Indian Cooking Class! 

One of our members, Sunanda Sanghi, and Padmini Prasad, one of our friends, demonstrated how to cook an authentic Indian vegetarian dish in our UU kitchen. Both women were born and grew up in India but both have lived in the USA for many years. They respect the wonderful culinary traditions of their heritage and shared them – the fragrant spices used in cooking and where to buy the products.  They also shared information about their cultural heritage which you will see in the slide show below.

Their spouses helped celebrate the event which culminated with a delicious dinner shared by all.  Many thanks to Sunanda and Padmani
