It's good for you.


    • I've been wanting to take a class at Pansaari for a year and it did not disappoint! Rano exudes personality and warmth, passion and knowledge. I love to cook with Indian spices but there were several new ones I was introduced to. The sights and smells were incredible! I can't wait to replicate these recipes at home.

    • Rano was the most welcoming, kindhearted, knowledgeable chef. I felt like she transported us to her family's kitchen in India, while empowering us to cook with spices and fresh ingredients. I definitely laughed out loud a few times :-) Thank you so much!

      - Alex R.

    Indian Daal Class
    Wednesday, June 21
    6:30 - 8:30 PM
    $65 + Tax
    No Indian meal is complete without a serving of 'Daal'. There are as many ways of making Daals as there are people who make them. Every household has their own ways of making Daal. Not to mention, Daal can be made from a plethora of different lentils. They are nutritious (a good source of protein) and are quite delicious and comforting.

    At this class we will demonstrate three kinds of Daal using three different types of lentils:

    Safed sookhi daal: A traditional Punjabi daal made with white Urad lentil.
    Rajma: A popular breakfast daal made with red kidney beans served with rotis or parathas.
    Dhaaba daal: Indian highways are dotted with a unique roadside eatery called 'dhaaba's. These dhaabas have their own unique way of making daal. We will demonstrate a typical dhaaba daal which is enjoyed with rice or rotis.

    At the end of the class you will be able to relish these with rotis, rice, ghee, & pickle.
    RSVP – Please pay 5 days in advance to secure a spot in the class.

    The Vegetables Class
    Wednesday, June 28
    6:30 - 8:30 PM
    $65 + Tax
    Indian cuisine does not let vegetables be an accompaniment to meats, but rather anoints them as a central part of the main course.

    With a little help from our spices (and friends), let us show you how to cook them flavor-fully without losing the essence of the vegetable used in the dish.

    At this class we will demonstrate three seasonal vegetable dishes :
    * Aloo Matar: Peas and potatoes in a delicate light broth
    * Bhindi Amchoor : Fresh summer okra in dry mango powder and other spices
    * Baingan Bharta: Smoked spicy eggplant mash

    At the end of the class you will be able to relish these with the group!
