Meet your host Vimala at her beautiful home in Porur, Chennai and enjoy a refreshing drink called Panagham - A traditional refreshing drink made with jaggery, lemon, dry ginger powder served during festivals (lord Rama's birthday or last day of Navratri) in temples of Tamil Nadu.
Post that Vimala will show you how to cook the temple cuisine, also known as Prasad or Prasadam. ’Prasad" literally means a gracious gift. It denotes anything, typically food, that is first offered to a deity and then distributed in his or her name to their followers or others as a good sign. Home-chef Vimala will give you a taste of some of the most delicious and pure prasadam spread offered in various temples of South India.
Roll up your sleeves and get ready to learn something exciting from your host Vimala. There is nothing better than enjoying the fruits of your labour and getting to know some secrets to cooking the best temple food and local Chennai favourites like medhu bonda, dosa, ven pongal and filter coffee.
The entire experience at Vimala’s home can last for about 2-4 hours.
Please note: This is not a professional cooking class. This is an unique opportunity to interact with a local and learn some tips and tricks of Indian cooking and enjoy a lovely home-cooked meal over great conversions.
