Last week, I gave my first ever ‘open to public – register – limited spaces only’ type cooking course. Previously, the courses I gave were for groups of people from a certain workplace. In that context, last week’s course was a new-to-me experience. The participants were very enthusiastic to try different & ethnic food. Some of them, even attempted to eat with their right hand! I was so happy with how the day progressed 🙂
The course lasts 4 hours & 30 minutes but the group finished all the tasks – cooking, eating & cleaning in 4 hours!
Menu 1: Papad, Vangibath, Cucumber Raitha, Chickpea salad & Semiya Payasam.
Menu 2: Papad, Jeera Rice, Babycorn-Capsicum Masala, Kachumber salad & Semiya Payasam.
(Sorry, I do not have photos of all the menu items & some photos didn’t turn out well.)
The food turned out good, spice level was not too high. The funny thing was one group used 2 & another 4 chillies in their cooking but both had similar spice level! Some chillies from the same batch are extremely hot – just 1 would be enough & some are as mentioned. I wonder how I can figure out the hotness of each chilli!
