Bookends University Online Cooking Workshop: Instant Pot Indian

We are delighted to welcome celebrity cookbook author Anupy Singla for a cook-along workshop, preparing recipes from her brand-new book, Instant Pot Indian, a collection of 70 delicious, authentic Indian recipes you can make in minutes.These no-guesswork recipes are simpler than their traditional counterparts and healthier than restaurant favorites, as they don't require extra oil and fat. The "Indian Spices 101" chapter introduces readers to the mainstay spices of an Indian kitchen, as well as how to store, prepare, and combine them in different ways. Singla's clear, detailed instructions walk even the most timid cook through the process of using an electric pressure cooker. 

In this fun, interactive workshop, Anupy will guide participants through the preparation of butter chicken and dal makhani--we will send you a list of ingredients ahead of time, so you can join in and cook along if you like.

The workshop fee of $45 includes a copy of Instant Pot Indian, which you can pick up in the bookstore or have mailed to you.
