Namaste friends,

Jeenal Mehta is trying her very best to spread vegetarianism in India and foreign countries by teaching the people to cook delicious vegetarian dishes. After conducting vegetarian workshops in India and Thailand, this time she conducted an Indian Veg Cooking Workshop in Itajubá - Minas Gerais in Brazil.

Jeenal teaching Aloo Ghobi to the Brazilain ladies!

The Indian Gujarati dish Aloo Ghobi was one of the favourite dishes of the participants. It is a quick and simple recipe made from potatoes and cauliflower with crackled mustard seeds and other indian spicees! Yum..yum..yummy!!!

After the cooking session, an Indian
dinning area was arranged!  Lovely!

the secrets of Indian dining!

The workshop was filled with fun...Jeenal not yet knowing fluent Portuguese would  communicate with the  Brazilian participants in her broken Portuguese bringing in humor and surprise for everybody. But thanks to Daniel that he was always there for translation when needed! 

The delicious Indian dishes taught were Channa Masala (Chick pea curry), Roti and Paratha (Indian bread), Aloo Ghobi (cauliflower with potato curry), Baingan Bharta (burnt brinjal with indian spices), Chaas (refreshing Indian drink made from yoghurt) and Hara Bhara Kebab (Kebab made from peas, potatoes, mint and other spices).
