Indian Dal and Flatbread Workshops (6/19 & 6/26, 6-7:30pm)

2 weeks, 1 class per week (1.5 hours)

$130.00

Dal Workshop

Learn how to make four different and delicious regional Indian dals, plus a lentil chutney. You’ll get to work with spices common in Indian cuisine such as asafoetida, Kashmiri chilli powder, curry leaves and mustard seeds, and learn the technique all Indian cooks use to amp up the taste of dal: briefly frying spices in hot coconut oil or ghee to make a tarka.

You will also learn why it is important to soak and sprout lentils, and how to use bone broth to make Indian dals even more nutrient-dense. You will get to sample a few lentil-based snacks from India and take home the recipes and the dals made in class.

Dal is the common term for the whole family of dried beans, peas and lentils used in Indian cooking. An inexpensive source of protein rich in fiber, folate and vitamin B1, nutrient-rich dals are game-changers for both human and environmental health since growing them requires no irrigation or chemical fertilizers and is restorative for the soil. Dals are an essential part of every Indian's food world. Eating dal is never boring because each has its own taste and texture and can be combined with different spices and vegetables for endless variety.

You will get to sample a few lentil-based snacks from India along with the dals ​made in class and take the recipes home.

 

Indian Flatbreads Workshop

An everyday staple for more than a billion people, the essential, all-purpose roti is India’s favorite flatbread and a perfect introduction to the country’s famously rich and diverse bread-baking culture. Requiring no oven, no yeast and no mixers, rotis are simple, round flatbreads made from whole wheat dough cooked on a dry, hot griddle. Without the right technique and ingredients, however, the humble roti, like a good baguette, can be unforgiving and tricky to master.

In this class, you will learn how to make perfectly round, sprouted, whole grain spelt rotis as well as its rich, chewy, flaky variation – the paratha – that can either be enriched with ghee and layered like a croissant, or stuffed with delicious fillings such as spicy potatoes, meats, cheese or vegetables. You will also learn how to make spiced wheat-free flatbreads using nutritious, whole grain flours like purple barley, as well as a dessert flatbread stuffed with sweetened lentils.  No forks or knives needed – Indian flatbreads are a hands-only operation!

In addition to sampling all of the flatbreads made in class, participants will take home all the recipes shared in class.
