Engagement Party

I went to my friend Upneet's engagement party on Saturday. She was going to get married to Dhawal later in the year, congratulations to them. The reception started off with finger food of chicken, fish and mushrooms and an open bar.

Above: There was a variety of cocktails and I tried the a few of them and they were very nice.

Entrees consisted of two options, something for the carnivores and something for the sheep, um I mean the vegetarians. There was only one vegetarian on our table so the rest of us helped him eat the vegetarian food because we were all pretty hungry. The vegetarian entrees were Hara Bhara Kebab, Paneer Tikka and Alool Bharvan while the meat entrees were Fish Amritsari, Chicken Tikka and Seekh Kebab.

Dinner was lots of different curries and vegetable dishes. Dinner consisted of Chicken Nilgiri, Lamb Kesari, Prawn Chilli Fry, Palek Paneer, Daal and Bhindi Masala with side dishes of Naan, Rice and Garden Salad. The Naan was very popular and our table finished ours very quickly and get a second serving.

Above: From the Naan going clockwise, Palek Paneer (I asked someone on the table and they said it was Spinach), Bhindi Masala (Lady Fingers cooked and were suprisingly delicious, I generally don't like vegetables), Chicken Nilgiri, Lamb Kesari, Daal and Prawn Chilli Fry in the centre.

To help wash all the food down, I had the Rosemount Estate 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon. It was very smooth and went down well with the food.

To finish off the meal, dessert was Cassata (I thought that was Italian) and chocolate cake. The Cassata was nice but the cake was extremely dry and lacked any flavour. All in all though, it was a great night of entertainment (lots of Indian dancing, see More Thanh Words for details about the dancing) and great food. Thanks to Upneet for inviting me and here's wishing her a happy wedding.
