What to expect
  • This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Mala and her husband Rajnish will welcome you into their warm and beautiful home, which is decorated with plants, lights and Mala’s art work. If you visit during the evening hours you will also meet her children. After you sip on your jaljeera (a refreshing appetizer made with water and cumin seed powder) and get to know the family, Mala will take you to the Sarojini Nagar market, a one-stop destination for all of your home needs. This is Mala’s favourite place to shop in for the freshest fruits and vegetables at a reasonable price. After the market tour, you can expect to learn from your host Mala how to make 2-3 of the dishes you will be eating. She may teach you how to make palak paneer (spinach and fresh cheese), roti (flat bread) and raita (spiced yoghurt) or puri aloo (spicy potato gravy served with puffed, deep fried Indian bread). You can expect to be cooking for 1 hour before you share the meal you helped prepare over conversation with your host.

Tivemos uma excelente experiência com Shivani. Foi uma boa oportunidade de conhecer um pouco da cultura local através de sua culinária. Shivani foi muito solícita com nossas perguntas e trouxe diversas boas respostas. Nos ensinou não apenas sobre a culinária da Índia mas também sobre aspectos de comportamento local e tradições.

Uma experiência que recomendo.
