Indian food Cooking Demo

I am starting on a new adventure in my life and my first cookery demo is on indian food, samosas, parathas, prawn curry, tandoori chicken and more... I can fit a party of six guests there will plenty of tasters and everyone will go home with a goody bag.  If you are interested in attending it is on the 25th of this month 6pm-9pm and the cost is 45.  I am also thinking of demonstrating cake making including cupcakes.  Please message me if interested.

Thanks for the reply, the demo went really well they all loved the food and even had a go making parathas and samosas.  I have had good feedback and my chicken tandoori was made by one of them recently and the family loved it!  Looking forward to my next one.

Re: Indian food Cooking Demo

I have never been able to keep the pastry samosa covers intact whilst frying. I once ate at our Qatari agent's house and his wife (Lebanese) served some wonderful bite size samosas. I enquired as to how she could make the triangles so small but still keep them intact? She told me it was easy - make the stuffing yourself and take it around to the pastry shop for them to provide the pastry and fill the samosas.

Without a local pastry shop, I now resort to using samosa filling in spring roll pastry.

Re: Indian food Cooking Demo

Back in 2000 when we first moved into our house here, I was asked by two of my neighbour's children if I could assist them with a school project. They were required to cook a foreign (to them) dish which would be judged the following day by their teachers.

Given that it would require re-heating or eaten cold, I decided fish and chips or roast beef and Yorkshires would not really be suitable. After some deliberation, and given that many Thais do not eat beef, I suggested an old Mridula favourite, egg and potato dum (they provide the eggs).

The designated afternoon came round and they duly arrived to commence their introduction to Indian cuisine cooking. Now my kitchen is not small compared to Thai standards but mine was designed for me and my wife. What I had failed to grasp was that the class had been divided into four for this project, so I ended up with 12 x 13 year old girls in my kitchen! Impossible! In the end we lined then up as neatly as possible along the back wall and I proceeded to cook the dish with them watching.

The dish won one of the four prizes.

As an aside, one of the girls is now standing for mayor of our village. Doesn't time fly?

That's awesome.  I like samosa, whether it is vegetable or meat.  It is delicious  and appetizing, great with tea. A perfect snack!

Re: Indian food Cooking Demo

I've always fancied having a go at samosas. on hairy bikers one of the mums made them with flour tortillas, just like the ones you can get from some snack outlets in london. Mmm!
