What you will learn
Please join us as we welcome cookbook author and blogger Anupy Singla to the Sur La Table kitchen! In this special demonstration-style class, Anupy will help you understand which Indian spices to have on hand and how to make your own Indian spice blends. Once you have your seven to eight basic Indian spices (cumin seeds, coriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, red chile powder, mustard seeds, and kala namak (black salt), you’ll be making authentic Indian cuisine in no time, blowing away the myth that Indian food is complicated, exotic, or can only be made tastefully in a restaurant. You’ll also learn that healthy Indian food is not a misnomer – it’s the way a majority of Indians eat at home on a daily basis.
Anupy comes from a family passionate about cooking. Born in India and raised outside of Philadelphia, she grew up visiting her father’s childhood village in India. Her first cooking lesson was with her paternal grandfather who schooled her in traditional, spicy Punjabi-style cooking. It was this passion that convinced Anupy to leave her daily reporting job at CLTV to teach her young girls how to appreciate and eat good Indian food – much as her mother had done for her. She has written two cookbooks: The Indian Slow Cooker and Vegan Indian Cooking. You can read about her experiences on her blog, www.indianasapplepie.com.
