  • Duration: 3 Hours
  • Location: PYRMONT, NSW

Forget everything you think you know about Indian food. We've called in Bhavna, the modern Desi, to give us an authentic lesson in all-things Indian home cooking.

From Keralan Curry to Zucchini Raita, this class will dive into traditional dishes that you might never have heard of before, but will soon know how to recreate at home.

Bhavna Kalra Shivalkar has a passion for sharing Indian cuisine with Australians, and spends her time crafting new fusion recipes, writing food columns for publications like SBS, launching pop-up restaurants and hosting cooking classes. Obviously, she's the perfect person to run this special edition hands-on Masterclass.

  • How to use traditional spices in the right quantities, to gently build authentic flavour.
