Over the past 15 years, Sushma has been providing cooking classes to foreign guests who have travelled to India from all different parts of the world. If you sign up for one of her classes, you will enhance your knowledge of cuisine, develop your own cooking skills and indulge yourself in an unforgettable, traditional Rajasthani celebration of food under the guidance of this passionate and experienced teacher! Sushma’s love for cooking began at the young age of 10 while watching her grandmother cook traditional Indian meals for her family. After dipping into many spice jars and creating her own unique Indian dishes, Sushma quickly found her place in the kitchen. Sushma admits she truly is a lover of food and for this reason when she is in the kitchen, she appears as graceful and contented as a queen in her palace. She is most alive and vibrant when sharing the wealth of knowledge she has about food with others who have an appreciation for food.

We had a great time at Sushma's cooking class. We made 2 currys, masala chai, roti, parantha and aloo jeera. All delicious and picked up some great tips on how to make a good curry. Not as hands on as I would have liked but still very fun and you learn a lot. Come hungry

Sushma's cooking class is not the cheapest in the area but boy did we get more than our monies worth. For 1500 INR per person you get a 2 hour cooking course where you learn how to cook 3 curries, parantha, chappatti , two kinds of masala as well as chai. Sushma also gave us tips on how to make...

I stayed at Hotel Krishna Niwas which is run by Sushma and her family, and her cooking classes were recommended by a friend who had been there before. What a cool experience! The kitchen is quaint and homely - also clean and stocked with such interesting cookware and spices. I'm a very visual person so already my mouth started watering!... More

I love how Sushma hands around tasting plates once a meal is complete, it reinforces ones learning as you go. Of course at the end you get to eat all the food she has made. You are offered to come and help with various aspects of the cooking but it is not hands on so to speak. Her family come... More

Amazing cooking class. Sushma is a great cook, speaks English fluently and is quite knowledgable when it comes to Indian cuisine. Inexpensive and interesting class. Would definitely recommend it to all travelers. Best chai I tasted in all of India.

My boyfriend and I spent two hours learning the ins and outs of Northern Indian cooking with Sushma. Very relaxed and informative class. Food was delicious and cooked to our liking (chilli hot, not too much sugar). The power flicked off a few times but this didn't stop us from cooking on the gas top! Excellent value for money, a...

Attended Sushma's cooking class together with a French couple. Very professional, no nonsense, educational course which also provided an insight into the restaurants' tricks. I think I learned exactly what I needed to give Indian cooking at home a go. The food we cooked by the way was delicious.

Sushma's cooking class was great! She was very accommodating for our desires since we cook a lot of Indian food at home. She taught us how to make South Indian food and gave us the freedom to pick the menu which we wanted to learn. The one north Indian dish we learned was butter paneer was amazing with coconut, almonds,... More
