Description

There are many cuisines that you can dine and enjoy in Bengaluru but the best way to experience the local life & food of the city is by interacting with locals and having interesting conversations over authentic and regional food.

Meet Suma and Soumya, who invite you to their 80-year old ancestral home in Basavanagudi, Bengaluru, where you will get to experience and enjoy a hidden culinary treasure of India - Karunadu Oota. 'Karu' means black while 'Nadu' translates to region, and 'Oota' translates to meal. It is the regional cuisine of Karnataka where dishes are prepared using the grains and pulses that are grown in the black soil of the region. It is a cherished cuisine among Bangaloreans and the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law duo are preparing a lovely meal and also inviting you into their kitchen to try your hand at making these simple dishes, boasting of robust flavours.

The whole experience can last about 2-4 hours.

Meet at Suma and Soumya’s beautiful home in Basavanagudi, Bengaluru. Once you arrive, they will serve you a soothing welcome drink and talk to you about their cuisine and culture. 

Make sure your sleeves are rolled up high as you indulge in a cooking session with home-chefs Suma and Soumya as they teach you how to make Rasam (Spicy watery broth which is tangy and delicious), Masala roti (Indian flatbread with a hint of spices) and Indian buttermilk! What follows is a meal that explores the various flavours of the local cuisine of Karnataka. You can ask the duo anything in regards to the culture, cuisine or anything else that tickles your curiosity.

The meal includes a refreshing glass of buttermilk, the Hithkida Bele (famous seasonal dish of Karnataka made from peeled field beans), Siridhanya Navane (delicious and nutritious rice porridge made with foxtail millet), Tomato Rasam (Spicy and tangy tomato broth), Masala Roti (Indian flatbread with a hint of spice) and many more flavours of the region that you will get to relish.

This experience focuses on the charm of visiting an Indian family at their home and learning about their culture and cuisine. 

The entire experience can last for about 2-4 hours.

Please note: This is not a professional cooking class. This is an unique opportunity to interact with a local and learn some tips and tricks of Indian cooking and enjoy a lovely home-cooked meal over great conversions.
