Deccan Tiffin cookery classes are held in Priya’s home kitchen in West Hove, which is fully equipped for Indian cooking. The precise location will be provided on booking.

Spend an afternoon learning how to cook an Indian meal from scratch. Each lesson will last roughly three hours and will be scheduled on a Sunday. £75 per person. You will take away the food you cook to enjoy at home after the lesson!

Groups will be offered a concession. Advance booking is essential – please email the host Priya Deshingkar at

The course includes the following elements: 

  • Learning about the spices and cooking techniques we will use 
  • Roasting and grinding spices to make the spice mix for the lamb (if chosen) 
  • A main dish – either lamb (dhaba curry)/fish (ginger and mustard fish curry)/paneer makhani
  • A raita
  • Matar Pulao (rice and peas dish)

You can also try one of my bespoke Indian cookery lessons on Zoom!

Why not gather a group of friends, and take an advanced cookery class? Group size of 4 to 6 people, with prices starting at £15 per person. You will be sent a list of ingredients and cooking equipment ahead of time, then given step-by-step instructions to cook an authentic Indian meal.

Learn to cook traditional recipes such as goat korma; matar pulao and pomegranate raita, as taught in one of my previous classes

What to expect from Deccan Tiffin cookery classes – from our customers

Amazing North Indian Cookery Class

“If, like us, you’ve been to any of Priya’s supper clubs, you’ll know her food is very different to the Indian food you’re probably used to; the flavours are richer, deeper, and definitely delicious-er!

“When we had the chance to attend one of her Zoom cooking classes, we jumped at it. We made Venison Korma, pilau, and raita.

“Priya was a great host, guiding us through the whole process step by step, checking our progress throughout, suggesting alternatives for any ingredients we couldn’t get, and making suggestions on how we could modify the recipes for future experimentation.

“We learnt some great techniques and were introduced to new spices and ingredients – and the results were spectacular! Our korma actually tasted like something Priya would serve us – there is no higher praise!

“We thoroughly enjoyed the class and, even better, had a truly authentic North Indian meal at the end. We’d thoroughly recommend these classes – they’re great fun and teach you some great new skills.

“Thank you Priya for sharing your considerable enthusiasm, love, and expertise.” – Chrissie and Jon, Worthing
