For my birthday we attended, with the 10 of us, one of Mandira’s cooking classes. It was very well run, we enjoyed it immensely and of course the food was amazing.. really admired Mandira’s entrepreneurial spirit and the information provided was easily understood, even for an anaemic cook like myself! No hesitation in recommending this learning experience.


The biggest challenge for me cooking proper Indian food was the complexity and range of spices and ingredients and how to handle them. Mandira totally demystified and simplified the whole process. Exactly what you need to make awesome Indian cuisine. Thank you! Also how to cook rice properly without washing out the flavour or burning it to the base of a pan. That alone is enough to make the whole thing worthwhile. Brilliant 🙂

Fantastic veggie cooking course! We booked this as a group of friends and had a wonderful evening. Mandira was incredibly knowledgeable and great fun to learn from. The evening started with chai and samosas on the patio overlooking silent pool and an introduction to Indian spices and spice blends. We then worked along side Mandira making 5. Vegetarian dishes. The food was really fresh and tasty. We needed the evening sitting out on the patio enjoying the banquet we had prepared followed by Mandira’s amazing ice cream. Over all a wonderful evening and great way to learn the basics of cooking with Indian spices.
