Dal Bhat (Nepalese Curries and Rice) on 3 Feb 2018 – Vegan Option available!

February 3 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


We also run 6-hour Nepalese courses at Chorlton & Didsbury

What will you cook in the 4hr session?…

Learn how to combine basic cooking skills and a few spices to create either ‘masu’ (chicken curry) or tarkari (vegetable curry), 3 varieties of ‘achhar’ (vegetable side dishes, a traditional dal (lentil soup) and perfect ‘bhat’ (fluffy white rice). By the end of the session, you should be well equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to continue to create tasty, Nepalese style curries at home. This 4-hour session will teach you how to transform everyday, local produce into a range of authentic Nepalese curries.

The main dish of Nepal is known as ‘dal bhat’.  It is eaten by everyone in the country, twice a day, everyday.  The literal translation of dal bhat is ‘lentil rice’, and it is these two components that are the cornerstones of the meal. Flavour and variety is added to the meal through the addition of curries and pickles, and every man, woman and child in the country will have their own style and specialist dishes.  So, whilst it may sound like a very repetitive diet, in reality, it’s far from it. In fact, once you’ve tasted the dishes, and learned how to use the ingredients to make your own curries, you may even be tempted to follow suit!
