Chef Devagi Sanmugam takes us on a fascinating journey to Pondicherry, India to explore French culinary influences in the cuisine. She will share a bit of history; a bit of culinary traditions and how French cuisine became entwined with local ingredients in Pondicherry and then she will share some intriguing recipes.
1. Cassoulet De Fruits De Mer
The equivalent of the French Bouillabaisse, this rich seafood stew of prawns, fish, squids, and scallops are cooked with Vadavom Spice Mix (French Masala that originated in Pondicherry which you will learn to make) and laced with coconut cream.
2. Indian Inspired Ratatouille
The classic Provencal ratatouille has a touch of the Indian spices that includes the traditional tempering technique.
3. Smoked Paprika Lamb Chops
Succulent lamb chops with a spicy, smoky marinade.
4. Saffron & Cardamom Creme Brûlée
An Indian inspired French classic dessert loaded with warm delicate flavors of saffron and cardamoms. Be swooned by the delicious aroma of caramelized jaggery and sugar!
