Whenever you have the opportunity to be invited into somebody’s home to learn about their culture, and more importantly learn to cook their food, you have to jump at the chance. Our host and guide welcomed us to her parents home in New Delhi with open arms, loving hearts and a mini feast. Dispelling the myth that Indian cooking requires tons of ingredients and time, our cooking lesson included pakoras, paneer masala, and puri, a meal that I think I could cook at home too.

An excellent way to get to realy know the people! My delightful guide Komal picked me up at my hotel and whisked me away in an airconditioned car to her northwestern Dehli home where I met her parents, grandma and younger brother - all anxious to practice their Engish while "mama" taught me how simple it was to try my hand at making a lovely veggie Indian meal! The food was great and the hands-on experience couldn't have been more fun! I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting Delhi as a great way to REALLY see beyond the India Gate and the swarming traffic into the real heart of India!
