Tasty Indian cooking classes are well received
A delicious aroma filled the air during the Indian cooking classes’ end of term dinner at Tokoroa High School.
Run by Mohan Lal over the last seven weeks, the dinner was a chance for his students to bring along a dish to share that they had learnt how to make during his lessons.
That included the likes of paneer masala, butter chicken, naan bread, and biryani.
Lal, who has taught internationally with a hospitality qualification, has been running the classes since 2000 and usually runs them once a term at the high school.
He said the six students who took part in his latest class really enjoyed it.
‘‘It has gone fantastic. All the students learnt how to make seven different dishes from scratch and did so very well so today is a celebration of our end of term,’’ he said.
One of those students Luke Tavai said he’d thoroughly enjoyed taking part.
‘‘It has been fun, I have learnt how to cook which has been a new experience for me,’’ he said.
There was plenty of food to go around and the students were each presented with small karahi bowls to remember their participation in the classes.
