A Little Spice is Nice

Have you fallen in love with the roti at Melbourne’s restaurants and are dying to learn how to recreate this buttery flatbread at home? In this Lunch & Learn, Singaporean chef Pamelia Chia will share all the tips and tricks you need to make authentic, flaky roti at home. The roti will be paired with an aromatic Nonya chicken curry and an array of assorted condiments such as achar, fried peanuts and anchovies and coconut rice.

In this class you will learn:

Ghee An Indian superfood which is a cross between clarified butter and brown butter – this makes all the difference between a mediocre roti and a superlative one.

Roti A flatbread that is made without yeast, stretched out thinly and layered with ghee. You will learn to make some variations using the same dough, including plain roti, egg roti and coin roti.

Nonya chicken curry A popular chicken curry in Singapore that is especially fragrant with pandan and spices.

A feast of roti, curry and assorted condiments will then be served, family-style joining Pamelia at our table for a stunning lunch and wine. This is an incredible opportunity to learn the secrets of how to make an authentic Nonya curry and flaky roti.
