Our Indian meal went very well last night. There was one small hiccup which I'll explain in the post. I wish I'd remembered to photograph the table but forgot in the rush of meeting and greeting.
Everyone arrived by 6.50pm and were seated by 7.00pm. Drinks were served (included in the price of £8 p.p.).
First were the potato and pea samosa's
Then the tandoori chicken in a cream sauce (sorry, forgot to photograph that but it was very nice despite the hiccup. Both were accompanied by banana in coconut, cucumber, tomato and onion sambal and home made Indian chutney, plus poppadoms.
Once the samosa's were served from my top oven (having been deep fried and kept warm in there), I had to turn the oven up to its highest setting ready for the chicken.
Unfortunately, the bottom oven was on warming up the main course and that was the one I turned up to 250 Celsius. After 10 minutes I could hear a noise but not smell chicken cooking so went to investigate. Yep, the chicken was in the 100 C oven and the warming up main course was boiling along in the hot bottom oven.
A quick swop ensued and we chatted for another 25 minutes whilst the chicken tandoori cooked.
The main course was chicken and mint
And black eyed peas with mushrooms.
Both were served with plain boiled rice and home made mini naan breads.
We finished off with a bought tarte au citroen and vanilla ice cream. T. had some of my home made chocolate vodka on her ice cream as due to medication, she's not allowed to drink.
We had hot drinks and retired to the front room, where much conversation and laughter ensued. Everyone left around 10.20pm.
