What you'll do

We shall start this experience with a cool and refreshing glass of seasonal drink.
Make yourself comfortable while we chat a little and relish some local appetizers I would have prepared for you.

After you have made yourself comfortable, we shall put out aprons on and get cooking. We would be learning 1 appetizer, 1 main and 1 salad.
The class will last for 70-90minutes.

You would be surely hungry by now, so we would head to the dining area to relish the local delicacies that I have cooked for you. All the food would be cooked using local ingredients and filtered water. The food would be served in a traditional manner, in a Thali.
Other things to note
My home is around 45mins from South Mumbai and 10 mins from the International airport by car.
The meal experience will happen at my family home and would be very authentic.

Born and brought up in Mumbai, I am a complete foodie at heart. My passion for cooking started at a very young age, by watching mother cook in the kitchen when I was supposed to be studying. Understanding and trying the local spice powders, mixes made me experiment with flavours. I started my home catering company to give people a taste of my love for food.
I have hosted people from different parts of the world like USA, Australia, Germany, France and South East Asia via Travellingspoon. I have enjoyed every meal experience and hope to continue spreading the joy of cooking and eating authentic Indian food.

We really enjoyed having a real experience about how local people buy ingredients and cook. At the market, Reahma told us each vegetables, fruits, and spice in detail. That unique experience helped us imagine the whole process from buying ingredients to cooking dishes. During cooking, Reshma was always kind and told us lot of things. We got the recipe from her so we can cook dishes after getting back to my country. I highly recommend this class.

Reshma and her brother are wonderful hosts! We were in Mumbai for Thanksgiving and wanted to do something unique for our Thanksgiving meal. Reshma was accommodating about allowing us to be 6 people and start later and was all around wonderful. She is a professional caterer and does these cooking classes on the side so she is very knowledgeable about her ingredients and cooking techniques. You will make two dishes and Reshma provides the rest of the meal. The trip to the market is a hoot trying to flag down a tuktuk, which can be hard in rush hour traffic, but the trip to the market is well worth it because Reshma knows so much about the different vegetables and herbs that are unique to Indian cooking like sweet carrots and spiky cucumbers. She also knows all about the different types of chilies and grains and how to select them, so if you like spicy food and the different Indian breads she can teach you what you need. I recommend this class if you’re looking for a different experience than just going to a restaurant.

Reshma was a great cooking instructor and led a great market tour. We tried some local street food, learned about local varieties of produce, and had an informative and tasty cooking class in the comfort of her home. We made 3 dishes and she had prepared in advance a few other parts of the meal which meant we could try so many different bites. This was a great class and a highlight from our visit to Mumbai!

Had a really nice experience with Reshma- she took us on a local market tour where she explained the various produce in depth and we also tried some street snacks that were very good. Then we cooked some delicious dishes in her home and left feeling very full! Reshma is a lovely host and clearly very passionate about food. Highly recommend!
