South Asian Street Foods
Foodie Group



Manchester Jewish Museum Learning Kitchen



We love street food and South-Asian street food is definitely among our top choices. This month our co-host Farrah, who is also a member of the Foodie Group, is bringing her South Asian inspired family street food recipes to the table. We will be making a vegetarian ‘Chana Chaat’ chickpea salad & Samosa Chaat.

Chana Chaat is a tangy and richly spiced vegetable salad with chickpea and chaat, a crispy, savoury snack, popular in India and Pakistan cuisines. Samosa Chaat is another delicious street food dish, where samosas are served with spicy toppings, yoghurt and chutney.

Our Foodie Group workshops are informal, chatty and a chance to meet new people as well as learn about new recipes and cooking traditions.

What you need to know

The workshop lasts 2 hours in total and we can’t guarantee that we will be able to accommodate latecomers.

This activity is designed for adults of all ages.

We use Kosher approved ingredients but the food is not Beth Din supervised. If you have any allergies please email in advance.
