About
Mumbai is home to a plethora of diverse cultures and cuisines. Since it is situated along the coast, it means there is an extensive list of seafood that you can enjoy. One of the most cherished cuisines to enjoy the flavours of the sea is Malvani cuisine. Why just stop at savouring those flavours when you can also learn how to make the dishes, that too from a local? Join Pallavi at her beautiful home in Bandra, Mumbai for a fun day of cooking and eating Malvani food, the local food from her town of Malvan, from the Southern part of the state of Maharashtra (of which Mumbai is the capital). She will teach you to make the iconic Malvani style fish fry among other dishes and you can later join her and her family for a delicious Malvani fare! The whole experience will last for 3-4 hours.

What to expect
  • Mumbai being a Megapolis, has people from various regions and cultures living harmoniously. The coastal cuisine of Maharashtra, the Malvani cuisine has its set of distinct food preparations and ingredients that makes it stand out from the crowd. All this and many more insights will be provided by Pallavi during the cooking session. You can ask her everything that you possibly want to know about the Malvani culture and cuisine, she will answer with a big smile on her face. Meet Pallavi at her beautiful home in Bandra West, Mumbai and she will instantly make you feel at home! Enjoy a welcome drink and get to know her and her family better. Post that you can join Pallavi in her open kitchen and learn the tips and tricks of Indian cooking. Pallavi will tell you about the various spices she uses in her cooking and will show you some techniques to cook the seafood perfectly. she will teach you to cook an amazing Indian fish fry and fish curry and a popular Indian dessert - Ukdiche Modak (steamed dumplings stuffed with coconut and jaggery). What you will get to enjoy in Pallavi’s meal are Malvani treasures such as Sol Kadhi (kokum fruit and coconut milk), Bombil (Bombay Duck) in Green Gravy, Malvani Chicken Curry and Ukdiche Modak (steamed dumplings stuffed with coconut and jaggery). The cuisine tends to incline towards the spicy side but the Sol Kadhi is always there to soothe your taste buds and it is so delicious that you would want to go back for multiple helpings of the drink. Enjoy your cooking session and a hearty meal with Pallavi and her family! This will surely make your day! :) Please note: Pallavi stays on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator in the building, so you will have to climb 3 flight of stairs to get to her home. Luckily the climb up will be a good appetite booster and the descent after completion of this delightful meal will be the perfect exercise :) This is not a professional cooking class but rather an opportunity to learn the tips and tricks of Indian cooking and experience authentic Indian food with a local.
