Filled to the brim with authentic flavours and spilling out cookery prowess, Mela is an elegant restaurant that explores Indian cuisine from locations in Shaftesbury Avenue and Redhill in Surrey. The restaurants garnish knowledge with classes on tandoori and tikka, handing out chef’s hats to soon-to-be connoisseurs. Classes range from rice and seasoning to mango lassi creation, and come in levels to suit individual ability.
In a three-hour kitchen learnathon, up to 12 budding connoisseurs can get veggie-friendly in the capable hands of one of Mela’s spice maestros. A series of demonstrations will unlock the secrets behind Indian street food, with preparation of dainty dishes such as potato cake and aloo tikka, topped off with a mint and coriander dip. Students can then get their hands dirty as they cook up a three-course with the likes of masterpiece of paneer mutter, khatta channa pindi with chick peas, and mushroom hara pyaz with green onions. Classmates can gobble their creations together, or take nibbles home for a spot of dinner-time gloating.

Mela has an interesting menu that owes more to traditional Indian cooking than to the standard korma/madras/chicken tikka masala formula to be found elsewhere.
