The Secret's in the Sauce

Featuring Chef Ravi
Chef Ravi reprises his popular class taught through Howard County Parks and Recreation to bring you the best of the basics of Indian cuisine: foundation sauces.

We'll make three sauces - Masala, Makhani, and Korma, which will recreate nearly any dish you love at your favorite Indian restaurant - that's a Chef Ravi promise!

We'll use our delicious sauces as the base of our meal: Chicken Tikka Masala, Paneer and Corn Korma, and Vegetable Masala with Lemon Pulao. And of course, we'll treat ourselves to dessert: warm vermicelli pistachio pudding.
