|Darlene grating cucs for the Raita|
I have always been afraid to cook Indian because I thought it was too complicated or involved too much (lazy), but that is not the case at all....yes, it takes a little more prep, but it came together so quickly. Let me add here that Jessica (friendly class assistant) had everything prepped and was constantly cleaning up behind us and bring us what we needed.
|Spices and garlic simmering for the Dhal|
So, we cooked, we tasted.....was that a hot pepper, eeek.....mmmmm to all the spices and smells and I have to say sounds in the kitchen....roasting spices is amazing...they dance and sing to you...love it. After all the cook and tasting we ate. You thought we would clean up like at home? Ha...no way....there was the lovely Jessica once again.
|Chicken in Coconut Curry|
I loved the Samosas and will do them again. The Dhal was well balanced and delightful and the chicken, well seriously, how can curry be bad. And finally, the crowning touch on a great fun evening....Masala Chai....oh my....
|Filling prep.....who cut those potatoes too big?|
To our instructor Sandra....thank you and yum...hope to see you soon again in the kitchen. To Jessica....I looked for you in the shop, but could not purchase you for my own home. And to my fellow kitchen mates....what fun...let's do it again soon.
PS....thank you to Jan for the pictures and Darlene for the email. Do you believe I forgot my camera?
