Travel to South India in this hands-on cooking class with Chef Sara. She'll teach you the skills and techniques needed to make four traditional South Indian dishes. First, you'll learn how to make a lentil- and vegetable-based sambar soup loaded with spices. Then, you'll make some dosa, which is a thin South Indian crêpe filled with potatoes, lentils, rice and spices. To serve alongside your dosa, you'll also prepare a handmade coconut cilantro chutney. Lastly, the class will conclude with South Indian-style coffee and traditional kheer pudding.
When Chef Sara first came to the United States, she noticed one thing in particular: so-called "authentic" Indian restaurants were preparing traditional Indian dishes using unnecessary artificial flavorings and additives. Thus began her mission is to educate home cooks of all calibers on the importance of cooking with whole foods. Fast forward to today and Chef Sara now has more than 30 years of experience teaching others how to cook truly authentic Indian cuisine.
