What we'll do

Have you ever wondered what the Indian culture has developed in terms of brunch food? If so, join Chef Teena in this hands-on class and learn all about the unique Indian brunch recipes & flavors! Forget about eggs benedict and mimosas - you'll experience tastes that you won't be able to get from other brunch cuisines! In this workshop, Chef Teena will teach you the secrets behind making TOFU SCRAMBLE, a pan fried tofu dish cooked with baby bell peppers, mushrooms, and red onion.. This is a great egg substitute and protein option. Next up, MASALADHAR ALLOO, boiled potatoes glazed with exotic spices. There's no brunch without potatoes in any world cuisine! BESAN POORAS, savory chickpea flour based pancakes with fresh veggies and spices. Instead of syrup, this savory pancake pairs with MINT/CILANTRO CHUTNEY, a fresh herb relish. Lastly, for something sweet, Chef Teena will teach you how to make SOOJI KA HALVA, a semolina flour dessert cooked in ghee and sugar, with dried berries and nuts. This breakfast/brunch menu will definitely spice up your weekend! Note: Chef Teena offers custom menus and private events.
