Introduction to Indian Breads

  • Eden Hall Campus, Dairy Barn Cafe 6035 Ridge Road Gibsonia, PA, 15044 United States (map)

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!
