haiyo... naanum varalaamaa? please.. peach.. Pathu peru invite pannureenga whats one more.. :pray:

Ellarum kudukkira menu paarthaa ... yum..

Non-Veg ? ? (sorry enakku ellame vegetarian thaan.. so let me suggest some meat stuff..)
I assume steak is a no-no and fish would be not-exciting (because of its lingering odor)

So.. (assume 4 non-veg stuff)
1) Tandoori chicken (do it with drumsticks and serve it with sliced lemons and grilled onions)
2) Mutton cutlet - well done, with some tomato sauce

both 1 & 2 could be used as nice appetizers too..

3) Chicken curry (Use it with some nice keerai.. :) ) Low on butter.. more healthy :wink:
4) Mutton Biriyani.. Nothing to beat it.. :b:

But what all of them need is some one to taste and see if the salt, spice etc are OK.. I mean, some one has to make sure that things are exactly the way you want it, right? hmm.. being a very helpful guy, I would like to volunteer.. :) :) :)

Enjoy pannungo, anitam.. :)

ada paavi madhu, can you eat all these in one session? வயிரா வண்ணாந்தாழ ியா? :lol:

Anitam, this is not fair. போயும் போயும் ஒரு கோகுலத்துக ் கண்ணனை கூப்பிட்டு இருக்கீங்க . ராமன், லக்ஷ்மணன் எல்லாம் விட்டுட்டீ ங்க. This itself should be a victory for Krisna team. ( Sorry for cross reference, but cant help it )..

I would like to add my few cents but already people have dollars worth menus. சாப்பிடணும ்னா நான் எப்பவும் ரெடி. மெனு சொல்லனும்ன ா கொஞ்சம் கஷ்டம்.ரெச பி சொல்லணும்ன ா, விடு ஜூட். :ee: :ee:

you Poor thing Anita
....if u ever cook all those food stuff on the above posts (especially by Madhu) u'll find urself unable to move on the day of the party....remember ppl arn't just after food...they want ur sincillating company too !

do loads of samosas and stuff which resembles it...and freeze ....tht's what Mummy does.

a kewl finger food...is sweet potatoes ..washed and sliced into thick chunks....then drizzle bit olive oil on top (u can also add any spices or herbs of ur choice) then stick it in the oven till it cooks.....tht is the extent of my cooking

for sumthing colourful and healthy u can make avacado-tomato-sweet.corn-cucumber (chop everything into small cubes) salad...and for non-veg add canned tuna ....dressing couple spoon of mustard mixed with white wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar if u prefer...plus add salt and pepper...can be made a day in advance...just add dressing at the last minute

cakes eggless and other can be done in advance too...
chinese spring rolls too can be made and frozen
if u wanna impress ur non-veg guests ...u can have small canapes of caviar on crakers

for dessert u can make creme-brule or Vattalappam...which again can be made in advance ...and refrigerated..


Well Anitam Good luck....hope u have a great party !

(If I get an invite I'll get my Mum to make it for ya :wink: ....how's tht for a bribe... :sm11: ...just kidding.... :ee: )

Holy Huuhhhh !! I just suggested few of my favorites. :Ksp: :Ksp:

MY MoM wouldn't have heard most of this dishes :? :? She is a sea food specialist...

On weekends I sap her energy by asking for super duper dishes. But patiently she prepares everything with loads of love in it :D :D I miss her :cry: :cry: On a typical weekend she makes Plain rice and Chicken Briyani ..

Soup would be either chicken or Knorr tomato soup with garlic Bread :D

Fish Fry :sm11: :sm11: -- quarter inch thinck Slices of salmon marinated in mixture salt, chilli powder , crushed garlic without peeling skin ( I dont know why but tastes yummy ) and pan fried in low heat and not deep fried .. You can garnish with stint of lemon and onion :D :D

Then boneless lamb curry .. heavily spiced up ..... :D or well cleaned Shrimp masala.

I skip Rasam and buttermilk but they are part of our meal.

Fruit salad is my preparation :( :( .. just grapes and apple, sometimes pineapple diced in cubes sprinkled with salt and pepper .. :D :D

Let me know guys , if I missing anything as a part of my weekend meal. :b:


GUYS dont think I hog :Ksp: :Ksp: :Ksp:
