Tonight, The Prof and I took the Curry Up! Indian Street Food class at the Boston Center for Adult Education (his sis got us a gift cert last year for Christmas, thanks T!) The class was taught by this funny little Indian chef, and I learned three main things:
- a lot of street food is fried using a chickpea flour batter
- the different foods are all built using the same "building blocks"
- Indians must have some natural tolerance for sodium, or they all have high blood pressure
