Spice Paradise

Saffron Lassi with Almond Garnish
Imagine you are in Jodhpur, in a busy and polluted Indian city painted blue. Among the hundreds of small businesses, on one of the streets one can find place titled Spice Paradise. Its a place to buy a magical local spices & to learn how to cook Indian food.

Now imagine that you are in a real Indian kitchen, in a real Indian house without a roof, a grandma sleeping just on a matrace right in the next room (sleeping and watching - saying nothing), two young ladies showing smiley faces, and head of the house selling different stuff from the shop outside.

According to a story of the wonderful teacher and spirit of the Spice Paradise Rekha Sharma - this now relatively huge spice space and cooking school has developed slowly from a small shop (just a table on the street) & of course by a lucky coinsidence which allowed Rekha to do things that was not appropriate for women at that time.. Two main culprits of this success story is a thirsty Italian traveller and Rekha's courage...

You will spend there up to five hours with not more than six beautiful people with common interests - learn cooking and eat a dam good food.

Indian Masala Tea, Biryani rice, Dal, Raita, Palak Paneer, 3 kinds of bread, Lassi and other delicious dishes one can expect from these cooking classes. Ya, Saffron Lassi with almond garnish is super-nutritious, but it's definetely worth it!
