Do you love Nepali, Punjabi, or Indian food but are intimidated by the idea of making it yourself? Do you need more vegetarian options to spice up the dinner routine? Perhaps you have a dal recipe in your rotation but want to learn variations, enhance your flavors, or work with the ingredients you currently have on hand. Chef Laura Scheck first discovered the nourishing simplicity of Dal Bhat Tarkari while studying in Nepal during college. Since then, it has been a staple of her weekday cooking routine.
This class will teach you the fundamentals of working with legumes and split pulses, sourcing and utilizing vibrant Indian spices, developing layers of flavor, and perfecting a "tadka". And what is dal without rice? You will also learn how to make perfectly fluffy and fragrant basmati rice.
Menu items will include:
- A big Pot of Vegetarian Dal
- Spiced Basmati Rice
- Cumin Roasted Cauliflower
Minimal Prep required. The recipes in this class are vegetarian and gluten-free and can be made vegan with simple substitutions. No special tools, equipment, or ingredients needed.
