Diwali – Indian Small Bites

Presented by Sue Kumar
About the class

Diwali – The Indian Festival of Light is calling you…

Diwali is one of the most popular festivals of Hinduism. The celebration of Diwali symbolizes the spiritual ‘victory of light over darkness‘, ‘good over evil‘, and ‘knowledge over ignorance‘. On Saturday 24th October let us enlighten you to the wonders of Indian cuisine in a cooking class that celebrates a range of Indian street food in all it’s glory!

With Maya and Sue Kumar as your hosts and cooking instructors, you will be lead through a fantastic menu of iconic Diwali snacks.

You will learn how to prepare and cook crunchy pakoras, warm and comforting samosas with bright chutney, zingy potato-stuffed fried chilies, as well as grilled and marinated paneer cheese. You will also make a delicious Indian dessert and enjoy a glass of wine with lunch.

So come and let your tastebuds dance around our kitchen under the twinkling lights of your own personal Diwali festival!

Your Menu…

  • Cauli-Pea Samosas
  • Mirchi Bajji (Potato-stuffed chilies)
