Nidhi has been fond of cooking since she was a child and made her first cup of chai at the age of seven. Her mother is a great cook and always encouraged her to learn by helping in the kitchen. She credits her Indian cooking skills to her mother, and western cooking talents to her mother-in-law. Nidhi currently helps her friend run a local cafe called Nooushe Jaaan. When she’s not cooking, Nidhi loves to read and is the founder of an Agra book club. Nidhi lives with her husband, in-laws and children in their ancestral home on the centrally located MG Road in a lovely neighborhood. Her children are the seventh generation to live in their home and every corner of the house has a story to tell. The beautiful structure, furniture and décor instantly transport you to another era. Join Nidhi for a homecooked meal where she will introduce you to the food and flavors of Uttar Pradesh, the regional cuisine she grew up eating. Your meal will include slow-cooked north Indian dishes such as baingan ka bharta (seasoned eggplant roast), methi aloo (fenugreek with potatoes), egg curry, kali mirch chicken (black pepper chicken) and gajar mattar (stir-fried peas and carrots). If you book a cooking experience, join Nidhi in her kitchen for a cooking demonstration (note this will be a cooking demonstration rather than a hands-on cooking lesson). Nidhi will demonstrate how to prepare 2-3 dishes such as dal tadka (lentils) and roti (flatbread) or a paneer gravy (fresh cheese), depending on the menu for that day. If you are interested in a market shopping experience, Nidhi also offers an experience where local vegetable and fruit vendors come to Nidhi’s doorstep with mobile carts. Instead of going to a market, you will have a close interaction with the vendors who come to her doorstep and learn about the different local produce available. Nidhi will explain how vegetables and fruits are used in Indian cooking before beginning your cooking demonstration.
