DESCRIPTION

Dal is the common term for the whole family of dried beans, peas and lentils used in Indian cooking. Nutrient-rich dals are great for both human and environmental health as they are a great source of protein and essential nutrients and can be grown without harsh agricultural practices. Dals are a staple in Indian cuisine, and each one has its own unique taste and texture, and by adding spices there is endless variety.

In this informative class, you will learn how to make four very different and delicious regional dals and a lentil chutney from India. You will work with spices common in Indian cuisine, and learn to enhance the flavor of spices by making a tarka (spices fried in oil or ghee). You will also learn simple techniques for soaking and sprouting lentils and beans.

Along with the dals made in class, you will also get to sample a few lentil-based snacks and chutneys from India and take home all the recipes as well as an Oaktown Spice Shop dal kit!
