This is a special opportunity to visit a traditional South Indian Chettiar home near the Chennai seashore. Get picked up from your Chennai hotel and drive out of Chennai to reach Kamala's home located 5 minutes from the sea. Relax in her charming home and learn to cook South Indian dishes with an expert home cook. Kamala will teach you to make 2-3 dishes (including how to pour dosas) before you sit down together to enjoy a typical South Indian meal. You might try dishes such as Chettinad chicken, minced mutton nuggets, egg dosa, fish curry, jackfruit masala, and one of our favorites, piping hot dosas (roasted, rice pancakes) fresh off the griddle, all served on a fresh banana leaf.Please note that this home is a 45 minute drive from the heart of Chennai, located midway between Chennai and Mahabalipuram, a popular tourist destination. Her home is also 20 minutes away from Dakshinachitra, a beautiful open-air museum of South Indian heritage and culture.
