Rekha's Cooking Class


Nepal has an outstanding cuisine that is full of flavor. Many people fall in love with Nepali food, and in this Pokhara Cooking Class at my home, where I will teach you how to make it.

Dal Bhat, a very healthy rice and lentil soup, is one of the most popular dishes. 75% of the people eat this twice a day. So this is a dish you can't miss, and I will show you its secrets.

Besides the Dal Bhat, we will make Puri, Pakauda & Aaludum, Nepali Momo & soup (Meat Momo or Vegetarian Momo). All the dishes are very common in Nepal. Afterward, you can enjoy your own made Nepali dish!

We had a wonderful time learning three traditional Nepali recipes - dal baht, puri and momos. After trekking and eating lots of yummy meals along the way we wanted to learn how to make them ourselves. Rekha and her family were so lovely and welcoming. Rekha is a great teacher and very patient with our terrible momo making skills! Highly recommend :)

I truly an amazing time! Rehka was wonderful. I felt so welcomed immediately walking in the door. Everything was prepared and ready! Rehka was so informative! Not only did she show me how to cook Nepali but also taught me how to eat Nepali. Explaining how to eat with my hands and how to combine different parts of the dal bat / momo& soup. I highly recommend this activity to any foodies!!


My fiancé and I were in Pokhara for a few days after trekking and wanted to learn the secrets of Dal Bhat and Nepali cooking. Rekha’s Cooking Class gave us that and so much more. Her family was so welcoming and immediately made us feel at home. Everything was prepped in advance and we could go at our own pace, never feeling rushed. We cooked Dal Bhat, Puri Aloo Dom, and Momo’s in the whole five-hour experience. And the most genuine part of all was Rekha and DB’s love for their children, over 15 of them, and talking about how the proceeds from the cooking class go to help raise these ‘foster’ kids and other youths in the city. An incredible family and experience we highly recommend!


The cooking class was great. It was soo good of Rekha to make herself available for us even though she had a broken leg. She sat there and did cooking along with her daughter. Thanks so much Rekha and I Like Local!

Excellent experience, you must try. Food was great and it was so nice to be invited into Rekhas home and meet her family.


The cooking class with Rekha was great, her family is terrific, especially the daughters. It is a must-do in Pokhara and I can definitely recommend the class. The only tiny improvement point I have is that it would have been nice to have some extra help in cutting vegetables or cooking the dishes. But no complaints it was wonderful!

What an amazing experience cooking with Rekha and her daughter in their kitchen! I loved all the food even the dishes I was not sure about having tried elsewhere. My favorite was the Allu Dum, Yum! Will defiantly visit again when in Pokhara. Thank you so much for having me in your home and showing me everything from scratch :)

I cannot believe not more people are talking about this cooking class! Such a wonderful day, with such a wonderful family. Rekha is a master in the kitchen, making everything look so easy and everything so delicious. I can't wait to get home to try everything for myself. Everyone must do this!

We trek around Nepal for 3 weeks and we found a cooking class to learn the famous dal bhat recipe. We found Rekhas cooking class. This is the best cooking experience I ever had. The recipes learned are delicious, well-described and we will cook them at home. The owners are so generous and they are very welcoming. A 5-star experience. You will live this cooking class with a lot of new knowledge, but also beautiful memories. I highly recommend this cooking class to anyone who likes good food. Thank again for everything! See you soon.


I attended the cooking school with no expectations but it turned out to be one of the highlights of my 3 week trip in Nepal. Rekha is a great teacher - she took her time to cook with us (we were just 2 in the class). Warmly recommended!
