Mamta’s Kitchen

July 15, 2012

Congratulations to Mamta’s Kitchen for receiving over 10 million hits since they launched in 2001. If you haven’t visited yet, check it out. The blurb on the homepage sums it up perfectly:

This family run recipe site is intended to be a ‘living’ cookbook, constantly updated and refreshed. Enjoy our great selection of Indian and international recipes, sumptuous meal ideas and cooking tips and visit our discussion forum to ask questions and share feedback.

Mamta’s Kitchen is an amazing resource for anyone who loves good food. All the recipes are clear and easy to follow in a western kitchen. The dishes have been honed over years of experience, and with input from other contributors to the site.

Last autumn I went to a Mamta’s Kitchen class. A small group of us cooked a range a dishes for lunch and an evening meal, which we then ate together. It was a fantastic day and I learned so much. Mamta is an excellent teacher and the food we cooked during the class was really delicious.

In fact it was some of the nicest homemade food I have ever tasted. I particularly enjoyed the Fish Curry and the Mackerel Kebabs and have cooked the latter several times.

I would happily recommend the class to anyone, whether a novice or expert cook, who wants to learn some inspiring Indian recipes and cooking methods. It was excellent value for money too, especially as the fees are donated to charity.

If you are interested in going along to a class, the best thing to do is read this and follow the link to sign up for the mailing list. They have more classes lined up for later in the year. The maximum number of participants is four, so everyone gets involved.

Disclosure: I first found out about the Mamta’s Kitchen website through my friendship with Mamta’s daughter Kavita. But I have not received any payment for this blogpost and paid the full fee for class.

    Hello Ruth. Thank you so much for the lovely comments about our course. I am glad you enjoyed it and got something out of it. Anyway, it was lovely see you.
    Just one tiny correction; so far, we have donated 100% of the fee from the course to a named charity each time and added some more from us. All ingredients and labour are my donation to the chosen charity.

      Hello Mamta. Thank you so much for a wonderful day. I didn’t realise the full fee went to charity – this is even more impressive. I have edited the wording to make it correct.
      love, Ruth
