Guests for dinner. What is the menu?
For me, it is usually the latter. There is a menu which I have made at least once for each guest who has been invited over for a meal. In fact, its become a kind of family joke, esp with my Mom.
Mom: So, what's the plan for the weekend?
Me: We have invited a few friends over for dinner.
Mom: Great. What are you planning to cook? Or are you ordering food?
Me: Hmmm. We'll order the snacks. But I'll be making the main course. Not sure what to cook.
Mom: I know what you are going to cook. *Giggles*
So, the menu turns out to be Matar Paneer, Gobhi Alu, Boondi ka Raita, Puri and Flavoured Rice. Yup, I find it the easiest to cook and does not require any advance preparation like lentils / beans to be soaked overnight.
No recipes today (maybe later), but just a glimpse of what I cooked when we had guests a few days back!
Table is all set...
