Course Details

An evening creating spicy Nepalese Dhal Bhat Tarkari and traditional Tibetan Momo. Rachel Demuth bought these recipes (photographed) back from her trips to Nepal, having cooked with her guide’s wife Sharmila.

Dhal (lentils), bhat (rice) and tarkari (vegetables) are staples in the Annapurna mountain region.

The dhal is made with a mix of split lentils – black urid lentils being popular – flavoured with turmeric, cumin and coriander and sometimes spinach. The Nepalese like their dhal soupy – they pour it over a mound of rice, mix with the fingers of the right hand and eat deftly keeping their palm spotlessly clean, it’s quite a skill!

Potatoes are the main component of the tarkari, then seasoned with onion, garlic, fenugreek, turmeric, chilli, cumin and coriander plus lots of salt. Served on the side are stir-fried greens such as mustard tops, spinach and cabbage, and pickles.

On this Himalayan Evening we will make dishes such as:

  • Tibetan Momo and Dipping Sauce
  • Hemp Seed Pickle
  • Black Urad Dhal
  • Tarkari - Seasonal Vegetable Curry
  • Pomegranate and Coriander Basmati Rice

This workshop is a combination of demonstration and hands on cooking.

The course ends with a sit down meal around our dining table to enjoy the food made. Please bring a plastic container if you wish to take some of your food home with you. You will leave with a full recipe pack so you can recreate the dishes at home.

All of it was delicious - thank you for the secrets to perfect rice! I loved the buzz of everything and the personal touches and stories from Lydia - it is so lovely to hear about their own experiences and their history and travels - it brings the dishes to life.

The food was delicious and I liked the way we could regulate the heat of the dishes.

The tutors were clear and informative. All presented in a friendly and unthreatening way!
