Remember how I threw a desi 4th of July BBQ? Well it only made sense to follow that up with a desi thanksgiving dinner. The first one that I hosted at my home.
A trio of chips and dips
- Chips: Tortilla chips, pita chips and crackers
- Dips: Salsa, baba ganoush and hummus
- Chicken tikka
- Tandoori paneer
Both were served with naan, raita and pineapple salsa
Roasted Indian-ish potatoes spiced with garam masala
Salad of romaine lettuce, baby spinach and arugula leaves.
Apple pie with vanilla and pistachio ice cream.
- Welcome drinks:
- Alcoholic: Pimm’s No. 1,
- Non-alcoholic: Ginger beer,
- Main drinks:
- Alcoholic: Beer,
- Non-alcoholic: Coca cola, Pakola
- Dessert drinks:
- Alcoholic: Hot toddy,
- Non-alcoholic: Tea or hot chocolate.
The few pictures that I took
I went overboard and printed both a food and drinks menu.
Pictures of the set up before guests arrived.
Yes, I converted my desk into a drinks bar.
The best part of the dinner in my opinion – dessert.
