Festivals in the City of Angels: Diwali Sweets Cooking Lesson
We have invited Mayura Indian Restaurant to help us prepare for Diwali, the Indian festival of lights celebrated, in part, with sweet desserts. Owner Padmini Aniyan and Head Chef Sathi Venu will teach us how to make traditional Keralan sweets, such as unniyappam (Indian dumplings made of flour, banana, and jaggery) and payasam (Indian pudding), dishes served as part of the MICHELIN-recognized restaurant’s annual Diwali feast. Ingredients and preparation instructions sent upon RSVP. Come with everything prepared and ready to cook!
Presented in partnership with Indian Student Union at UCLA.
