Cook and eat your very own four-course Indian feast in this intensive but practical live online class.

Indian food expert, cook and writer, Bhavna Kalra, invites foodies for a hands-on, informative and delicious class on Indian cooking using seasonal vegetables.

If you are someone who loves ordering a Curry, fancy cooking it or just enjoy eating delicious, authentic and hearty Indian food, then this class is made for you!

In this two-and-a-half-hour online cooking class, you will:

  • Discover the food history of the Indian dishes we will be cooking
  • Learn about “Spices 1, 2, 3” - a valuable rundown on spices you need to cook authentic Indian food and where to find them
  • Practice Indian cooking techniques and learn tips and tricks
  • Enjoy eating one of the best four-course Indian feasts ever!

After the class, you will come away with knowledge on how to easily prepare your authentic and delicious Indian curries, Dals and meat-based dishes. We hope this will then motivate you to add a wholesome, healthy Indian way of cooking to your home-cooked, fresh meals.

This class will also give you the confidence to be familiar with spices and lentils that you can use when cooking other dishes and cuisine.

On the menu:
  • Mushroom Korma OR Chickpeas Curry

  • Dal
  • Pulao (Lemon Rice OR Corn & Spinach pulao)

A passionate cook connecting cultures with food. Serving real Indian feasts with stories.

On a mission to teach people that there is more to Indian food than Butter chicken and Rogan Josh. My love for food is infused with storytelling and memories so you can understand and appreciate where the ingredients came from and how easy it is to whip up a six to seven-course Indian meal any day of the week.

Thank you so much for such a fantastic evening. This is the perfect lockdown activity. Bhavna has managed to make cooking via zoom, simple, fun and most certainly delicious. You will also have many lunches and dinners following the class Definitely will be back! Thanks again.

What an amazing class

Fun. The flavours smells and colours

So well organised.
I learnt so much not just about Indian cooking but also history and culture

I would highly recommend this class

If you are doing the class open the box earlier. Than I dis. There is a bit of prep

And check what size pans you need and how many

You will have enough food for the whole week

Thank you

Jacqueline Veldhuis Sep 2021


so much wonderful food
Indian cuisine is something that I am new to and now love
the smell in the kitchen was delicious and everything was so bright and colourful
a lot to follow and keep up with and I wish I had not opened the box 5 min before class as there was a lot of prep work to do

One suggestion would be to be aware how many pans you are going to need and what size/types of pans

I learnt a lot about not just the Indian food but culture and history

I would recommend this class to anyone

we have enough food left for the rest of the week

Thank you
