Authentic Indian Cooking with Manoj

Curry - It’s an umbrella term used by the Asians for gravy – which is made with a combination of spices and Herbs. In these classes we will focus on some ingredients that make these, the use of them, the flavours & the combination, so by the end of it you can try your own combinations. You will learn different recipes plus substitutes that you can try to make your own.
