Indian Bread Making


Breads are an integral part of Indian cuisine being eaten alongside the main meal as they are the perfect vehicle for scooping up a delicious curry or daal. They are also enjoyed as snacks in Indian culture with parathas and puris being breakfast staples.

Although Indian breads are hugely popular many cooks are wary of attempting them believing that they are too tricky to accomplish. In fact most breads are very straightforward when you can see how they are made, in particular for recipes such as parathas where the folding methodology can be tricky or the rolling technique for chapattis. Having that expert hand to guide you through the stages is essential.

In this class you will learn how to make a variety of the most popular breads such as the softest chapattis, delicious flaky stuffed parathas, light and crispy puris, authentic naans without the aid of a tandoor and methi theplas with fresh fenugreek. You will be getting hands on with the dough in order to understand the consistency and texture as well rolling it out correctly with one to one guidance.

You’ll get to enjoy the fruits of your labour when we break for lunch, when you will sample some of the breads you have made alongside some delicious accompaniments created by our chefs. There’ll be plenty of leftovers for you to take home to impress your family and friends with.

This class is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

All classes are held at our Rickmansworth venue, WD3 1JR
