Experience some of the wonderful flavours from the north and south of India, by learning how to use flagrant spices and making tasty morsels of food.

This course will cover the following dishes: Spicy vegetable samosas Bhajis Halwa

Course Content: Firstly we will make our delicately spiced vegetable mix for our samosas. Here you will learn the smells and tastes of the different spices used. Whilst this is cooling we will make spiced batter for the bhajis. When fried you will have light, fluffy and very moreish bhajis (not the oil drenched dense bhajis you get at the local Indian takeaway!). Leaving these to rest, we will start making our carrot halwa, a process that will give you a fudge like texture that is not too sweet.

Whilst the halwa is cooling down we will make our samosas, making triangle parcels with a thin pastry. These will then be fried or baked until they are crispy.

You will take home delicately spiced bhajis, samosas and a carrot halwa.
