Choose a Date

  Available     Full     Unavailable

In a nutshell

Creamy, spicy and rich, vegetable korma is a much-loved Indian dish. This coconut milk-based curry, made with cardamom, cashew nuts and spices, including turmeric and Kashmiri red chilli powder, can be rustled up in just under 90 minutes alongside chef Akash.

Whether veggie korma is your go-to takeaway or you’ve yet to try it, Akash will walk you through a step-by-step cooking process as he educates you on its flavour profiles and history. Neer dosa, India’s version of the crepe, is also on the menu and it's a recipe you’ll master as the curry simmers away.

When you've mastered these dishes, have a go at making two more Indian classics: Biryani with Raita, and Naan Bread with Mutter Paneer.

What others had to say

"It was really wonderful to be able to ask Akasha questions directly and it really felt as if we were cooking together. He talked me through every step very thoroughly and explained anything I didn't understand. The recipes were easy to prepare for and also to prepare. I'll definitely use the techniques he showed me (dry roasting spices, how to make the batter for dosas) again. Getting to meet and learn from him, especially when I was in the States and he was in Mumbai, was a wonderful experience."

Laurie Porter, Massachusetts
