Indian Sweets for Hanukkah

Hosted By: The Nosher

Join The Nosher and learn to make sweet Indian treats for Hanukkah with Chef Joanna Nissim.

In this online event, Joanna Nissim — a food writer and cooking instructor specializing in Indian cuisine — will guide you through the art of preparing mouthwatering Indian sweets that will add unique flavors and textures to your Hanukkah celebrations.

Joanna will teach you how to make gulab jamun, deep fried dough balls flavored with sweet syrup, and zalebi, sweet, fried flour snacks shaped like pretzels or circles.

Why choose Indian sweets for Hanukkah?

Indian sweets add vibrant colors and rich flavors to any festive occasion. These sweets are both fried, and eating fried foods is a Hanukkah custom, recalling the miracle of the oil lasting for eight days instead of only one.

Who can join?

This event is open to everyone, regardless of your cooking skills or Jewish affiliation. All you need is a passion for cooking and a readiness to celebrate Hanukkah.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn how to make Indian sweets for Hanukkah with Joanna Nissim. Reserve your spot now!

Joanna Nissim lives in London, where she hosts demonstrations and private cooking lessons. She’s passionate about all food, especially her family’s Sephardi recipes. She posts her recipes on Instagram at @Joanna_nissim.
