What you'll do

Pallavi welcomes you to her beautiful home in the Mumbai suburb of Bandra West. This experience is an immersive cooking class wherein Pallavi will teach you to cook 2-3 Malvani dishes. The cooking class will then be followed by an authentic meal. This is a predominantly non-vegetarian meal and can be modified to suit vegetarians as well. Below is the menu: # Bombil in green gravy (soft pieces of Bombay duck cooked in a flavourful green coconut curry) # Fish fry # Malvani sukka chicken (a dry preparation of chicken) # Accompaniments like rice, chapati (Indian flat bread), salad ...And much more!! The whole experience at Pallavi’s home can last for about 3 hours. Please note - This is not a professional cooking class but rather an opportunity to cook and dine with a local home-chef. The experience will be as much about the stories around the food and local culture, as it would be about the meal itself. Kindly note that there is no elevator and Pallavi's apartment is on the 3rd floor; luckily the climb up will be a good appetite booster and the descent after completion of this delightful meal will be the perfect exercise :)
