Join us on the non-stop, all-India karma train! Let’s first begin with a spice immersion. What are all these gorgeous spices used for and why? In what order? What are their benefits? How else can you use them? After we walk down the glorious spice trail, you’ll learn more about Indian spices and curries, and then apply that knowledge to create deliciousness. We’ll cheers with a Cumin Martini and cook a fabulous Chicken Tikka Masala, one of the most popular dishes. Enjoy the Masala alongside an Indian-spiced Basmati Rice (and change the way you make rice forever!) Are you a vegetarian or vegan? Not to worry — we have modifications for you!
