Classes at the Co-op
Vegetarian Indian Dhals and Lentils - Monday, May 19, 6-8:30 pm
Lentils make up a huge part of the vegetarian Indian diet because they are high in protein and endlessly versatile. This class features a variety of lentil dishes including khichdi – basmati rice cooked with mung dhal seasoned with ginger, onion and tomatoes; moogambat – sprouted green mung beans cooked in roasted coconut sauce, and toor dhal chutney – roasted lentils ground with chili and tamarind. We will also enjoy a cool tomato raita and a seasonal fruit chaat for something sweet.
