What a nice time we all had at the Indian Feast co-sponsored by Hyderabad Inn and Consider The Sauce.
So first thanks go to chef Nagesh and his staff for so generously providing us with such a fine meal.
My own favourites were a spicy, creamy tomato soup with a garlic and ginger kick, and – somewhat surprisingly – the homely delights of a fabulous peas pulao and simple dal.
Mind you, we all loved the gulab jamun with insanely good pistachio ice cream as well!
Thanks, too, to CTS readers Russell, Loren and Brenton, Kat and Natasha, Ms Baklover of Footscray Food Blog fame and Bianca, Alastair and Michelle, and Kelly and Alison for attending.
So much fun to converse with so many westies with so many mutual and overlapping interests, pertaining to foodiness and much else besides.
Bennie surprised and delighted all – including his dad – by firing off really good pen-and-paper caricatures of everyone present.
I knew my boy had some drawing skill, but this was something else.
Where did that come from?
The evening’s consisted of the following:
Cream of tomato soup
Chicken tikka spring roll dosa
Paripu (South Indian & Srilankian style dal)
Vegetable Taka Tak
Chicken Do Payaaza
Amritsari Kulcha (most famous in Punjab & nobody serve in Melbourne)
Gulab Jamun with Ice cream
This gathering was a joint initiative of Hyderabad Inn and Consider The Sauce, the former of which devised the evening’s menu. Our guests did not pay for their meals.
