Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:
Your online cooking class will start with a welcome from your host, who will tell you about their home and life in India, and show you around their kitchen. You’ll learn what things are always found in Indian kitchens and how authentic Indian food is very different from what’s served in Indian restaurants. You might be surprised to discover that not all Indian cuisine is spicy or difficult to make! But it is packed with flavors and your host will share some secret tricks that you can use in your own cooking at home. We’ll start by making a cup of masala chai, which is India’s national drink. All conversations in India start with chai, from friendly gossip sessions to business meetings, so this is the perfect way for us to get to know each other! We’ll then move on to cooking an authentic Indian gravy-based dish called Kadai paneer (or tofu), along with parantha, which is Indian bread. As we cook, your host will explain all the ingredients and give you easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. Your host will also answer any questions you have about the cuisine, customs, and culture of India. To really help you feel like you’re in India, we’ll have some of our favorite Bollywood music playing in the kitchen, and your host will teach you a few Hindi words and phrases. Once your meal is prepared, your host will show you how to plate it and eat it as Indians do. You’ll have more time for questions and conversations, and afterward, we’ll send you a copy of the recipe to keep so you can make it again (plus a few other dishes you can try at home). The full ingredients and supplies list will be sent to you via email ahead of the tour. You will need: For the masala chai 1 cup of water ½ cup of milk (any kind) (optional) Black tea ½ tsp sugar (optional) Green cardamom (1 for 1 cup) Cinnamon (pinch for 1 cup) Black Pepper (around 4 to 6 peppercorns) Cloves (around 1 clove for 1 cup) Fresh ginger (pinch) For the parantha (bread) 2 cups wheat flour Water Oil (any kind) Clarifying butter (or oil) Spices: salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, carom seeds (optional) Rolling pin For the Kadai paneer/tofu 2-3 chopped red onions 4-5 tomatoes Ginger (pinch) 1 green chili 2 chopped capsicums (bell peppers) 1-2 tbsp oil (any type) Spices: salt, red chili powder, dry coriander powder, turmeric powder, cumin seeds (powder will also work), garam masala (optional) 2 tbsp cream (optional) Fresh coriander leaves Tofu or cottage cheese
