About
Meet Shilpa in her central Mumbai home and share a cup of tea before departing to the Wadala Church Market for your market tour. Here you see a traditional open neighborhood market and learn about the regional fruits, vegetables, spices and grains on sale. Return to your host's home for a vegetarian Punjabi cooking class. Punjabi cuisine is one of the most popular Indian cuisines centered around rich, creamy flavors. Learn to make roti/paratha (flatbread) and 2-3 traditional Punjabi dishes such as paneer makhanwala (fresh cheese in a buttery tomato sauce) and rajma (kidney beans in a silky gravy). Share the meal with Shilpa who explains how to eat each dish for maximum taste and flavor - laccha paratha (layered flatbread) should be eaten with the mint-flavored chickpea dish! Your meal will include additional dishes that Shilpa has prepared in advance like vegetable masala, malai kofta, dal makhni (slow cooked creamy black lentils), and for dessert, kheer (sweet rice pudding).

Meal + Cooking Experience + Market Tour (incl. Transport) at Pallavi‘s
First of all thanks to the Traveling Spoon team. It was the first time I used your service and so I had a lot of questions. You always answered fast und precise and that‘s really seldom with online services.

A lot of thanks to Pallavi. She is a wonderful and warm host.
We came with a cruise ship. So she picked as up at the Green Gate (where everybody had to leave the Harbour) and organized the transport first to the market then to her home and back to the ship as good as possible concerning the (sometimes bad) traffic at Mumbai. (For other cruisers: we never had the fear to not be back on the ship in time! The timing was well done.)
On the market Pallavi showed and explained us a lot of goods and answered our question. And she helped us to buy some spices (vanilla, saffron, ...) that are much more expensive in our country than here.
Then we arrived at her luxury flat as described in the announcement. (It‘s of course we’ll air conditioned.) She welcomed us with a cooling drink, some appetizers and the menu card of dishes we will cook and then eat.
Later in the kitchen first she showed how to prepare the vegetables, spices and herbs and who to prepare the dishes. After that we were invited to do by ourselves. You will be astonished how easy and fast the preparations are if you follow Pallavi‘s tips. (For other guests: don‘t be afraid, Pallavi’s cooking isn‘t really hot. It‘s spicy, yes, but not hot, and while preparing the dishes you can decide how much chili will be used.)
Back to the eating room to the well prepared table two Pallavi’s attendants served us and herself the lunch. Pallavi explained how to eat the different things in the Indian style, why to combine some of them. And I can tell you, if you follow her advice, her served food is great. (For others: if you never tried south Asian food or have only the experience of some restaurants in Europe, the taste not comparable, it’s different, it‘s originally and much better!)
Beside eating and later we had warm and nice talks about us, our families, about living in Mumbai...
Last but not least Pallavi sent us back to the ship with her driver well in time.
We had a great day in Mumbai full of new and best experiences and tastes (and ideas to cook by myself at home).
Again Pallavi, thank you a lot!
