moong dal Kapiti Summer School summer school adult classes education 400Green Moong Curry, Rice and Roti

Moong Dal is Packed with protein and low carbs, green gram otherwise known as moong dal is one of the best vegetarian superfoods. An integral part of the Indian diet, it is a good and filling option for those who want to shed kilos.

Yellow moong dal is extremely light and easy to digest. It is easier to cook but lacks the fibre content of whole green moong. Compared to other dals, moong dal is one of the low carb pulses available.

Moong beans are a good source of protein for vegetarians. Though meat still ranks the first in protein content, moong dal is also not far behind. A 100-gm serving of moong dal can provide you with 24 gm protein.

Roti (also known as chapati) is a round flatbread native to the Indian subcontinent made from stoneground wholemeal flour, traditionally known as atta, and water that is combined into a dough. Roti is consumed in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Maldives, Malaysia and Bangladesh.

Hemlata Patel

Hemalat Indian indian vegetarian cooking Kapiti Summer School summer school adult classes educationInterested in learning more about the Indian culture and cuisine? Well you're at the right place!

Hello, my name is Hemlata Patel, I have a passion for Indian cooking. I have a loving family of two children and my husband. I love to cook fantastic food for my family.

I teach people how to prepare vegan and vegetarian dishes. When I was younger I was interested in looking for recipes in newspaper. I would follow the recipes and make food for my family. This is where my passion started from.

When I first came to New Zealand from India I realised that it was extremely difficult to cook Indian food as there weren't many Indian flavours and spices that were recognised in New Zealand. We notice there was a shortage of Indian grocery stores in the Wellington region and that led us to opening our Indian spice shop in Paraparaumu, so it would be for convenient for the locals who are interested in learning and exploring the Indian cuisine.

After opening the store, I was giving the opportunity by the Community Centre in Paraparaumu, of spreading the knowledge of Indian cuisine to the wider community through the establishment of my very own cooking class.

It was my dream to have the ability to teach others about Indian cuisine,and I now finally had the chance to fulfil my dream. For me I believe my biggest achievement is being able to successfully share my knowledge.

I highly appreciated the support given by the senior citizens of Paraparaumu,andI am extremely thankful of their continuous support and respect. They have helped me discover my hidden talent of cooking.

I dedicate my knowledge of cooking to my wonderful mother-in-law and mother. Through the Kapiti Summer School courses I want to spread the knowledge of the Indian cuisine and the health benefits of consuming Indian food in relation to all the various spices used in the cooking. For instance, the use of turmeric has been used India for thousands of years, and spice and medicinal herbs have been proven to have over 10 health benefits. For example, turmeric contains bioactive compounds with powerful medicinal properties.
