Consider The Sauce never takes for granted the heart-and-soul situations that open up for us because we do what we do.

A year or so ago, for instance, I spent an entire day with our wonderful friend and fellow blogger the Urban Ma and her family, preparing and then eating a fabulous Pinoy feast.

This one is a bit like that …

I met Suneeti when she and some pals were guests at the CTS Feast held at Curry Leaves, the fabbo Sri Lankan eatery in Sunshine.

We sat at the same table, got talking and soon discovered that when it comes to sub-conintental eats – and what’s hot and what’s not so much in the western suburbs – we are very much on the same page.

All of which led to the question: Would Bennie and I like to be guests at her family’s regular Diwali bash in their Sunshine home?

We enjoyed meeting a varied bunch of lovely folks.

This was not you hardcore devout Hindu Diwali party – the assembled guests and family were from all over; there was meat and alcohol, though not a lot of either.

The food?

OMG – sensational!

Mildly spiced, as befits a gathering at which there are numerous young children, but still just so very fine.

Thanks, Suneeti!

And, yep, we’d really like to return next year!

This story and these photos are published with Suneeti’s happy approval – she was too busy to take pics so is looking forward to this post as a memento!
