Tasty In­dian cook­ing classes are well re­ceived

South Waikato News - - Out & About - LUKE KIRKEBY

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.
