Meatless Monday – Indian Traditions with a Twist
Whisk is pleased to welcome Chef Instructor, Shama Joshi for this Meatless Monday – Indian Traditions cooking class. Learn the secrets to flavor layering that develops the complex spicing, varied textures, and lively flavors of Indian food, while celebrating one day of the week where you eat without meat proteins.
Chef Shama followed her passion for feeding others after fulfilling a fourteen year career at Microsoft as a Senior Engineer and started a food truck called Roll Ok Please. Recognized as one of the top 20 places to eat in Seattle by Anthony Bourdin, Roll OK Please was a huge hit with the Seattleites but has recently wound down. Lucky for us! She brings her love of food and people to us with this lively class.
In this hands-on class you will make:
Chilled Chai Tea – India’s beloved caffeine fix, served chilled as a non-alcoholic aperitif
Chana Masala or “Cholay” – Hearty chickpeas stewed in a tangy tomato-onion sauce.
Basmati Rice Pilaf – Aromatic, long-grained Basmati rice pilaf cooked with whole spices and peas.
Beet Raita seasoned with crispy Curry Leaves – Raita is a cool yoghurt dip that counters the heat from spicy food. We will add boiled beets to our raita for an earthy, sweet-savory and delicious take on raita
