An Indian Inspired Dinner

What a terrific evening with fabulous people.
I don't think I have ever done a completely Indian inspired menu for a dinner party.
Well this past Saturday was the test.....
I spent ALL day Friday chopping and sautéing and measuring all those wonderful Indian spices.
My house smelled like an Indian spice market..
Saturday we spent cleaning and organizing chairs and tables.
Then it was time to test the apple martinis and wait for our guests.



Here was the menu
Apple martinis
Vegetable Samosas
Chicken Tikka
Lamb Saag
Mixed vegetable curry
Basmati rice flavoured with cumin, cardamom, and cinnamon
Mango panna cotta with mango puree and raspberry

Lots of delicious wines and finishing with decaff coffees and scotch (for some)
Lovely Hostess gifts.......

It was a a lot of fun for us but I know a couple lil ones that are happy these festivities are done.....

"Don't let the door hit you in the bum "

"Thank goodness I have my arm back"

What a lovely meal you had and the table setting was beautiful. Sounds like everyone enjoyed themselves. The meal sounds interesting, although I don't know Indian foods all that well. Would love to try them some time.
