Explore the culinary traditions of Agra with a cooking demonstration and in-home meal! Nagma lives just 10 minutes from the Taj Mahal and opens her home to travelers who are curious to learn more about the local way of cooking. Nagma is a seasoned homecook who believes in serving her family tasty, healthy food prepared with natural ingredients. She grinds all of her spices and mills her own wheat flour for homemade flatbreads, such as chapati, roti, naan and puri. She even makes her own paneer (fresh cheese), ghee (clarified butter), dahi (yogurt) and butter at home!

Using these natural, healthy ingredients Nagma will demonstrate how to make a few dishes and then you'll gather at her table to taste the homemade meal.

This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Nagma lives with her husband, Wasi Haider, and their sons Shiron and Shibab, in a beautiful 3-story bungalow located a 10-minute drive from the Taj Mahal. Step out onto their terrace to view of one of the domes of the Taj Mahal! The family lives on the ground floor of the house and the top two floors are used as a homestay.

Please note that this is a cooking demonstration, not a hands-on cooking class. Join Nagma in her kitchen to watch her prepare 2-3 dishes such as shammi kebabs (mincemeat kebabs) and aloo gobi (North Indian potato and cauliflower) or paneer (fresh Indian cheese), that you will eat along with other prepared dishes eaten with rice and Indian breads.
