What is Shikshak?
SHIKSHAK is a cookery membership platform that will enable you to master Indian cookery in your very own kitchen with your "shikshak", or teacher, with you for every slice, season and stir along the way. See it as your ever-growing video cookbook of detailed recipes with the bonus of unrestricted access to live cookery classes and having a chef on speed dial... just in case!
INTRODUCING YOUR Shikshak
Monica Haldar has been teaching Indian cookery for over 10 years after founding The Spice Club – her labour of love to showcase authentic Indian cookery in her own cookery schools and pop-up restaurants in Manchester and Birmingham. Her events grew through word-of-mouth, from humble beginnings to national acclaim, an Amazon Prime TV series and a 6-month wait-list for attendance to her cookery classes.

Cookbooks are great and are an incredible resource of knowledge, but the nuances of cookery and bossing your kitchen needs a personal touch. Monica explains why she chose a video platform to connect with you...

"SHIKSHAK has made me fall in love with cooking Indian food. The recipes are easy to follow, as are the live cook alongs!"
I now find that the food I have cooked from Shikshak recipes is better and fresher tasting than that of our local Indian restaurants. Friends and family agree too!
Fantastic way to learn how to make authentic Indian food. Monica is a fun and informative teacher and everything I have made online with her has been delicious.
Superb tuition, advice & friendly community with recipes, demonstrations, videos and weekly clinics with our fantastic “shikshak” Monica.
Shikshak is a revelation! The live classes are great fun, the recipes are authentic & easy to follow. Classes are suitable for beginners and more experienced cooks.
Shikshak has made me fall in love with cooking Indian food again! The recipes are super clear and easy to follow, as are the live cook alongs. Monica is a great teacher.
I've been using the online recipes that Shikshak has and they are so well presented! I've made fresh naan for the first time and they turned out brilliant.
