Najma's Indian Cookery Classes launched in the summer of 2013 in a church hall in Raynes Park. After a fantastic response, Shermin Ali, founder of Najma's opened the doors to her home kitchen. Shermin's classes are small and informative with a complete hands-on approach. Students learn the essential techniques of Indian Cookery and how to use the various spices needed to prepare traditional home-style recipes from across the Indian subcontinent.

"I wanted to say a massive thank you to you for the wonderful biriyani lesson on Saturday. The biriyani was excellent. A big hit with my husband. I was so impressed at how non complicated the whole process was."
