What you'll do

This interactive experience starts with a drink and a chat to get to know each other. We’ll then get onto a starter (either veda or potato bhajia). While snacking on the starter, we’ll get down to making a fragrant and delicious Durban style curry. Then we’ll make roti (this is an indian flatbread and it is perfect for scooping the delicious gravy of a curry). Following this, we’ll get onto a making a scrumptious indian dessert. Once we’ve prepared everything, we’ll sit down together and enjoy the meal. I’m excited to welcome you into my home and share this experience with you.

I am a stay at home mum and I love nothing more than being in the kitchen…cooking and baking for my family and seeing the smiles on my kid’s faces when their favourite meal is prepared. I grew up eating curry and rice for breakfast, lunch and supper and now that I’m married, it’s no different because I still love curry and rice…yes, even for breakfast. I look forward to sharing my passion for Indian food with you.

The experience was good but not what we expected. If you don’t have a clue about cooking Indian curries, this is a good first step. However, if you’re looking for a more detailed culinary experience and interaction - for example, learning more about the spices used or the preparation of the ingredients used - this isn’t the experience for you. So if, for instance, you’d like to find out what goes into garamasala, and how to mix it, you won’t get that level of detail. Or measurements of certain spices. That said, Nalani is a lovely person, and the end result was absolutely delicious.

What a wonderful way to experience my favourite cuisine. The recipes were simple enough, Nalani was warm and welcoming, I learned to make the perfect roti and we had a super late lunch. Our host followed up with an email afterwards which was a nice touch.

What an awesome experience! My team and I joined Nalani for the cooking experience as a team building, and we had so much fun! Cooking, laughing, learning, eating - it was altogether a lovely afternoon. Nalani is very patient and we enjoyed learning from her. And the food...! Worth it just for that 😋
