Tackling Indian cooking was #2 on my bucket list for 2012 (per this post). Indian food is the only cuisine that eludes me. The ingredients and spices are very intimidating to me. On Monday, I took an Indian cooking class at Sur La Table to finally learn how to cook it. I was really surprised at how easy Indian cooking can be. Why was I so scared? Indian food is so delicious and so flavorful without all the cream and butter. I did have to amp up the spices in my pantry to make the curry for dinner last night. What I loved about the class was that we all cooked everything from the menu. I’ve been to cooking classes before where you only cook 1 thing from the menu and never get to make the other things. This was the menu: Coconut spring vegetable curry with cashews, grilled chicken masala with mango-mint chutney, lemon-cucumber raita, cumin scented basmati rice, and cardamom vanilla custard with ginger grilled pineapple. I’m definitely hooked on Indian food now!
