LUNCH & LEARN: Traditional Indian Breads by Jaina Kapadia

November 4, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

- $60

Join Jaina Kapadia for an in-depth, hands-on exploration of traditional Indian Breads, an essential part of any Indian meal — there is nothing like a fresh naan or paratha slathered with ghee or butter!

Traditional Indian breads are flatbreads are cooked on a stove top using a cast iron griddle or a clay tandoor. Although there are regional specialities that utilize ancient grains, most common Indian breads are made with wheat-based flours.

This workshop focuses on easy home-made versions of two essential Indian breads – naan and paratha. Using simple ingredients, we will work with both yeasted and unleavened doughs. We will learn about traditional bread-making techniques and learn how to roll and shape a naan, as well as how to roll out a layered paratha. Jaina will also share her tips and tricks on how to put an Indian feast on the table in 30-40 minutes!

We will make basic versions of these breads, as well as variations – including a quick 20-minute naan, garlic herb flatbread, cumin paratha, mint paratha, and finally a stuffed naan or paratha using a spiced mashed potato filling.

We will also learn how to make a simple curry to go with the breads, all to be enjoyed together at the end of the class with a cup of ginger and cardamom spiced chai!
