Love to eat Indian food? Want to learn how to make them at home? Come and join our classes!
Indian Cookery Lessons started as a fun idea and continues to remain a fun project till date. It is a place where
you learn to cook good Indian food, eat all the food cooked, laugh and have fun all the way!!
The main focus is to build confidence rather than simply showing students how to prepare a dish. This is achieved
by creating a warm and supportive atmosphere where even the most shy student feels safe enough to try cooking
something totally new. We always encourage creative cooking rather than dogmatic following; hence our motto is
"give-it-a-try-and-see-what-evolves". We stay around to guide and support students should they need any help.
Each dish taught in class is prepared by students themselves. This gives them a 'hands-on' training and a real feel of
what the process involves, thus making it easier to prepare the same dish later on. Most students are easily able to
reproduce what they learnt in class at home.
Lessons are currently being held between September 2015 - December 2015 to
fund-raise for the South East Cancer Help Centre - a wonderful local charity
very close to my heart that helps Patients and families affected by cancer. All profits
made from my lessons will be donated to the South East Cancer Help Centre. If you
want to donate to my favourite charity, please visit my JustGiving Page.
More lessons will be held between January 2016 - March 2016 raising money for another small organisation very
close to my heart - 1st Belmont Scouts Group (Sutton District). Both my boys, Rajiv & Ronnie, have had some
serious fun, adventure and a lot of good times courtesy their Scouts Group. As a parent, my real insight into the
dedication of Scout Leaders happened after staying in camp as a Parent Helper. Had I not seen first hand the sheer
volume of hard work, thought, planning and commitment that happens in running these groups, I would have
remained totally oblivious of their contribution towards my children's development. Once again, all profits made
from my lessons will be donated to the 1st Belmont Scouts Group towards their minibus fund. (Yes, I have been
on their minibus a few times and think they need a new one fairly SOON!!) If you have money to spare and want
to help my favourite Scouts group get their minibus, do get in touch please.
Here's what happens in class:
|We teach delicious homely Indian meals that are simple, quick and easy to achieve. We are fond of both 'restaurant |
|style' and 'home-made' Indian food. There is a world of difference in both styles and what we attempt to teach is a |
fusion of both worlds - one which creates a 'restaurant style' taste minus excessive use of spices and oil. The end
result is a tasty, mouthwatering meal which is equally healthy. We usually teach four dishes everyday.
|Classes are held in English and handouts are given for all recipes taught. All preparation work (i.e. peeling, |
|chopping, boiling etc.) is done in advance and not included in the class time. We cook enough for students to enjoy |
a hearty meal after a hard days work. All you have to do is pay and attend. We take care of the rest! You do not
have to be a competent cook to attend. All you need is interest and motivation to learn. The rest is easy!
|We are happy to accommodate special religious and dietary needs provided we know about them in advance. If you |
|need any help preparing a meal at home after attending our classes, we would be happy to help via e-mail or |
|Most of our students are happy for us to take Pictures so that others can see what goes on in class. Many are |
|happy to leave Feedback too for others to read.|
|The excitement does not stop there. Our students constantly give us ideas about how to progress our classes and |
|we are immensely grateful to them! Thank you for visiting our website. ~ Nina Guha|
