Exploring Marathi Cuisine *In-Person* *NEW*

Maharashtra is a large state on the central west coast of India, home to the cities of Mumbai and Pune and 112 million people, about 75% of them members of the Marathi community. Their cuisine encompasses elements of both North Indian and South Indian cooking and techniques, while also making use of a much broader selection of spices than we are used to seeing. Spices like cobra saffron and rock lichen, as well as curry leaf, which is not often found in the dishes we typically call "curry". We will make some Marathi and Koli masalas (spice blends) and use them to make both vegetarian and meat dishes. For fun, we can also play "Will It Curry?"--students can nominate an ingredient, and we will use Marathi recipes and techniques to make a dish. Instructor: Michael McComas
