|Assisting the Chef to prepare Indian starter and Italian Salad.|
Firstly he started the workshop with Indian dishes, few starters like vegetable steam dumpling, cutlets with black beans, koftas, brinjal and capsicum stuffed. My favorite was Biryani, its really an art to make them, I have never attempted making biryani in my kitchen, but after this workshop have confidence to try and share.

Got to learn few salads and starters and main course dishes. Italian dishes are made by using different cheeses and olive oils, without these 2 ingredients Italian dishes would be incomplete. Recipes are real simple but names are really hard to pronounce. Also made a sweet dish with cheese and coconut milk. Along with pizza and pastas, I'll be trying out these newly learnt dishes.

Main ingredients in Thai cooking are coconut milk and spicy red and green chillies. After Indian food I am very fond of Thai foods, reason being its spicy like Indian food. Loved all the recipes tasted during the workshop. Specially chef made a simple salad with raw papaya which tasted very delicious. Made dishes with tofu and every famous Pad Thai and Thai green curry. These day all the required items for international cooking is available in stores like Nature's Nectar and Organic Planet. Both the stores are based in Mysore.

Tried and tasted all the recipes with lots of interaction with chef and fellow Mysoreans. Most of us wanting to eat and learn more stayed till late and finally said good byes. I'll be looking forward to more such workshops here.
Soon will start adding recipes on this blog.
