I love what I do..

After completing BA Fine Arts, I trained and worked as an assistant photographer in India, including a project on a Kerala Cook Book that led me to work with a publisher in London and Spain. I started my business Cook Indian in Bern Switzerland in 2006. After 8 years of experience teaching from home, working at the Migrosclub School and with an internet team event platform, I have continued my cooking courses since 2014 in my own newly built kitchen at home in Aesch LU at Hallwilersee.

My USP - just like my mother who loved to cook and eat together, I am teaching authentic Indian cuisine in my home with tips and tricks from my Indian heritage. Other cooks claim, "curry” with "yellow color" as the main spice in their Indian cooking classes. Wrong! The word curry does not exist in the Indian cuisine and "chili hot" is a personal choice. Come to my Indian cooking experience and I will show you how the real Indian spices elevate ordinary sauces or currys to spicy masalas.

COURSES for family & friends

Enjoy cooking a selection of dishes inspired by my Indian upbringing; easy recipes that you can dish up in your home and have great fun doing it! You can choose from these 3 themes - Indian colorful meat and vegetable currys; vegetarian "go green"  currys  or a 3-course-meal....

"We had an amazing evening! The cooking class was really interesting and fun. Parul was really nice, helpful and patient. She explained everything we needed to know and was always on our side when we needed some help. We managed to cook an amazing dinner with 4 different indian dishes! It was delicious! We had a lot of fun and I can recommend this experience to everyone! It's definitely worth trying:)"

Parul's shop

My shop offers various essential and basic Indian spices, chatnis and products that I use in my cooking classes - a Starter-Kit; a Spice Box; a special Rolling pin just like my grandmother’s; a Paneer Press to make cheese yourself or one of the many Spice mixtures and Chatnis. For a unique experience to take with you - a Gift Voucher for a private course or a Take-away dinner for 2
