We had some guests last night for dinner; one of our family friend’s daughter is getting married. We celebrated her engagement earlier with Chaats.Now for the pre-wedding dinner (this is called ‘Kelvan’ in Marathi) I wanted to make something substantial yet different. Also there were two grandmothers coming, so I had to plan something accordingly.
This was the time I felt the need for a ‘Menu Planner’ website! You feed what you need;
Prewedding dinner+substantial+Something different+2 grandmothers and press Search!
And then automatically you get the planned Menu:
Veggie stuffed spinach parathas
Tricolored Penne pasta
Mushroom fried rice
Fruit Salad with Raspberyy Jelly and Custard
(Anytakers for such a website??)
Yes that’s the spread that I cooked finally. It’s really a spread since it spans cuisines from many countries! Indian to Italian to Chinese. As you can see I did not follow any theme! But they loved it!J
I will post the recipes one–by-one as and when I can.__________________________________________________________

(You have to excuse the poor photos. I had to click them before the guests arrived and after slogging in the kitchen for the whole evening I was too tired to take extra efforts!)
