Indian Cooking

Dharamsala Animal Rescue has partnered with Mini Seth to offer monthly cook-alongs to our supporters.

DAR Founder, Deb Jarrett, met Mini Seth while living in India when she needed help with International adoptions. Mini, who lives in Delhi and feeds and cares for 40-plus dogs in her neighborhood, stepped up to the task. The two became fast friends and continued to help each other with rescue work over the years. During the onset of Covid 19, the two decided to partner and offer Indian cooking classes to make lockdown a bit more bearable to raise funds.

Subscribe to our Cook Along list to receive monthly alerts on classes, our cookbook, and more. All registration fees are split 50/50 to help dogs at DAR and Mini’s dogs.

“Everything was great!! We loved being able to see the pan you were cooking in.” ~ Janis Rosenthal, President at Soi Dog

“Mini it was amazingly wonderful!! The setup of your 2 views was really effective and having both of you “trade off” one talking and one cooking was ever so helpful. The commentary throughout was also useful and made things easy. And of course that food is DELICIOUS!” ~ Shirley Garrett, Chef

“Just finished my third Online Cook-Along with Deepika & Mini!
Again, Deepika and Mini excelled themselves with a wonderfully organised class. These classes are so well thought out and skillfully adapted to suit the time we have.
Likewise, ingredients are kept relatively simple and alternatives are suggested, so we don’t have difficulty sourcing them in different parts of the world.” ~ Stephanie
