So this is how it works. You invite a few friends. Open some nice wine. And make them get a dish each! Isn’t that the coolest idea? That way, you spend less time in front of the stove, and more time with the friends 🙂
Apparently, it’s called potluck and I chanced upon it on someone else’s blog and decided to use the idea to my advantage. Besides, there were 3 nice bottles of Himalayan wine, waiting to be opened.
So this is what I managed to get my guests to bring for the potluck:
A totally yummy vegetable and fusili bake from Zoo:
Kachoris and icecream from G:
Tasty chiken and veg momos from Apra:
Aloo Parathas that I cooked (with loads of help from Aqua and G! : it’s been about 3 years since I last cooked an aloo paratha!!)
Chicken wings, slightly overdone, but chicken is chicken!:
And loads of great plum, pear and apple wine!
And though no pics, there were also delicious chili potatoes from Aqua & P, red wine from Shibs and vodka from Venx.
So if you’re running out of ideas for an evening, invite friends and say it’s a potluck, sit back in your cosy chair and relax/watch television!
The only hard thing is cleaning up and fitting all the leftovers in the fridge. But on the bright side, I had enough to eat for about 3-4 days without having to step into the kitchen!
