Vandy Cooks: ‘Indian Food Made Easy’ March 22

The Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center and Health Plus will present the next installment of Vandy Cooks from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, in the VRWC demonstration kitchen.

Love Indian cuisine, but think it may be too difficult to prepare? Kalyani and Venkataraman Amarnath are back by popular demand following their demonstration last June. Once again they will share favorite native recipes chosen for ease of preparation as well as taste.

The presenters are from Tamil Nadu, India, and are currently researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. At the March 22 session, you will receive tips on Indian spices and the best places to purchase recipe ingredients in the Nashville area. The couple will create personal favorite dishes such as pilaf rice, carrot salad and raitha. Samples will be provided along with recipes for all of the dishes and their nutritional information.

Vandy Cooks is a monthly partnership among the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center, Health Plus and a number of celebrated food experts.
