My partner and I went to one 3 h weekend class where we learned how to cook a few traditional Indian meals including tandoori chicken which we loved! We felt very welcome in Nidhi’s house and she was amazing at explaining everything thoroughly and also gave tips on how to cook other meals.
Nidhi is a wonderful host, and breeds confidence in her students. She is full of interesting stories and useful tips. I’ve always wanted to be able to cook in the Indian style, and now feel like I am capable of mastering the technique. Thank you Nidhi.
Matt and I had a great morning in Nidhi’s beautiful home. She is a passionate, dynamic and fun teacher and makes you realise Indian cooking is simple, healthy and cheap! Despite Matt nearly chopping his thumb off, it was a very inspiring day and we can’t wait to use our new knowledge in the kitchen.Thanks Nidhi, we had a great day, I hope your classes continue to do so well.
Thank you so much for Saturday. I had a fantastic time, it was a great lesson and the food was delicious – I’m looking forward to putting what I learnt into practice! Your explanations throughout were clear and the way the lesson was designed to get us all involved worked really well. I’ve been telling everyone about it since.
It was an enjoyable experience, in nice surroundings, the others on the event were good company, Nidhi was a great teacher and host. Good value as you get to eat the food that is cooked, get a mug of Chai tea on arrival and get to take home your apron along with copies of the recipes.
We’ve always loved eating Indian food, so when we found out about Nidhi’s cookery classes from a friend, we couldn’t wait to go. A truly unique cooking and dining experience, in a lovely setting, with the perfect teacher and hostess in Nidhi. We can’t wait to go back. Highly recommended!
We recently took a class with Nidhi and thoroughly enjoyed our experience! We were made to feel instantly welcome when we were served very tasty spiced tea to kick things off (a first for us)! Nidhi guided us through each step of every dish and we particularly loved hearing about the origin of the food as well as snippets of her family history.
Fantastic class cooking at Meri Rasoi with Nidhi, we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable to ask any questions we had on cooking indian food. This is a hands on class which we found great and now feel we can take this menu back to our own kitchen and enjoy the same delicious meal.
Thank you Nidhi for a fantastic cooking experience. We really had no idea what to expect from the course but left feeling we had learnt lots and had a really fun time doing so. I am not a natural cook so liked the way you gave people the option to get as involved as they wanted in the food preparation and cooking.
What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, and a delicious way to spend the lunchtime! Nidhi’s class was relaxed and hands on, and no question went unanswered. I signed up so I could learn some basics about Indian cooking, and I came away with much more – looking forward to recreating the recipes myself this weekend!
Had such a fab time cooking with Nidhi, she was lovely and the meal was delicious – thanks very much! Annie and Jack
Bought as a gift for my partner’s birthday, we attended a saturday morning class. Nidhi was fantastic, a great teacher and very knowledgable! We left with many cooking tips and skills in the art of Indian cooking! We definietly hope to come again soon!
I enjoyed your 3 weeks course and a foodwalk at Tooting. I learnt a lot of things about Indian food and culture from you. All were very interesting for me because I didn’t know a lot about India and Indian food. All dishes were not only delicious, but also gorgeous. I will try to make them when I have a guest at home. Thank you for the wonderful time.
My husband and I attended a Saturday morning cookery class on the 3rd September 2016. We were made to feel very welcome and found the course extremely informative. We thoroughly enjoyed Nidhi’s style of teaching which resulted in us producing a very tasty coriander chicken with rice, potatoes and raita. We were joined by 4 other keen cooks.
I took two cooking classes with Nidhi and found them fun, enjoyable and I learned a lot. I have been trying to cook using YouTube videos of Indian cooking, and having been to the class I realise that the tips and skills of an experienced chef are invaluable.
Nidhi was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, patient and passionate about food – and teaching. A great class and even better meal at the end of it. Yum !. Thanks Nidhi!!! hope to see you again for another amazing lesson soon.
Nidhi was an absolutely superb and patient teacher. My friend Harry and I found the whole experience truly wonderful and insightful. We’d both cooked curries before but Nidhi gave us some fantastic hints and tips to making delicious Indian dishes. Highly recommended.
The food the guys brought home was lovely! Hef was super impressed with the course and thoroughly enjoyed himself! Hef even went to the trouble of re-creating the rice and lamb curry tonight – turned out great and worth the wait. He would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone who is interested in Indian cooking.
We both had a great time and learned loads. The food was amazing and after the hours of cooking you made us all feel very comfortable eating in you lovely family home. It was very nice and as I guy felt no pressure. I would definitely do it again.
Thank you so much for such a fantastic morning! It was lovely meeting you and learning to cook such delicious Indian food in your gorgeous kitchen. These are definitely recipes I will try over and over again! They all complimented each other so well, there is no need to plan a menu.
Thank you so much for a wonderful Indian cooking course on Saturday, it was really lovely to meet you and learn to cook some truly delicious food in your gorgeous kitchen. The recipes were so fresh and incredibly tasty and I learnt so many new cooking tips and techniques. Sarah and I are planning on cooking the whole menu for our parents in a few weeks, we will let you know how we get on!
The cooking workshop was fantastic. Nidhi was very welcoming and created a lovely atmosphere in her home. She gave us many helpful tips and at last I can make perfect fluffy rice! The dishes were so flavoursome and a little different from the classics – I especially loved the dhania murgh masala. Thank you Nidhi!
A truly informative evening. The food was delicious and it certainly taught us things that we didn’t know about Indian cookery. Great for team building too after a busy day!
We were given a voucher for Nidhi’s Indian cooking for a Christmas present. Nidhi did all she could do to accomodate us finding a suitable date. We booked for a Saturday morning and with two others began our journey into the subtleties of Indian cooking. Nidhi shared her expert knowledge of spices and herbs and how to prepare, cook and serve them.
I have many friends from different regions of India and have always enjoyed Indian cuisine. So when a very good friend offered to give me an Indian cooking lesson for my birthday; I eagerly said yes! I’ve always wanted to learn how to cook authentic Indian food and that is exactly what you get at Meri Rasoi. Nidhi takes you on a journey; starting with an introduction to spices; providing an explanation and the value of each.
Taking this cooking course made me respect even more Indian cuisine. I learned that each condiment has different cooking processes as well as to recognize different flavours and the importance of following times and quantities adequately in order to get the best flavours out of each ingredient.
Ever since I’ve come to India, I’ve wanted to learn at least a little of the great cuisine of my host country. I have learned so much fron this class and I plan to take thehigher course later on. In fact, I already signed up. Can’t wait!
I have recently taken the six week intensive course with Nidhi Verma and I have been surprised by the depth and intensity of her course work. Don’t misunderstand me it was not difficult, but the things I learnt how to do and the understanding which I gleaned from this knowledge has allowed me to better savour Indian Cuisine.
Cooking classes at Meri Rasoi was one of the highlight of my trip to India. The group size (4) was perfect, and I really enjoyed talking and getting to know the other guests. The day was spent partly in the kitchen watching fresh food being prepared, learning tips and traditional techniques and learning how to work with traditional Indian spices.
Nidhi is so warm and lovely! I felt I was spending time with a good friend each week. She taught us many new recipes as part of the beginner course-and all were delicious!! I feel much more confident to cook Indian food and I have learned quite a bit about Indian culture as well! I highly recommend this course to anyone from beginner to seasoned cook.
I am very happy to be part of Nidhi’s first batch of students in Mumbai. I found the classes well structured and each class builds on the techniques taught from the previous one. I have never cooked Indian food before and find Nidhi’s recipes a hit with family and friends.
