Chef and food writer Maunika Gowardhan has amassed a global following of home cooks who have fallen in love with her cooking style and traditional Indian recipes that are accessible and achievable. Born and raised in Mumbai, Maunika is now based in the UK and is passionate about bringing the rich history of the tandoor to your Kitchen.
In her brand new book Tandoori Home Cooking, Maunika takes you on a tour to share an explosion of tandoori flavours, spices, recipes and culinary heritage found across the streets and restaurants of India, with dishes that can be made in conventional ovens and grills in your home all year round.
Together with Maunika you will be cooking an achari murgh tikka (skewered grilled chicken marinated in mustard, pickling spices and chilli with a vegetarian option of cauliflower with new potatoes), dahi ke kebab (spiced yoghurt and paneer kebabs with green chilli, ginger and garam masala) and a wonderful Punjabi gram flour flat bread with turmeric, carom seeds and coriander. Alongside you will be making a tomato chutney with garlic and chilli and an apple beetroot mooli salad.
You will emerge from this class armed with knowledge, skill and plenty of tips for cooking, making and serving this wonderful cuisine in your own home.
The class will start at 10am and finish around 3.30 / 4pm and includes lunch with wine. Please bring a container to take home some of your delicious food.
