Learning Indian with Soul Cocina's Roger Feely
What's the coolest way in the city to learn how to make saag paneer? Through Soul Cocina's Roger Feely cooking classes at Jharna's Kitchen, without a doubt.
Jun Belen Roger Feely.
Last weekend we donned our aprons, rolled up our sleeves, and, for $50, joined an intimate class of foodies to learn how to make delicious homemade Indian food from Feeley and West Bengal native Jharna Mookherjee (aka Auntie Jharna).
We toasted spices and chiles and made our own garam masala, a blend of ground spices common in Indian and South Asian cuisine, which we used to make tasty chicken kofta with mint chutney, chicken curry, and saag paneer.
In all his classes, Feely charmingly mixes hands-on instructions with interesting stories from his rich experience as a culinary instructor in Goa, India. He also shares a lot of cool of cooking tips, from roasting whole coconuts to making homemade paneer, as well as tips on where he shops for spices and ingredients. He keeps his classes small and very relaxed, and delicious food is always guaranteed. Stay tuned to SFoodie for information on future classes.
