Announcing a South Indian cooking class!

Sambhar, a South Indian lentil curry

It’s been a bit quiet around Veena’s Market…this is because I’ve taken a break to start up a nonprofit called Project Feast. We work with refugees and immigrants in the Seattle area, offer basic training that helps them find jobs in the food industry.

This is one of the hardest and most fulfilling “jobs” I’ve ever had. We’re a long way from being fully established but working really hard to make a difference and show strong results from the beginning.

As part of our work at Project Feast, we like to offer cooking classes and events where we can help provide exposure to the refugee and immigrant community and create opportunities for interaction with the broader Seattle community. These events also help us generate a small amount of revenue to support our training programs.

Since I can teach Indian cooking classes, I’m doing my bit too! Next week, I’ll be offering a Dosa making extravaganza at the Fremont Abbey.

We will be making the popular Masala Dosas with a curried potato filling as well as Kheema Dosas that are stuffed with curried ground meat. We will have the South Indian lentil curry called Sambhar as well as a couple of chutneys as accompaniments. You will leave with recipes as well as some of the ingredients so you can repeat the dishes at home. Tickets are $55 and the classes will be held at the downstairs kitchen at the Fremont Abbey in Seattle.

For more information and to buy tickets.
