Brooklyn, NY , United States

About Your Host

I grew up in Calcutta, India and learned to cook from my mother and aunt. In 1986, I moved to the U.S. with my husband Partha to work as a biologist. In 2006, I retired from the nine-to-five routine so that I could work full-time on my dream – bringing the flavors and the benefits of Indian cooking to all New Yorkers. My family and friends have been telling me for years that my cooking is so good that I should let others try it too. Two years ago I decided they were right, and Mukti’s Kitchen was born. Mukti’s Kitchen offers cooking classes, lecture-demonstrations and catering services. I focus on Indian food, Indian cooking and healthy eating. I use authentic, modern Indian techniques, with adjustments for American kitchens and any dietary restrictions. Come to Mukti’s Kitchen to learn how to cook an entire meal or just one special dish. Let me teach you the basics of healthy Indian-style cooking, from the names and special characteristics of Indian spices, to the secrets that will give you the best flavor. And, if you’d love to serve a special Indian meal to your family or friends but don’t feel ready to cook it yourself, I’ll cater it for you!

What we'll do

What you'll learn in this indian cooking class: Healthy and delicious is always appealing to everyone’s palates. There are many secrets to a make a healthy yet delicious dish, and you will learn those secrets. For this Secrets of Healthy Indian Cooking class, the main dish will be coastal shrimp curry. What you will learn: Coastal shrimp curry is easy to cook: fresh shrimp cooked with aromatic spices and coconut that will give it a rich, tropical flavor. You will love the taste and aroma. Kashmiri cuisine is truly unique and a work of art, something one must try in their life. Kashmiri lamb kebobs is a signature dish of the Kashmiri cuisine and lamb is often the highlight of a Kashmiri meal. The exquisite taste of this dish comes from my secret masala recipe. Curry dishes are always a favorite in Indian cuisine, the deep and savory flavors come from the blend of spices. Mung lentils curry is a dish that one must try for a down to earth experience. The savory curry flavor combined with an earthy flavor from the mung lentils will indulge one’s heart and mind. A lot of heavy and savory dishes can be a little overwhelming, so the next two dishes, Dahi Okra and pulao will balance our palates. Dahi okra is an easy dish cooked with onions, ginger, and yogurt masala; the refreshing taste from the yogurt masala and the light flavor from the okra will balance this whole menu out. Pulao is a rice dish consisted of mixed vegetables, cashew, and raisin. This rice dish will calm your palates down with the lightness of the rice and it’s sweet flavors from the raisin. After cooking all the above dishes, we will sit down together, and enjoy the wonderful meal we just cooked. Note: There's a minimum of three students for the class to run. If the minimum is not met, Mukti will personally reach out to reschedule via phone or email.
