one of the easiest breads to make,” says Kalpana. “If we don’t eat it all fresh out of the oven, we use it to scoop up the flavors of the Flower bataka nu shaak we’ll be making.”

In addition to Flower bataka nu shaak—a cauliflower and potato curry with spices like mustard seeds, coriander, and asafetida—we’ll round out our meal with a proper mung bean Daal, and Kathi, a soul warming chick pea flour and yogurt soup. And last, we’ll whip up a favorite Indian street food called Bhel, a crunchy blend of puffed rice, and spices, topped with chopped onions, tomatoes, chutney, and herbs. Walk away from this class with more knowledge of Western Indian cuisine and a hands-on culinary experience you won’t soon forget!
