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!

The "boring" Indian curry cooking class was anything but boring! Dhruv did a wonderful job of sharing the history and stories of the delicious curry dishes we made together, and with such charm and patience! Thank you, Dhruv, for introducing me to the yummy world of curry - I can't wait to learn more and experiment with these recipes on my own!

It was the funniest and the most friendly online cooking workshop that I ever had in my life! He taught me some important tips for making curry in general. He explained things deeply with a lot of stories behind it which made me remember the tips easily. I felt he loves cooking so much and interact with people around the world. Highly recommended!

Took this class with my 4year old toddler and we had so much fun! Dhruv is engaging and open to questions along the way. The food was delicious, simple and not too complicated to make. These recipes will be a staple in our home. Fun experience while staying at indoors!
