Mukti Banerjee

Teaches at Mukti's Kitchen

Mukti Banerjee started her own small business called Mukti’s Kitchen here in Brooklyn, where she teach food lovers how to prepare healthy and delicious Indian food through hands-on cooking classes. Many people are intimidated by Indian cooking, so she love showing them that it can be quite simple, sharing with them her own version of local food with a few more spices! She have taught hundreds of New Yorkers so far, at classes all around the city and in her own kitchen in Kensington. When she cook the food of her native India, and when she teach the art of cooking to my students, she feel she's carrying forward the art and the spirituality that my mother, aunts and grandmothers have left with her. She also teach vegan and gluten free classes to empower people with dietary restrictions to enjoy flavorful versions of the dishes so well loved at Indian restaurants, but tailored to their needs. She came to America with her husband back in 1986 and after living in Illinois and upstate New York, moved to NYC in 2000. She have worked as a researcher in molecular biology for many years before deciding it was time for me to establish a profession for me that always deeply attracted her. In 2010, therefore, she started my small, home based business Mukti’s Kitchen. Ever since, she have been teaching the art of making healthy and delicious Indian food to her students who come from all walks of life. She feel very happy to have ventured into this world of food, friendship and fun because it has made me extremely satisfied and happy. Recently, a number of publications reported on her profession and passion. Hundreds of students have gone through her cooking class, and gave her positive evaluations and feedback.

Mukti's class is the real deal! It has brought me so much joy this past week cooking with and for my family and friends, and I think all of the recipes will be weekly staples (at least until I can take another class listed on her website!) I’m so grateful to know I can prepare healthy organic and incredible tasting Indian meals at home with time and patience. I learned so much in the kitchen and was happy I could take a “treasure chest” of spices home for a reasonable additional fee. Check out her website and look out for the cookbook soon!

I learned so much from Mukti’s class about using whole spices that I’m excited to try this on my own. And her cooking was better than any restaurant! Thank you!!

This was one of the best classes I've ever taken, and I've taken a bunch (pottery, welding, glassblowing, stunt jumping, pie making etc.). Mukti is such a gracious host and her hospitality is soothing for the soul. She is knowledgeable, authentic, patient and sincere. Her food is a song in your mouth! She taught us about spices, what to look for; the stores to purchase these spices and the health benefits of many of the spices. We asked so many questions about the products in the stores and she took her time to explain everything. To quote her, "Pour your love into it and close the circle of the dish with the spice used for seasoning while cooking as a finishing touch on top-full circle." The dishes were amazing and the rice was so fluffy. I actually didn't want to leave her home- yes we were in her home! Additionally, the Indian spice company SWAD should sponsor her! In closing, this was a memorable experience (a memory) and I would give Muktiskitchen and Mukti my highest recommendation. I want to take more of her classes and am looking forward to giving this class as gifts to friends and family. It was an honor to meet such an amazing human and chef!

This class was incredibly informative and educational! We learned A LOT of recipes and indian cooking secrets during our 3 hour class and received a great take away document with recipes and tips. Not everyone had the chance to get hands-on practice with each dish- we all took turns; however, I wish I had the chance to try cooking a bit of everything to help me learn. Mukti is very eloquent, knowledgable and passionate. She is a wealth of knowledge and will answer any questions you have! I was allowed to take photos but not take any videos.

Mukti is an enthusiastic, engaging and warm teacher. Her philosophy of life infuses her approach to cooking, and to engaging with people in her home through the course. It is a modest size kitchen in her own home so the space is tight for a group, and the opportunities to engage hands-on are limited. But everyone gets to be in on the action one way or another and food and experience are excellent.

I traveled from Albany, NY to take the class, and it was well-worth it. Since the class, I have assembled all the necessary ingredients including spices and herbs. The class takes place in the instructor's home (you'll need to remove your shoes; consider bringing some indoor slippers to wear). I took several food photographs during the class (at various stages of the recipes). Mukthi is friendly and happy to answer questions about Indian cooking. She likes her ghee (clarified butter), but at my request, we kept the recipes vegan. I look forward to recreating the dishes at home (she provided our class with copies of the recipes including Mukthi's Masala). You may wish to go to her website: http://muktiskitchen.com/

In Mukti's kitchen I was able to see, touch, smell, and taste the raw, freshly blended, and cooked spices. It was an evening for the senses. There were four of us with varying requests: two vegans, so no ghee; one sensitive to peppers, so only one dish with mildly hot spices. Given these constraints, Mukti taught us to cook healthy and absolutely delicious appetizers and main dishes.

I enjoyed the course, the instructor, and the food, but the class was not as advertised. Two of the dishes were made with ghee and thus not vegan. Additionally, the course description of the dishes to be prepared did not match the dishes we actually cooked. A substitution is fine, especially given the nature of picking the freshest ingredients, but to advertise five dishes and only make four was disappointing.

What I loved most is her love for quality and everything being fresh and made to order : such as freshly grounding her spices used in her cooking, making the food the upmost flavorful and authentic tasting. I wish I can take this class five more times! You won't ever get this good of food in an Indian restaurant. Most of all, I love Mukti!!! Mukti has a background in biology which makes her a very special kind of cook. You can't get this experience from anyone else!

Cooking with Mukti is an AMAZING experience! I have always been intimidated by cooking Indian food (it just seemed too complex!). I signed up for Mukti's Spice Tour and she took us around the neighborhood and showed us how to recognize quality ingredients - we then returned to her home to actually cook a delicious meal. Mukti showed us cooking techniques that simplified the process - but my favorite part was her enthusiasm for the science behind the cooking. She didn't just show us what to do - she explained why we doing it. Aside from being knowledgeable, Mukti was extremely inviting (the cooking class takes place in her own kitchen) and fun to be around. Can't wait until her cookbook comes out and hope that I'll be able to return for another class soon! My only wish is that I had found her on her website instead of via coursehorse, as it would have been nice to have had the entire fee go to a small business owner.

We then shared the meal we cooked together, and had a lovely discussion post class. She sent us home with copies of the recipes we prepared that day, along with the opportunity to contact her with any questions. She is an excellent cook, her food is delicious.

Mukti is a very talented cook. Although I found it a little difficult to follow as I am not accustomed to the spices and style of cooking, Mukti did a wonderful job complete with handouts and email follow up. I feel that i can contact her with any questions when I try my hand at cooking this style. I think the best part was that I learned many techniques that I can apply to all of my cooking. Some dishes are spicy but you can adjust that when you make your own.

Overall the course was good. The food was tasty and the host was very kind and explained everything.However we felt the host could make improvements: - House was a little shabby and there was an unpleasant smell as one enters the living room. - There was an old dusty fax machine by the dining table. - Mixtures had been left in the blender from a previous class. - Guests were asked to leave abruptly

IT WAS AMAZING!!!! I was like catching up with old friends. The instructions was nicely put together. It was easy and being able to enjoy the fruit of your labor was a major plus. I wasn't a fan of Indian food, but now knowing the work and love that goes into it, I am hooked. Thanks Mukti!!!

Be prepared for a hands on learning experience. I got the course as a birthday gift for my mother and I; she enjoyed everything from start to finish. Chef Mukti welcomed us into her home with tea and delicious food. I recommend this class to every home cook looking to expand their party menus.

Great class, Mukti did a wonderful job of explaining how to recreate dishes in your own home--where to get ingredients, how to store them, and why. The food was great and we all had a good time, but she really wanted to make sure that we could take what we learned back to our own kitchens. Highly recommended.

Mukti was incredible! She is such a warm soul and took so much care to ensure we fully experienced not only the ingredients and process of cooking the dished but also the love that made the meals that we cooked so incredibly delicious. I would recommend this class (and Mukti especially) to anyone who loves cooking, as this was an amazing experience that we have been recommending to all our friends since we left. We look forward to our next class (of many more) with Mukti.
