The Vegetarian Kitchen – Indian Vegetarian Comfort Food
Whisk welcomes back Chef Shama Joshi for Indian Vegetarian Comfort Food 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.
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:
Aaloo-Gobi – Potato and cauliflower seasoned with cumin, mustard seeds and unique blend of spices like you’ve never had before.
Peas Rice Pilaf (Matar Pulao) – Aromatic, long-grained Basmati rice pilaf cooked with whole spices and peas. A perfect accompaniment to any Indian Curry.
Cucumber-peanut Raita – Raita is a cool yogurt dip that counters the heat from spicy food. Ours will have chunks of cucumbers for texture and a garnish of roasted peanut powder.
