The Art of Indian Cooking
At the scheduled start time, you’ll meet up with a local family who will welcome you into their home in Agra. Here, you’ll begin your culinary journey: learning about, preparing and tasting the delicacies of one of the world’s most delicious cuisines.
In your hosts’ house, you’ll be made to feel like one of the family. They’ll tell you all about the traditions behind Indian cookery, the ingredients and techniques that are most used across the country, and they’ll give you top tips to make your dishes as delicious as possible in true local style.
Guided by your hosts, you’ll then put your new knowledge into practice. Get stuck in in the kitchen, cooking typical recipes including jeera aloo, or potatoes spiced with cumin; Kadhai Paneer, cottage cheese in tomato curry; dal tadka, a spicy lentil dish; and semolina pudding, amongst other delicacies. See how many instructions you can remember to impress your friends with your cooking skills when you get back home!
Once all of the dishes are ready to eat, you’ll sit down at the family table and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Bon appetit!
