Upcoming Class – Flavors of India: Pooris & Punjabi-Style Curries @ 18 Reasons

punjabi thali

We are totally excited to share our upcoming class highlighting the flavors of Northern India.  Mom has been teaching us family recipes and both of us have been diligently learning, recording, writing and practicing.  I already knew most of the recipes, but the process of documenting family recipes is a tremendous feeling of connection with family, food, community and tradition. And Stacie is becoming quite the poori maker and how many “self-described born and bred San Francisco Hapa girls” can do that? 🙂

Come join us for a unique date night, girls night out, friends night out or even come by yourself – I assure you, you will enjoy the meal and community.  Plus, if you have not checked out 18 Reasons – it is a wonderful opportunity to do so.

Learn about essential Indian spices, special ingredients and unique cooking techniques, while we make some of my favorite family recipes. Together we’ll cook an Indian feast: golden, puffed pooris, a trio of vegetarian curries, and some classic accompaniments. When served together, the dishes on this menu would be a typical Sunday family lunch in Northern India’s Punjab region, but each of the dishes on their own makes a wonderful addition to your home cooking repertoire.  This meal is suitable for vegetarians and even vegans.  For the carnivores out there, it makes you forget the “need for meat” – even if it is just for one meal.

  1. Thank you for a wonderful class last Friday! What a great way to spend the night! I wanted to let you know I cooked my own mini-feast last night – Bodi Bhua’s Chana Masala, Mom’s Shahi Paneer, Poori, Kachumber and Simple Onion Pickle (we added cucumbers) My 11 year old daughter made most of the poori on her own, she just needed help with the needing and the frying. It took me 2 hours, but a wonderful way to spend time with your children! Looking forward to making more of the recipes at home! Thank you again!
