GymKhana – 26 April 2020

Gymkhana” is an Anglo-Indian expression, which is derived from the Persian word “Jamat-khana”. Most gymkhanas have a Gymkhana Club associated with them, a term coined during British Raj for gentlemen’s club.

In India, the term gymkhana is commonly used to refer to a gymnasium. More generally, gymkhana refers to a social and sporting club in the Indian subcontinent, and in other Asian countries including Malaysia, Thailand, Burma and Singapore, as well as in East Africa.

Together we will be learning how to make a few of the Colonial foods created during the days of the Raj, showcased in Gymkhana. Our objective today is to recreate those Anglo-Indian dishes with the modern twist. We hope you enjoy the result.

Proposed sample items: 

  • Steamed Asparagus and Baby corn
  • Lemon Duck Tikka, papers and green beans chutney
  • Sea Bass Dopiyaza, aubergine, spring onion and blood orange
  • Bengal Coconut Crumbles, dry fruits, honey yoghurt
