Yum! Indian Cooking Classes in Stockholm

Update, April 18th, 2012: I will be holding a cooking class in May and June. After that, I’ll be taking a break for a few months so please contact me and let me know. We can work out a custom plan for you as well!

I love cooking and one of topics readers wanted covered from the polling was more posts about cooking and different cuisines.

Now that it is spring and the weather is still terrible, it’s time to cosy up and cook lovely food. I will host a few cooking classes over the spring for Indian food. If you love Indian cuisine from the restaurants (the few, the proud, the delicious), learning to cook that same kind of food at home is easy.

Truly, Indian cooking is easy once you master the basics and understanding of the spices. The classes are a bit intense if you are not accustomed to Asian spices but certainly not at the level of Kendall’s Chicago culinary arts colleges or the Swedish Chef.

What I’m planning is to host a course made of three sessions in a one week period.

My mom, a fantastic cook, knows Gujarati, vegetarian, Marathi, South Indian, traditional North Indian, and even some Burmese dishes. She will lead the cooking class as her depth and knowledge of Indian food is brilliant.

In honor of my mom’s fabulous cooking, I will lead two more sessions.


What will you learn?

Because it is summer, we will have lighter meals. Simple, quick Indian dishes.

For drinks: mango lassi, sweet lassi, Indian chai (don’t call it chai tea, that’s calling it tea tea then), or chaas (a favorite Gujarathi drink made of yogurt).

Food: Chole bhatura (chick pea curry), paneer bhurji, dahl, biryani, egg curry, and fresh home paneer (cheese!).

Grilling: Tandoori chicken

Side dishes: Raita, papad.

Dishes may change but chicken tikka masala will be on the menu!

Naan cannot officially be made at home because homes do not have a tandoor, an oven charcoal pit. Instead, we will make roti, another typical Indian bread.


Class schedule:

May and June 2012. Classes are open dates at this time.
They are three nights of session but email me so we can work something out!

If you want to have the class on the weekend, that can be organized as well, please email me.

If you are interested, or want to gift it to a friend. Please post a comment or email me directly at ablacksapphire at gmail dot com. Half the payment must be received before the class starts. It will be held at my home in Stockholm.

This will be wonderful for all of you Indian food lovers out there looking to bring India to your home! Besides, how often do you get a chance to learning Indian cooking in Stockholm, Sweden?

And mumms the word!

Ahh, I wish I could be there. After making a lot of dietary changes in the past couple of years, I have become a newfound fan of Indian food. I have only had it a few times so far as a treat, because we don’t know how to prepare any of it yet. Once we learn some, I think it will be something we have around most often. Oh the spices!

Hey, getting hungry, already.
How about Indian “Deep fried Puri” or Samosa for appetizers?

James, will definitely post some recipes to share. Indian food can be very simple and easy on the tummy. Glad you love the food.

Ravi, considered samosas but at the moment do not have deep fryer and if it is too hot, this may not be so fun. But let’s see!

Hi Sapphire,
I’m looking for something fun and social to do with our lab (about 10 ppl) and I thought about a cooking class. So I wondered how much a single class would cost for about 10 ppl.
Thanks,
Hiske

please let me know as well about the prices, will it get cheaper if we organize more people?

All best to you
