Great Indian Food, Just a Click Away

 Maya  and I shopped at Bangalore‘s ITC Outlet MG Rd., planning this SURPRISE  & COMFORT FOOD PARTY  for our neighbours The Kumars : Saturday night. I hope this works. They lost their little ‘ cart’  restaurant  to a large Mall : this is our gesture to make them want to start over.  So:

We got a Mini van, the one Maya’s uncle does not use now( used to be a mobile library). No, we cannot cook as well as our neighbours, nor have the time but there’s our Secret , a well Preserved  secret –  easy to do in minutes, and  taste like Palace fare :

Cuisine in Indian household

Cuisine in Indian household

 Kitchens of India  – ready to cook and serve- master chef’s pick !  +Dal-bukhara /rice-dosa/navratan-korma ( getting spoilt for choice at  this Aashirwaad link)


 ( Plenty na ? But how else to impress the Kumars into business ? Maybe small servings of each, is what we can handle: )

 Chettinad, South Indian)    + Dal-bukhara /rice-dosa/navratan-korma*

ChickenChet ( south Indian fare ribbed – curry leaf garnish)

Mirch-nawab   ( red gravy and traditional cuisine)

Methi Chicken   ( dry or sauced  ). 

Paneer-darbari ( cottage cheese in delish tomatoes)

Cottage fresh – makhani(with Naan/Indian Breads)


Mutton-kolhapuri-spiced ! ( love with Rice, plain/ & Curd)

Sauces of India & Dessert !

Gourmet Gifts - Halwas 2 Pack

Gourmet Gifts – Halwas 2 Pack


With accessories : Raitha, Salads, Rices, cold veg/ non veg salads  Indian breads,Chaats…  Pav Bhaji

One could make this also a whole Table spread Gourmet style, and it would taste as tantalising. The curries turn out authentic ‘ Dum”, Dharbari, Dakshin and Delicious. Flirting with senses, literally, turning nervous cooks like me into Sassy Chefs in minutes.

(If my friend sings ” KOI mil gaya..” one more time, I’ll thunk her with her apron 🙂  but she’s sweet, my friend Maya with the uncle who lent us his van. Am hoping this will be a good surprise dinner and inspire our neighbours  to think ” Palace”  even if it’s on uncle’s  wheels for starters).

I do have another ‘ day’ coming up for a mixed marriage event, but the very SAME MENU AS HERE- and I thought this was just about writing a Post (happy sigh, you’d think I was this great Gourmet cook, na ? But KOI is fun, and I get away with a nice change from 9-5 -9 living !) Our Great Big Indian Kitchens sure turn out to be Chef of Hearts : click on ‘Chef ‘here for typical Gourmet mixed marriage hungamma 🙂

Thank you Kitchens of India for being there. Yeah you’re good to Paupers and Kings  !

Mango Saffron Preserve : it lingers

( Love KOI’s   Gifts,“ and  Offers. ” Mango Chutney” is going to be their Fav ! They are Chutney/Pickle people, our Kumars.  If this evening goes well, maybe  they will think of a Chef of Hearts  event  later.

Hey, writing a Post  for KOI turns into something like this ?  Recipes for Life; thank you  Kitchens of India  host   “CHEF … ” ( read on ..)
