Feast of Persia Masterclass at Food Hall


Food Hall at 1MG, Bangalore is currently showcasing a 'Persian Food Festival' at their store. I was part of a group of enthusiasts who gathered to learn the preparation of some Persian dishes from celebrity chef Abhijit Saha. Here's a photo tour...


Chef Abhijit Saha is the owner of award winning restaurants Fava and Caperberry in Bangalore. He delighted the audience with his trademark humor and sound knowledge of the subject... 


Abhijit invited some volunteers from the audience to assist him in the cookery...


The first dish of the day is a Spinach mezze with Labneh called Borani-e-Esfenaj...



Soon the dish was ready for plating...



Borani-e-Esfenaj was as tasty as it looked...




Here's the recipe if you want to try preparing it at home...



The interactive masterclass kept the audience really involved...


Chicken Jujeh Kebab with Persian rice and mast-o-khair yogurt dip was the next dish. Marinade for the Chicken Jujeh Kebab...



Thread chicken and diced tomato on skewers...


Barbecue...


This Japanese lady amazed everyone with her skillful tossing of Polov rice...

The next dish, Kebab Koobideh involved pressing of minced lamb on metal skewers...


Ready to barbecue...


Kabab Koobideh was served with a cucumber and pomegranate salad...



Here's the recipe...


Baklava with fig and honey was quite a dessert...


Here's the recipe...
