What you'll do

We'll cook a delicious Indian Curry together & I will show you how to build layers of flavour with every ingredient you throw into a pot. We will also make a delicately spiced rice dish (Pulao) to accompany the curry. Vegetarian & vegan options are available & by the end of the workshop, you would have prepared an amazing meal in your kitchen with guidance from me every step of the way! My menu changes often & features a different spectacular Indian curry every few weeks.

THIS WEEK: a mellow, coastal style coconut based curry
SOUTH-INDIAN CHICKEN / VEG KORMA with CASHEW PULAO

Once you book the experience, you will receive a list of ingredients to prep. The agenda is simple - we chat for a bit, get to know one another & then start cooking. My style is laid-back & folks are free to chat, ask questions & interact as we cook. After cooking, I will also show you how to plate up & shoot that perfect photo for your Instagram / Facebook / Tinder profile. A fun way to spend a birthday / anniversary / special occasion!

This is an excellent team building activity too, perfect for company offsites & corporate team bonding exercises.

My name is Dhruv Shanker, but they call me the Mad Onion Slicer. I'm a former professional chef and am dead serious about having fun in the kitchen. I’ve been running a cooking class called the Boring Indian Food Workshop since 2019, and while I personally think it’s pretty awful, the staggering number of folks who gave it 5 stars seem to have enjoyed it. To my utter amazement - I was selected to be one of Airbnb’s top 5 Cooking hosts globally last year!

I’ve been writing a light-hearted food blog for many years now, and teach people how to produce food that’s simple to cook and absolutely delicious. You can look me up on Instagram (@madonionslicer) to see what my food looks like. Everyone who’s tried my recipes has survived to tell the happy tale!

Dhruv is a fantastic host and the Chicken Korma with cashew rice we made was *delicious*. Dhruv makes it fun and walks you through each step with ease, making it a fun and interactive experience. You also get some great views of Singapore City from his balcony while you're at it.

Chef Dhruv is the best. He is an incredible host, full of great information and humor in a really fun cooking class. I would recommend his class to anyone, but particularly to families wanting to get together and cook, even though they may be far away from one another. This brought my family together from Maine, New York, New Orleans, Los Angeles and South Korea, and was a complete home run as a birthday gift to my octogenarian mother. Highly, highly recommend - as long as you don't book him when we want to do it again with my wife's family...

Oh my! So much better than I expected. The host is extremely personable and knows his stuff. He guided us through everything in detail, he didn’t rush and made sure everything was in order before going to the next step. And, we’ll, la piece de resistance, the final product was just so delicious! I can’t wait to do it on my own. I’m very happy with this experience!
