It was a hands-on experience.Haneeda is a very personable teacher.She is a very warm person. It was a homey xperience. She makes you feel as if you are in your own kitchen.The recipe print outs are easy to follow . You even get a lesson on the different Indian spices.This wonderful experience ended when we sat down at the formal dining room table and savored the foods that we made. You also leave with a goody bag of spices.

I've been wanting to take a cooking class for some time, but as I am a vegetarian, my options are limited. So, I was really excited when a friend told me about Haneeda's Kitchen because she offers not just one, but TWO vegetarian cooking class options!

Haneeda's class was very hands-on and enjoyable. The diverse variety of Indian spices has always been kind of intimidating to me, but Haneeda provided thorough explanations which I took to my own kitchen. Her upbeat personality and love for cooking makes the class fun. She prepared a nice folder of all the recipes and the food was fantastic. I'm looking forward to another class!

The cooking class was great. The recipes were simple and easy to follow.

I took the South Indian Favorites class, and it was great! The experience was very cool, and the food was incredible. I cook Indian food at home, but this was a great introduction to some spices that I was unfamiliar with. Haneeda is a great teacher, and very personable. I highly recommend the South Indian Favorites!

My girlfriend and I took a Saturday morning class and we absolutely loved Haneeda and all the food we made. She expertly walked us through making 6 indian dishes from start to finish. All of the dishes were easy to make in any kitchen and were super delicious. If you have even a moderate interest in Indian food, you will love Haneeda's classes.

Indian restaurants are my very favorite and I have always wanted to know how to prepare Indian food. Many unsuccessful attempts at home convinced me I needed to learn from someone experienced in cooking authentic Indian dishes. What a treat when a friend gave me a gift certificate to Haneeda’s Kitchen. I attended my first class (Vegetarian #2) on a Saturday morning; the experience was unforgettable. We made 6 dishes, all of them delicious and easy to make. Haneeda limits class size so all of us were able to work as a team and share in the cooking of each dish. I am anxious to take another class and certainly will do so in the near future. Tonight’s menu is - Indian cottage cheese cubes in a creamy green spinach sauce (Saag Paneer or Paalak Paneer) and basmati rice cooked with aromatic whole spices and a colorful mix of vegetables (Vegetable Pulao). Yum!

Haneeda is an excellent teacher, very knowledgeable in Indian cuisine and puts a great program together that is both fun and easy to follow. My 10 and 9 year old daughters can not wait to take another class now that Haneeda has empowered us all with the ability to cook some delicious and healthy Indian favorites.

This class was a GREAT birthday present!
My husband loves Indian food, but I don't know how to cook it. I was always very intimidated by all the different names of spices and don't know where to start. Haneeda was very patient and showed us step by step to create 5 delicious dishes for a meal. I also got 2 well-packaged small portion spices from her, I just love the smell of them!! Now my husband can enjoy a home made Indian meal!! No more Trader Joe's package Indian food...
3/31/2011 07:24:19 am
Great time! My boyfriend set this up as a Valentine's gift and we were delighted with the class Haneeda taught. It was a nice small class size so it was very hands on and you know everything that is taking place so you don't miss something when you get home and try to cook. We were on the front page of the Philadelphia inquirer today with Haneeda and another student in her kitchen! Recommended!
4/2/2011 11:55:46 am
I thoroughly enjoyed my "hands-on" cooking class with Haneeda. My wife arranged the class as a birthday gift, which was very unique and much appreciated. Haneeda is a great and personable teacher. She provided an excellent overview of the many spices used in all dishes. We prepared Butter Chicken (Murgh Makhani), Cauliflower with Green Peas, Eggplant (Khatte Baigan), Naan (bread), and Sooji Halwa (dessert). Every dish was excellent. I can't wait to try out the recipes at home. I highly recommend Haneeda's cooking class to anyone interested in fine Indian cuisine.
5/6/2011 04:07:15 am
I would definitely recommend a cooking class with Haneeda. She is very personable and makes you feel very welcomed in her home. The food is out of this world and I am going to sign up for another class ASAP. Btw I took the vegetarian I class.
5/10/2011 04:21:09 pm
Cooking with Haneeda was a lot of fun. Haneeda is very accommodating, I wanted to learn to make two dishes, she found a way to incorporate the dishes I wanted to make. It goes without saying she has a passion for what she does and is damm good at it. I will definitely recommend her to others. I am sure I will want to take another class soon.
5/16/2011 03:46:39 am
I really enjoyed the class and feel more comfortable with making sauces.
5/20/2011 03:00:51 am
Fabulous Class! I attended the class with 5 other girlfriends and we had a great time! The food was delicious and the class was very hands-on. This would be a great gift for house warming, birthday, anniversary, retirement or girls night out! I hope to attend a class in the future. I would highly recommend.
5/22/2011 04:57:33 am
What a fun night! I would definitely recommend a cooking class with Haneeda. Not only do you learn the recipes and tips to making delicious Indian food...you get to eat it as well. Haneeda is so sweet and we all enjoyed the evening!
6/10/2011 12:38:30 pm
Cooking with Haneeda was a fun night with delicious food, but by far the best part of it was all of the incredible Indian food I have cooked in the months since then! I really learned from her. Not only have I recreated all of the dishes I learned with Haneeda (several times with with delicious success) I also felt like I learned enough about Indian cooking to try new recipes. As a result I have branched out and been cooking other dishes as well. I truly gained some Indian cooking skills as a result of this one night. My husband and friends are in heaven!
7/28/2011 06:34:28 am
Thank you, Haneeda, for making our staff outing such a fun and delicious experience! We learned so much and can't wait to try the recipes at home. Highly recommend this class!
8/3/2011 05:04:20 am
We had a great time and learned how to make raita, paneer butter masala, cauliflower with green peas, peas pulao and balti potato. How fun to learn and eat together. A perfect day! Haneeda is a great teacher and an amazing cook! Thank you!

We had a great time on Saturday, Haneeda! Your class was fun and makes Indian cooking easy. We can't wait to try these recipes at home. Thank you!

Thank you, Haneeda! The class on Sunday was fun and the food great. You presented the food and recipes in such a simple and clear way in a relaxed atmosphere. I am planning on making the dishes from class at home along with many others. I'm sure my naan will "poof!" I will most certainly attend another class and bring some friends! Thanks again!
10/21/2011 03:54:18 pm
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH HANEEDA. TONIGHT I ASKD MY GIRL TO MARRY ME. NOT ONLY DID YOU MAKE THE NIGHT PERFECT AND MEMORABLE, BUT THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS. I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND YOUR CLASSES FOR ANYONE. HOWEVER, IF THEIR ARE ANY GUYS OUT THERE LOOKING FOR THAT PERFECT MOMENT, HANEEDA CAN CREATE IT AND MORE. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, FROM THE BOTH OF US. YOU ARE TRULY AND AMAZING PERSON.
12/3/2011 05:27:26 am
I can't tell you how much Jim and I enjoyed the class. You are a wonderful teacher and made us feel right at home. And I can't thank you enough for the special Birthday halvah you made for us. We _will_ be back.
2/7/2012 11:34:23 pm
Thank you so much for your class on 2/7/12. I had only had Indian food once and was not impressed. Your class was great and the food was wonerful. You made the cooking seem simple and easy to do. We made Balti potatoes which were great and Channa masala which was excellent, and I didn't like chick peas. I am very excited about cooking these at home. I want to come back and bring my son who raves about Indian food and would love to learn to cook it. Thank you.
2/8/2012 04:47:59 am
I must say I was pleasantly suprised by the evening presentation at middletown library. I have never had Indian food and I am not Vegan so I didnt know what to expect. While i think the class might have been geared to people who had some inkling of what was going on Haneeda answered all questions as honestly as she could and was easy to follow as a newbie. Very friendly and straightforward on her concept of healthy Indian cusine that doesnt require a ton of ingredients or time.
2/9/2012 01:10:36 am
The cooking demonstration at the Middletown Library was fantastic. Haneeda was so warm and personable, and explained everything in detail along the way. The best part is that I left with recipes, feeling that I could absolutely make the dishes myself. Thanks!
2/9/2012 11:36:49 am
Haneeda, your class at Middletown Free Library was fantastic!! Thanks so much for coming and teaching everyone about Indian food and how to prepare the dishes in a healthy way. Both dishes were delicious! You are a wonderful teacher and human being!
2/14/2012 03:42:44 am
I attended the Indian Cooking Demonstration at the Middletown Library. We made Balti Potato and Chandi Masala. Everything tasted delicious. I'm excited to introduce these dishes to my family. Thank you for sharing your cuisine with the community.
3/1/2012 04:34:19 am
This was my second class with Haneeda; I so enjoyed the first that I knew I wanted to try another class. I also had a friend join me to share the experience of how easy and delicious cooking Indian food at home can be. Haneeda greeted us at the door and showed us the way to her new teaching kitchen. That in itself was a delight, however, the menu she planned was a true pleasure. The main course, Chicken Kheema Mattar, unbelievably delicious and a snap to make; Aloo Tikki (warm, crisp patties with potato and spices) were fun to ‘construct’ and could be served as an appetizer or as a vegetable side dish with any meal - not just Indian; Basmati Rice Pulao was a favorite on my first visit and did not disappoint this time time either; and the Raita - we used crunchy vegetables and real sour cream for a thick and creamy compliment to our exciting, spicy, and delectable meal. Both classes I have taken with Haneeda have been a true culinary adventure and I can’t wait to take another class - soon!
3/2/2012 02:21:25 am
Our Haneeda’s kitchen experience on 2/25/12 was just a delight in every way. Well organized, thoughtful, printed and personal instruction with display of and thoughtful background about Indian spices and ingredients from the lovely, energetic, bright, cheerful and knowledgeable Haneeda herself. We did everything to give us confidence that we could do it again from recipe; selection of ingredients, hand preparation of each course and individual work at the stove. And was it ever delicious when done! Better than all the Indian restaurants we’ve ever been to. Paul

Haneeda is a great teacher, so warm and welcoming- you feel like you're eating at a friend's house! We learned all of the techniques, spices, and places to find ingredients so it's easy to replicate at home. As self-proclaimed indian foodies (we eat it at least once a week...) we were thrilled with our lesson and highly recommend it!
5/2/2012 02:10:54 am
Smiling faces and full bellies. I had a great time, too. I'm looking forward to taking another class, but next time time a vegetarian class.
5/2/2012 02:12:41 am
It was so nice to meet you and to learn how to cook all those delicious dishes! The Khatte Baingan was my favorite!!
Lisa & Mike
5/8/2012 02:43:26 am
We had a wonderful time and that was in part to your kindness and warmth. You are a wonderful teacher and you made us feel at home. We went out Sunday and bought a rice cooker! Our son helped me make the rice and our daughter helped Mike make the Channa masala. It tasted great! Thank you for the spices!
5/21/2012 02:31:09 am
I took a private class with Haneeda as a birthday present from my mother. Haneeda is such a professional and has a way of making everyone feel warm and welcome. She did a great job of being both instructional and fun! Not to mention, the food was delicious - by far the best samosas I have ever had - and we learned a TON about our favorite cuisine. I highly recommend Haneeda's classes and I can't wait to try out these recipes at home!
6/3/2012 02:11:21 am
Loved the vegetarian class! It was a good start to Indiane cuisine. Haneeda explains the spices in detail and I loved everyone of them. Went with my daughter, her friend and her mother. Food was delicious. Will make for my family. Was a nice time out. Looking forward to more classes.
7/7/2012 01:11:08 pm
Great blog, love the template.
Haneeda does a wonderful job of demystifying the art of Indian cooking. The hands on approach to cooking these meals really helps you learn how to make these wonderful dishes. The best part of the class though is being able to eat the delicious meal at the end! Haneeda sends you home with the recipes from the class, which are easy to follow and repeat. Thanks Haneeda for such a wonderful experience!
8/26/2012 10:45:43 pm
I was looking for something about kitchen..,Thank you for posting the great blog……I found it quiet interesting, hopefully you will keep posting such blogs…
8/28/2012 01:29:40 am
Thanks for the nice blog It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to come here! Thanks for sharing the information with us.
9/15/2012 07:07:08 am
Haneeda teaches and cooks with an open heart. It was a joy to be learning about masrala (the base of spices) and preparation of the delicious foods of her culture in her beautiful home. Thank you Haneeda for welcoming us into this new experience that will feed our souls for years to come. Yummy!

We have taken four classes with Haneeda, three group and one private. She is an excellent and organized teacher, providing thorough explanations and getting everyone involved to create a fun atmosphere. The private class was a birthday celebration, and Haneeda truly went the extra mile to customze this class and make it a special celebraton. We enjoyed all the recipes she presented, and have been successful in recreating them at home. We are looking forward to taking more classes with Haneeda.
Having taken two classes with Haneeda, I wanted to add my appreciation of her calsses as well. I have an Indian background but none of the culinary abilities. Haneeda makes Indian cooking easier and non-threatening, I think. My son and his girl friend who took lessons also enjoyed them
2/2/2013 10:38:12 am
I've been obsessed with Indian cooking for some time, so I was ecstatic when I found out about Haneeda's cooking school. What I didn't expect was how easy she made it, enlisting our help to effortlessly create four dishes. Haneeda has a passion for cooking that made her an absolute joy to work with, and I look forward to returning to my second class!
4/22/2013 03:00:52 am
I had such a lovely time at Haneeda's Kitchen! Haneeda is very friendly, insightful, helpful, and gives you personalized tips to make your Indian food taste just right. We learned how to make chicken tikka masala, basmati rice pulao, garlic/butter naan, and mango lassi. Everything was so tasty and delicious! I'm looking forward to taking another class soon.
11/10/2013 08:19:07 am
Thank you, Haneeda, for such a lovely class this morning in your beautiful kitchen. You successfully make Indian cooking easy and approachable (and super scrumptious)! I can't wait to give your recipes a try at home. I will definitely be back for more lessons. Please schedule a dosas class!!
1/6/2014 03:12:23 am
Thank you for such a wonderful cooking experience, Haneeda. We had a wonderful time in our private class. Haneeda was so accommodating. She helped us how to make 5 different Indian dishes and taught us how to make them VEGAN. She even researched a butter substitute and was open to trialing it with us. I myself don't do the majority of the cooking in my household and she made me feel very comfortable and confident. I know we will be making the recipes again soon. The food was SOOOO good! I highly recommend Haneeda's kitchen and can't wait to take another class.

My husband and I have enjoyed eating out at Indian restaurants for years, and as a surprise Mothers Day gift I received a cooking lesson voucher to Haneeda's Kitchen. I got to go on the website to choose which day to take the lesson based on what was being offered.
9/27/2014 02:32:03 pm
We had such a great private class today for my husband's birthday. Haneeda was a great teacher, patient, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. She taught us some of our favorite dishes and went out of her way to make my husband's birthday gift extra special. We got to eat what we made at a lovely table and it was so good we couldn't believe we had actually made it! We are hoping to practice what we learned and then go back for more training.
11/10/2014 02:04:56 pm
Haneeda was a warm, welcoming, and great teacher who differentiated her instruction based upon clients. She took the fear factor out of cooking Indian dishes and exuded her love of cooking. It was a perfect ending to a long weekend with my brother. I can't wait to go shopping for my spices and recreate our meal!
11/21/2014 09:16:31 am
My daughter and I loved the class. Haneeda is a wonderful teacher and really well organized. The food we cooked was delicious. We're definitely inspired to try the recipes at home, and we'll return for more!
12/7/2014 02:12:31 pm
Had a great time learning to cook with Haneeda! I would highly recommend this experience. She walked us through all the recipes while we were making them and explained everything so well. The food was amazing and I look forward to trying the recipes at home. Thank you Haneeda for a wonderful class.

I signed up my girlfriend and I for the Valentines Day class and it was better than what I expected in the sense that the atmosphere was friendly, inviting and relaxed. We felt like we were guests for dinner. Haneeda was friendly, informative and comforting. The group were a part of, there were 7 of us, was energetic as well.
2/22/2015 07:59:13 am
Although its been a week since I attended Haneeda's cooking class, I still remember every detail! It was an outstanding classes and I learned so much. I've always thought that cooking Indian food was difficult because I didn't know when to add ingredients, how long to cook them and basic information about the taste of certain spices and why they are used in certain dishes. Now, I know it all! If you love Indian food as I do, and would like to learn how to cook it yourself or just to enjoy the food in a warm and friendly environment, I highly recommend Haneeda's kitchen!
3/5/2015 02:36:52 am
I was looking for an authentic cooking class and found it! I will be back! The food today was fantastic!!! Haneeda is a darling too! Donna :)
3/5/2015 02:37:30 am
I LOVE Indian food, but I have always been intimidated of cooking with the spices. Haneeda makes it very simple--I bought 3 of the spices immediately after class, and I am buying the rest tomorrow--I cannot wait to make the food on my own. The class was so much fun, and the food was absolutely amazing! If you have ever wanted to know how to make Indian food, you have to go to Haneeda's Kitchen!
5/27/2015 04:23:56 am
haneeda , Thank you for a very fun morning. Liz and I enjoyed your class very much. I hope when we repeat the menu it comes out as good as your cooking .
12/8/2015 08:28:53 am
My daughter (10 y,o,) and I took Haneedas's class this past w/e. We had an awesome time. Besides just jumping in and cooking Haneeda explained the entire process, all the diff spices, and some time saving steps so it would be easier for us to make this at home. She made us feel very welcome and explained everything so even us cooking beginners could understand. Everyone in the class was super friendly and meal we all made was incredible.. I would def recommend giving this a try; we all had a blast and got to eat a great meal too.
2/2/2016 04:24:39 pm
Haneeda is incredibly personable and knowledgeable about Indian cooking. My boyfriend and I attended this class to celebrate our anniversary, and we couldn't be more pleased about the class. My favorite was the palak paneer, but everything was delicious! I made the palak paneer at home today, and it turned out just as good! I highly recommend this class!
2/2/2016 04:25:54 pm
I love Indian food and wanted to learn more about the spices. Haneedas' kitchen was a great gift to give my partner for his birthday and also learn more myself !! We had a hands on experience with Haneeda. She was patient, funny, down to earth, knowledgeable and had lots of practical tips for people like me who don't cook a lot.
2/15/2016 06:13:37 pm
It was a wonderful experience and I would certainly recommend it to anyone. It was a valentine day activity for my wife and me. We truly enjoyed the experience.
2/20/2016 09:37:23 pm
My husband and I attended Haneeda's Kitchen Indian cooking school after receiving a gift certificate. The entire experience was wonderful from start to finish! Haneeda is friendly and outgoing and made the class so much fun. She creates a very relaxed environment and everything is very well organized down to the last detail. We learned four different recipes and everyone was involved in the cooking process. We learned about and used many different Indian spices and made four amazing recipes. With Haneeda as our guide, everything was perfectly timed so that we could sit down at the end of the class and enjoy the fabulous dinner we made. I plan to make all of the recipes at home and will probably start with the samosas, which were superb and will be great for entertaining. Haneeda even followed up with me a few days later on a question I had about changing the samosa frying method, after testing the alternate method herself! We highly recommend Haneeda's Kitchen and are looking forward to taking more classes there.
2/29/2016 12:06:45 pm
I celebrated my 30th birthday with Haneeda's Kitchen and I kid you not, everything about it was wonderful. We had a private class with my friends and family. Haneeda has a lovely home and she makes it yours as soon as you walk in the door. It a was hands on experience, with thorough instruction and impressive execution. Haneeda has everything prepped and ready, the timeline worked out just right weaving 4 different dishes together for our meal! She surprised me with special birthday decorations and dessert at the end! If you are looking to try something new and you love to cook, this is BY FAR the way to go! We all had a total blast. Haneeda is wonderful. So glad she shares her skills and knowledge with all of us! Hope you enjoy too.
3/10/2016 07:43:40 am
This was our second visit to Haneeda's Kitchen, we made a family day out of it w/ myself, my wife and 10 year old daughter. We all had a blast and learned even more the second outing plus got to enjoy very tasty dishes at the end of the class. We have duplicated several of her dishes at home already, she tries to make them as simple as possible. I most definitely recommend as a family day and also for couples and singles too. We have already signed up for round three, keep up the good work Haneeda.
3/14/2016 04:55:22 pm
My husband and I have 8 children and they all love Indian food. That restaurant bill can be expensive! I was so excited to find Haneeda's Kitchen in a previous visit to PA that I booked another trip specifically to take a class from her. SHE WAS AMAZING!! We were trying to learn so many things, I was afraid the class would have a frantic vibe about it, but it was laid back, relaxing and an incredible experience! She was very organized and flowed easily from one thing to the next. She explained the spices and taught us how to cook our families favorite Indian dishes and explained everything in an easy to understand way. Her teaching style and tips made me feel reassured that cooking these recipes would be easy and doable at home! I am so so very excited to share what I've learned with my children! Thank you Haneeda! If I get out here again, we will be back!!
3/14/2016 04:56:17 pm
What an amazing class! For those of you that love Indian food but need to master the spices, let Haneeda show you the way! The class inspired me to cook Indian at home; I'm off to buy my rice cooker, garam masala and ghee! Thanks Haneeda! We'll be back!
4/9/2016 10:24:35 am
Thank you for an enjoyable, educational and inviting cooking class, followed by our product of a delicious Indian Vegan dinner at the close. You certainly have things down pat in such an organized manner, and do a great job of convincing your students that we can make delicious Indian cuisine as easy as pie! Loved your set-up and everything behind the tasty dishes.
4/9/2016 10:25:16 am
Prepared a full meal together learning ingredients, prep, handling spices, where to shop, and lots of cooking tips. Then we sat down together to a tasty meal. Felt Julia Child's approval of it all. Definitely plan to join Haneeda for another class. Bon appetit!
4/12/2016 02:44:06 pm
I attended one of Haneeda's classes this past weekend and it was really excellent. Haneeda is warm, engaging, so knowledgeable and a self acknowledged "foodie" so you know that what we cooked was delicious. She should be on the Food Network. The class was so organized and fun. We learned about Indian spices, the importance of cooking in layers to let the spices meld, how to be patient with yeast and how to be a little free flowing with the recipes. There were hands on activities and a full sit down meal served family style of what we cooked. Can't wait to go back for another class.
5/1/2016 08:36:57 pm
I just recreated the meal we did on April 9th and it turned out great. Thank you for the class and great instructions. Looking forward to a next class.
1/18/2019 11:33:32 pm
I have attended yours class and it was really awesome. and lookin forward some more this type of recipe article from yours side. thank you once again for sharing the article.
2/23/2019 05:31:38 pm
I attended a class this morning and it was great! Haneeda could not have been friendlier. The food was delicious and I can’t wait to try the recipes at home. I would highly recommend one of her classes.
6/3/2019 04:53:30 pm
I can't imagine a better way to learn the nuances of cooking Indian food. Haneeda was terrific, she was organized,informative, engaging and the food was delicious! I highly recommend it!
