Happy Easter

I used to love festivals back home as it meant having friends and relatives, wearing new clothes, eating good food and watching tv the whole day. Now that both my brother and I are miles away from home, my parents hardly celebrate it the way they used to. So I decided to carry on the tradition and invited friends over for dinner yesterday.

The menu was vegetable biriyani, mutton biriyani, tandoori chicken, gobi 65, carrot-mint raitha and boiled egg. One of my friends made delicious vegetable kababs and another one got a yummy mocha cream cake. I got banana leaves from a korean store last week so served everything on plates covered with banana leaves just like the way back home.

I am posting a few pictures from yesterday and will try to post recipes one by one as soon as possible.

Clockwise from top: Carrot-Mint raitha, Gobi 65, Tandoori chicken, Mutton biriyani, Kathirikai (Eggplant/Brinjal) chutney, Pickle and Vegetable biriyani in the centre.

Thanks Asha.

The Vaazha elai is from a korean store. They even had vazhai poo and a lot of other indian veggies.
