Learn how to create your own six-course Indian vegan feast in a practical and intensive five-hour workshop with a friend or partner, catered just for you.

Join writer and Indian food enthusiast, Bhavna Kalra, for an evening of wholesome goodness, as you learn all about the basics of vegan Indian cooking using seasonal vegetables.

You’ll come away with a whole lot of knowledge on how to prepare your curries, Dals, and vegetable dishes that will become a staple in your kitchen. Not only will this cooking class give you the confidence to get familiar with the spices and lentils that you can use in everyday cooking but will also give you practical tips on how to incorporate a wholesome Indian way of cooking in your daily life.

  • Spices 1 – 2 – 3: A rundown on what spices do you need in your kitchen to cook Indian food and where to find them
  • Being a vegan with Indian cuisine

After the class, you will get to sit down and share the meal that you have cooked lovingly with your own hands.

On the menu:

  • Pooris (Deep fried bread)
  • Vegetable Kadhai

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.

The teacher was very welcoming and she knows all the traditional
methods of Indian cooking. The class was interactive - we all
had a chance to cook something.
The venue was a manageable walk from Epping Station.
The food was very substantial and I really enjoyed cooking and eating it.

Bhavna greeted me with warmth and humour, and before long my fellow students and I were munching on delicious Indian snacks and the best chai I've ever tasted; this would keep us going for the next few hours until we could enjoy the meals we were about to learn how to cook. Bhavna's stories and anecdotes brought her culture to life, and she generously offered cooking tips and tricks that one usually only hears from a dear family member. Importantly, each of us took turns preparing six delicious dishes that we shared as a feast (my photo simply doesn't do this justice), each leaving with containers full of takeaways. This was the best home-cooked Indian food I've ever tasted and now equipped with the booklet provided by Bhavna, I'm confident and excited about growing my vegetarian repertoire with everything I learned and experienced. Highly recommend!

Incredible class, my partner and I loved every minute of it and have come away with some great skills for Indian cuisine. Bhavna was a fantastic teacher and even provided some history lessons along the way. Cheers, Mike and Azar
