Join us for a hands-on Indian bread making class! This class will be exploring two traditional Indian breads: Chappathi (Roti), an unleavened flat bread, and Masala Dosa, a South Indian specialty made of fermented rice and lentil batter filled with Indian style potatoes.
Participants will also learn about Indian cooking and spices, and will also be making a chutney to be eaten with the dosa.
Each participant will leave with dosa batter and the knowledge of how to make these breads at home!
Please bring a container to take home dosa batter.
