    On the Menu - Welcoming the New Year with tasty bites!!

    We have invited a few very close friends to join us in welcoming the New Year. On the menu, I have planned many delectable temptations. While shopping around the last weekend, we came accross a few party games that we thought were loads of fun. So we thought it'd be great for us all to come together over great food and some wicked laughter. Since we will be spending most of the evening sitting around the coffee table rolling dice, I wanted to have appertizers that were not just great finger-foods, but would also satisfy the hunger pangs till the late dinner. While I decided on going totally authentically Indian with the appertisers, I wanted a twist for dinner. And what better than having Indo-Chinese on the menu. I will serving many of the all-time favourites on this delicious scipy cuisine. So now that the menu has been planned, changed and planned anf finally finalized, I will be spending the next few days making batches of some of the food that I can freeze till the last moment. At the moment, I am working on the two deep-fried delicacies to be served at the bash - Potato Samosas and Vegetable Spring Rolls. These dishes are fun and great to make ahead of time. They can be stored easily and deep fried straight from the freezer! On my Party Menu: Appertizers: Chicken Seekh Kebabs Paneer Tikka Tandoori Grilled Vegetables Potato Samosas Dinner: Vegetable Spring Rolls Vegetable Fried Rice Egg Hakka Chow Mein Stir-fried Cabbage and Peppers Pepper Chicken Chilly Paneer Dessert: Chocolate-Walnut Brownie Mixed Fruit Tarts

    We'll all be licking our fingers clean!!

    This is so tempting menu meena. Would you get us a virtual treat of pictures and recipe details of all of them? My exposure to chinese and other fusion foods are quite limited, learning from here and there :-)
