About the Chef

Raviraj Pare, is a designer by day. He frequently spends his evening and weekends recreating the taste and texture of his favorite dishes from his home in the mountain ranges of the South West of India. His home town of Madikeri, in the state of Karnataka, is a biological hotspot with a wide variety of flora and fauna that have influenced the cuisine of that region for hundreds of years. When Ravi moved to Hawai’i four years ago, he was surprised and comforted to learn that so many of the plants that he grew up eating also thrive here in Hawai’i.  India is a vast and diverse country in every way, from spoken languages, to religion, to cusine.  You would have a difficult, if not impossible time finding any of these Southern Indian dishes Ravi is sharing tonight in restaurants, they are regional family recipes that he has put his own spin on over the years. All the dishes are vegan and gluten free.

This chutney offers a comforting and hearty flavor that compliments a rainy and cold day in the mountains….whether in India or Hawai’i.

A delightfully simple dish, often referred to simply as daal. Every Indian household has their own take on the classic daal recipe.
