New Pod Opened!
We are proud to announce that following the success of our Flagship Pod in Merton, we have now opened in Watford. You can now choose from which Pod you want to have your experience. Go to 'Book Online' and choose your preferred Pod or email if you have any questions.

Our love for traditional home cooked food stems from our ancestral home town of Surat, Gujarat where the aromas of freshly ground spices would engulf every kitchen and flow into the streets.
The art of traditional home cooked Indian food is fast becoming lost in the modern world of Indian takeaways. We want to revive and inspire your tastebuds with a traditional cooking experience using home ground spices.
Experience home cooked food made in the Surti way from the state of Gujarat, India, then take the dry spices away with you to re-create the delicious dishes in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Classes are held for a maximum of 5 (Morden) or 4 (Watford) people, to create an intimate experience. You will be able to enjoy a complimentary glass of Prosecco while we cook. Each class will be a live demonstration allowing you to fully immerse your senses and finally enjoy the finished cooked dishes.

Your experience will involve 2 dishes, served with rice, chapatis and salad lasting around 2 1/2 hours .
Classes are £50 per person with a maximum of 5 (Morden) or 4 (Watford) people per class. Email for larger group bookings.
