Chaat or savoury street food bought from roadside stalls and carts is a fundamental part of Indian food culture. Traditionally, chaat was based on different types of fried bread plus a curry and a garnish or chutney. However, food culture is not static and the range of foods found on the street has increased and brought in European influences.

9.45am - 3.30pm
On this course Nina and Sumita take us back to the core traditions. Although much of Indian street food is naturally vegan, where it is not, you will be shown adaptations. The course covers making fresh spice mixes and tempering in oil and then a range of street foods, using ingredients commonly used in India, are made. Dishes can include Chatpate Samosas, Kulcha Bread and Cholley.
As is our practice, the day will be a mixture of demonstration and hands-on workshop. Nina and Sumita are a full of sound advice and good humour so there will be lots of laughs too. At the end everyone gets to share the dishes cooked and take away anything left over along with a folder of the recipes.
