The "Cooking Masala” Indian gastronomy class was certainly the most memorable, informative and enjoyable experiences of our recent trip to India. Amit and his delightful family put so much good spirit into sharing the refined art and labor of love that is Indian cooking. We learned how to make Saag Aloo, Shahi Paneer, Kadai Paneer, Kheer, Masala Chai and Rice Pulao. Each dish was more delicious than the next and the manner in which he taught gave us the fundamentals to make a plethora of other dishes. Amit is so patient, kind and knowledgeable and answered every question (no matter how silly or irrelevant) with grace and courtesy. Amit's wife, son and staff are charming, kind and treated us like family from the moment we walked in.
The Masala Chai tea that Amit prepares and teaches you to make, is simply the finest I have ever tasted.I was delighted to find out that Amit sells all the spices you use in the class and tea at the Cooking Masala kitchen and also at his shop just down the road, the Jain Spice Shop on Lakshman Jhula Road. The price for the class and spices is minuscule in comparison to the quality that is received. Worth every penny and then some.
After visiting the shop it was quite evident that he is from a long tradition of the finest Spice Purveyors in the land and that their non-violent approach of spice preparation and drying is reflected in the utmost superior quality.
We were so grateful that we saw the Cooking Masala flyer on the street and made our way to such memorable and fulfilling experience.
Thank you and Jai Jinendra!
