*Hands-on experience & tasting led by Veena Bansal

In this class, you’ll make butter chicken, also known as chicken makhani, a classic Indian dish. It’s chicken marinated in yogurt and aromatic spices simmered in a spicy, buttery, creamy tomato gravy.

For a side dish, you’ll learn to make baingan bharta, mashed cooked eggplant and tomatoes mixed with a flavorful blend of garlic, ginger, and warm Indian spices topped with fresh cilantro. Perfect for scooping onto the naan we’ll serve alongside it.

The meal will be served with raita, a cooling yogurt relish with cucumbers, and basmati rice flavored with jeera (cumin seeds) and turmeric.

Instructor: Veena Bansal I never ever thought that I would be teaching cooking classes. When I first told my mom she couldn’t stop laughing. By profession I am a fine art artist and over twenty years cooking has become my passion. It gives me the same kind of calmness as when I paint. Very therapeutic! Grinding fresh spices, bringing out different flavors, everything just changed for me. I enjoy entertaining and cooking for my friends and I always offer my help if anyone needs it. This is how my cooking journey started. I’ve taught cooking classes at Franklin Park Conservatory prior to the pandemic and I’m excited to continue teaching others.
