An Indian Food Feast

Way, way, way back in February I completed my 36 in 365 goal of making a five course meal for my husband. I've been meaning to blog about this for a while, but I didn't take many pictures and the ones I did take weren't very pretty. Oh well!

Now let's see if I can remember what we had! Our courses were:
1. Pakoras with mango chutney (chutney being the only non-homemade part of the meal)
2. Mixed vegetable salad
3. Dal with naan
4. Aloo Gobi (cauliflower/potatoes), rice, and raita (yogurt sauce)
5. Strawberry rhubarb pie. I couldn't think of an Indian style dessert, so sorry.
I went all out and served the food straight from the pots! Only the best for my husband! I tried to make some things beforehand, but in total I bet I spent a good 6-7 hours cooking this meal. And it was delicious, if I do say so myself!


  1. mmmm, reading this makes me want some of your pakoras. So delicious! I definitely loved this, a meal fit for a king!

  2. Only the best pots and pans for your hubby!! You do spoil him.... and you should!!! lol
    The food looks yummy..... I can wait for you to cook your parents a five course meal!!!

  3. I bet M was one happy boy! I think Indian food is at the top of his list of favorite foods!
