Scenes from the Sitka Kitch Indian cooking class with Dr. Supriya Mathur

Students learned how to cook chicken curry with a lime-cilantro chutney during the Sitka Kitch’s Cooking Around The World class Indian Cooking With Dr. Supriya Mathur on Friday, April 26, at the new Sitka Kitch location in the Sitka Lutheran Church. This class was originally scheduled for March 22, but was postponed after Dr. Mathur had a death in the family.

Dr. Mathur is an ear, nose and throat surgeon at SEARHC whose family is from India. She discussed some of the differences in regional cuisines of India, and also taught the students how to make garam masala using black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, black cardamom, green cardamom, and mace.
