A Social to Warm the Insides


With temperatures dropping to -43 here’s something to warm you up from the inside out.

A group from Knowle & Dorridge Running Club swapped their trainers for turmeric and lycra for lychees, recently, when they learned how to create an Indian feast with chef and club member Moushumi Moran of Solihull-based Cardamom Pod Cookery School.

Ladies captain Kathy Bailey hosted the evening and proved her impeccable fitness levels with some strenuous mixing of the onion bhajis, which turned out to be light and crisp, delicious and perfect!

For a group more accustomed to pounding the streets, they soon became equally adept at pounding ginger and garlic with a pestle & mortar. Everyone who took part was taught the secrets of simple, easy Indian cuisine and Moushumi imparted a few tricks of the trade, honed during her childhood and upon which she has built a thriving cookery school with both public classes and private dinner-party style sessions where groups of friends, like K&D Running Club, gather to enjoy making and eating delicious Indian feasts.

After preparing the meal, accompanied by a couple of glasses of fizz, the group enjoyed their feast of delicious lamb curry, Punjabi green beans, red lentil Dahl, the perfect onion bhajis, rice and a cooling cucumber raita.

As well as offering cookery classes, the Cardamom Pod also caters for select private parties. For further information on classes, dinner parties classes and private classes, please visit www.thecardamompod.com.
