The kitchen is statistically the most dangerous room in a home because it contains the highest concentration of knives, open flames, and pots full of semi-living lobsters. Learn to navigate this danger zone with today’s Groupon for cooking classes from Mala’s Indian Cooking Classes, held at the Wilbraham Inn. Choose between the following options:

  • For $49, you get a three-hour Indian street-fare cooking class (a $98 value).
  • For $89, you get two three-hour Indian street-fare cooking classes (a $189 value).

Under the guidance of nutritionist and chef Mala Patel, students spice up culinary repertoires by creating homemade, multicourse Indian dinners. Part demonstration and part hands-on cooking extravaganza, Street Side Foods from India courses steer students down culinary boulevards lined with zesty finger foods and tourists looking for the Taj Mahal’s storied restroom. Throughout the course of the 2.5-hour session, up to 10 students can harness the power of spices, potatoes, and peas to assemble samosas or conjure zesty lentil fritters flavored with ginger, garlic, and green chilis. Patel assists culinary pupils in preparing pav bhaji, a saucy vegetable paste on buttered and grilled bread, which stands in for its cousin, the sloppy joe, during vegetarian meals or whenever sloppy joe desires to experience life on the street.

Mala's Indian Cooking Classes

Nutritionist and chef Mala Patel guides participants through a demonstration and hands-on, introductory class that covers essential spices and techniques of Indian cooking. Sessions such as classic vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine, Street Side Foods and a samosa workshop ensure fingers don't get bored and wander onto other people's plates. Small classes consisting of no more than 10 chefs-in-training intimately explore meat and veggie dishes flavored by aromatic spices, garlic, ginger, and green chilies. Students use fresh, ingredients to prepare a meal from scratch and leave with a folder of all recipes covered during the class.

Customer Reviews

I went with a group of friends/family and had a wonderful time. We learned a lot about the various spices used in Indian cooking, and the food was delicious. Mala is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor!

super fun!

The only tip I can share is that you should be prepared for more demonstration than active cooking. This being said, I still learned a lot and brought home information so I can recreate the meal at home. I hope to attend more of her classes!
