Cooking and Eating Workshop: Baked Samosas with Cooling Chutney with Vidya Chapman *

Mon, Sep 12

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM Eastern Time

Tuition: $20

Foods actually influence your moods and play an important role in creating a feeling of positivity and balance. Ayurveda recognizes six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent. At the end of the hot summer season, keep cool by using more of the sweet, bitter and astringent tastes that pacify Pitta dosha.

Join Vidya as she teaches how to make baked samosas with cooling cilantro-coconut chutney.

Registrants will be sent a short shopping list of ingredients.

The class will be live online on Zoom and will be recorded. All registrants will receive a copy of the class recording.
