Written for Kitchens of India contest from Indiblogger.in
If i have to host a party, i would prefer it to be in my home. First i would see that my home is clean, i would decorate it with few scented candles (of course, not reachable to children :)) and flower vases. I will select to play a pleasant music in the background, say some instrumental by AR rehman/ Illayaraja.
I would like to invite our family friends and my bestest friends with whom I can share and remember beautiful memories of childhood days and chat for long time.
Now, coming to food, i go for traditional Andhra food which includes a sweet (payasam with semiya), mango pickle, Veg biryani, Mirchi ka salan, Onion raitha with grated carrot and tomato, Tomato dal, A variety of brinjal curry (Gutti vankaya), Lady fingers fry, Sambar/ rasam and curd. A simple delicious dessert would be Gulab jamun with Vanilla ice cream. Ok, menu seems great na.. :) But, iam not a very good cook, so might be difficult without the help of these products from Kitchens of India.
For mirchi ka salan, this instant is fantastic. Just heat and serve :) There is another simple product 'Vegatable biryani mix' for just Rs.40/-. I prepare biryani in traditional style, frying all spices with Vegatables, Pudina and Ginger garlic paste and cooking with rice, but adding 2 spoons of this mix will give the required flavor that it needs :) When it comes to Non-veg section, iam very poor in cooking, so, would love to try butter chicken mix.
So, my party would be simple with easy to cook and tasty dishes. What do you say ?
Until next time,
