Friday, Mar. 22 from 6-8:30 p.m. @ Sitka Kitch community kitchen at the Sitka Lutheran Church. Learn how to make chicken curry during the Sitka Kitch class, Indian Cooking with Dr. Supriya Mathur. This class is part of our Cooking Around the World series and is a fundraiser for the Sitka Kitch.
Dr. Mathur works at SEARHC in Sitka as an ear, nose and throat specialist. She received her doctorate from Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi, India. Dr. Mathur grew up in India and did not leave home until age 25. She says: “Coming to the United States caused my food world to expand and grow at an explosive pace; however after living here for 20 plus years and having kids , my go-to food is Indian. I am now more aware of all the health benefits of the different Indian spices that are used and my background as a physician and a mother makes me strive to find healthy, flavorful meals that are not very labor intensive. I grew up on lentils and rice but chicken curry or goat curry was always a treat in my house.”
The menu will include chicken curry — a staple of many Indian households and a versatile dish that can be tweaked to make many other kinds of — recipes, a dip, and a side dish.
