Authentic Indian cookery classes for lovers of Indian food!

Whether you are a kitchen novice or an experienced family cook, you will find that an Absolute Indian cookery class will provide you with inspiration and ideas of how to create authentic Indian recipes that are easily achievable in your own home. The classes are designed not only to teach you how to cook Indian food but also to break down the fear of spices which so many of us have!

Absolute Indian provides authentic Indian cookery classes for lovers of Indian food. Classes run in St Albans, Hertfordshire. During a class, curry lovers will go through an introduction to ingredients and spices and then a hands-on cookery lesson for 3-4 hours.

Part of the class is spent going through the spices you will be using to help you familiarise yourself with the different flavours, aromas and strengths of each one. Then onto the cooking itself! You will cook five authentic Indian dishes (dishes dependant on which class you choose) all of which you will take home to share with your loved ones! (Dont worry, you wont need to bring any tupperware with you!)

Classes run for approximately three and a half hours and are held in St Albans. There are a maximum of six people per class so you will receive lots of individual attention. All cookery lessons include ingredients, recipe cards to take home with you, use of aprons and of course, and a delicious lunch to take home! Why not take a look at all the classes coming up on the website and see which class tickles your taste buds the most?

Sheba Promod tells Hertfordshire Life about how the idea for her business came to fruition.

Absolute Indian has stemmed primarily from my passion for cooking! I love to cook anything really but Indian cooking is what I was brought up on and what I spent many hours watching my mum doing.

Before having my daughter in 2008, I had been a secondary school teacher for 5 years. I took my full allocation of maternity leave with Isabelle and then a further year leave of absence in order to spend more time with her. I returned to work in June 2010 which coincided with the beginning of Absolute Indian.

Combining my love for Indian cooking with my love for teaching I came up with the idea of Absolute Indian cookery classes!

I started the ball rolling 3 months ago and have loved every minute of it. Ive found that I have skills in areas I never knew! Suddenly Ive found I have the IT, Marketing, Finance, Sales and general admin positions within my business! Of course, its hard work as you have to do everything yourself but if its something you love, youll find the time! One of fun parts of the promotions I have been doing is the cookery demonstrations at selected events this is where people can watch a demonstration of a particular dish being cooked and then have a taste. It gets people talking and allows me to meet a lot of my potential customers.

I have to admit, it has not been easy juggling both teaching and this as well fitting everything else that parents have to do (I wont even attempt to start the list!) but organisation, a supportive husband, late nights and a passion for what Im doing means I manage to get things done. Also, all my classes are scheduled during the weekends and holidays which is perfect for me and for all those who work and love to cook!

If you love Indian food and would like to learn how to cook authentic Indian dishes, why not book onto an Absolute Indian cookery class? There are a range of 4 different classes such as Divine Dinner Party, weekday winners, Indian Vegetarian as well as a Kosher curry class being added soon. Classes include no more than 6 people and participants are not required to bring anything but enthusiasm! You take home recipe cards for each dish you have prepared as well as all the food you have made. Classes are just 75 per person.
