Join Jaina Kapadia for an exploration of some of the most popular Indian treats – crispy Samosas and fresh Naan! You’ll start with a hands-on demonstration of one of the most beloved Indian flatbreads – the pillowy naan! Using simple ingredients, you will create a quick yeasted dough, and learn how to roll and shape a naan. There will be options to make a few variations, including garlic-herb, and stuffed naans.
Next up, you’ll be making Samosas; after quick demo of how the dough is made from scratch, you’ll learn how to roll outs & shape the wrappers, fill it with a spiced potato and green pea stuffing, and how to fold and form the pastry.
There will also be a simple chana masala (chickpea curry) prepared to accompany the fresh naan, as well as to make a samosa chaat appetizer garnished using flavourful cilantro-lime and date-tamarind chutneys.
There’ll be plenty of opportunity to talk about how many ingredients can cross over and be used in different ways with minimal effort. Everyone will end the class with a cup of cardamon and ginger spiced chai while enjoying everything we cooked together!
