VIRTUAL: Indian Chai (Tea) Time with Payal


Hi, I am Payal and I'm a real food lover. Indian cuisine is very rich in flavors, spices, ingredients, and recipes that go back to ancient times. I'm fascinated by it and would love to share my knowledge with you.

Normally, I run an onsite home cooking class, but during this time, I decided to start an Indian Tea Time Chat.

Chai is the national drink of India. It originates from the Indian Subcontinent but has now gained its popularity throughout the world. Though, the modern-dayChai' is prepared as a decoction of milk, water, and some spices. Historically it was a herbal medicine derived from the Ayurveda Text.

The spices that are used for making Chai are Cardamom, Cloves, Black pepper, Ginger / Ginger powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron, and fresh herbs like Holy Basil and Mint. Each Spice has its unique quality that fights infections, helps in general well being and if regulated properly cures many diseases. During this session, I will teach you my mom's homemade blend and we can make some delicious pakoras with it if you like.

Once you have booked I will send you the recipe via email. You will buy the necessary ingredients and on the day and time that you have booked the online cooking class, I will guide you via Zoom or Skype through the recipe. Once done, we can have a further chat about Indian culture, your culture, and share stories while we enjoy our tea.

Can't wait to meet you soon!

About Me

Hi, I am Payal and I live in Jaipur, where I run a Home Cooking school. I started a B&B and my cooking classes back in 2015 and along with that, I started offering Walking tours in the Pinkcity. My love for my city and my passion for food drew me to this activity and I cherished spending time taking travelers around my city showcasing the rich heritage of our food and culture. With the current situation around the world, our walking tours and cooking sessions have been on hold and now I am offering only Virtual cooking lessons to food enthusiasts from all over the world. This will be a LIVE cook-along session from my home kitchen that gives a peek into Indian life. We will be cooking simple recipes along with some hot favorites like Samosa and Chai. Please go through the menu and select your choice of dishes to create your own customized class. I am looking forward to warmly welcoming you to our home!
