Master the art of Indian cooking as chef Roopa Gulati shares her culinary secrets at Borough Market
Chef, food writer and broadcaster Roopa Gulati will begin her residency at Borough Market from tomorrow (Thursday 1st September) - taking us on a tour of some of India’s most interesting regions and demonstrating some key techniques.
Brought up in Cumbria, Roopa crossed continents and worked as a chef in New Delhi's kitchens, where she cooked in huge hotels, street bazaars, palace kitchens, TV studios and on stoves across India.
Roopa’s weekly themes will be:
Thursday 1st September: Punjab
Hearty grilled meats, robust masalas, dairy, and plenty of onion-garlic-ginger. Punjabi cooking is the most popular of regional Indian cooking exports.
Thursday 8th September: Bengal
A region noted for its fondness for mustard (in all its guises), fish and panch phoran spicing—Kolkata’s very own five-spice mix.
Thursday 15th September: Kerala
Tropical seafood and fish preparations simmered in coconut; tamarind masalas scented with locally grown spices—cardamom, ginger, chillies, peppercorns.
Thursday 22nd September: Gujarat
Known for its vegetarian street food and love of sweet-tangy flavours.
Thursday 29th September: Rajasthan
A desert region, which combines royal cooking styles with spicy vegetarian dishes favoured by the Marwari business community.
Join Roopa Gulati for tips, tastings and recipes every Thursday in September in the Market Hall, 12:30-2pm.
