Cooking: Indian Food in 30 Minutes

Transform ready-made spice packets into an (almost!) authentic Indian dish in under 30 minutes! M


Short of time but still love those classic Indian flavours? Manjula will show you how to adapt ready-made Indian spice mixes and create amazing and tasty dishes in no time, plus make a classic bread to go with them.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:
• Change ready-made spice mixes into authentic-tasting Indian dishes
• Make tasty naan bread to go with the main dishes
• Identify what ingredients and mixes to buy and where to buy them
• Be aware of safety issues around using hot oils and food preparation skills

Some ingredients provided but a list of additional things to bring (approximate weekly cost $20) will be sent out when course numbers are confirmed. Bring an apron, dishcloth, tea towels and containers to take any leftovers home.
