We had the best day learning how to cook 3 different curries, rice, pakora and chapatis plus chai tea!
They are so knowledgeable and it was really interesting to learn all about spices and how they work together and to help with things like digestive issues.
Obviously we got to it eat and it was amazing! One of the best meals I’ve had in India and there was so much food - we left totally stuffed!

My wife and I went to the cooking class and we leaved the full of joy and full stomach. We learned about the defferent spices that came from their own spice shop! When you finish the class you will feel like a local Indian cook. An amazing experience with an amazing people!

If you are in Rishikesh and want to indulge your senses, please pay Amit a visit either at his spice shop or gift yourself a cooking class with him… you’ll be greatly appreciative of doing so!

This was hands down one of the most satisfying experiences in India. We were a large group of ayurveda students, and were pleasantly surprised to meet him in his shop and later take his class. He is very giving by nature, and so he shares with you all his cooking tips and secrets.

Together with Nila, his wife (i apologize if I misspell her name) they are an inviting couple, open and very kind. They make you feel welcome and at home, which is one of the best feelings when being away from your own place.. top that with delicious food, and you are set to have an amazing experience.

Thank you very much for all your knowledge and kindness 🙏🏻 Hope to return someday soon!
