This is just a suggestion if anyone needs an idea of when to prepare food for the Indian dishes I’ve suggested in the last few posts.
For a Saturday night feast I would suggested preparing the food like this:
Thursday night – Make Coconut and Cardamon Burfi
Thursday/Friday night - Remove fat and cut chicken and beef
Friday night - Make Pisata Kulfi – or at least reducing the milk and adding almonds then leave in fridge over night.
- Marinate Chicken Thigh
- Make Cucumber Mint Raita and leave in fridge overnight
Saturday morning - Put Kulfi in ice cream maker or freezer and stir every hour.
- Cook Papadams
Saturday midday - Start Beef Korma to slow cook
Saturday afternoon - Make Butter Chicken
Saturday night - Make naan bread
- Make rice (heat a little butter over medium/high heat and when melted and bubbling, add a tablespoon or so of cumin seeds. Stir for a minute or two. Add rice, salt then boiling water (for every cup of rice add 1.5 cups boiling water – 1 cup uncooked rice serves 2-4 people) Stir and once the water is bubbling, turn heat down to low and cook for 15-20 minutes until rice cooked.
- Cook Naan bread
- Serve papdams with Raita, then curries, rice and naan bread, followed by Kulfi, remove the Burfi from the fridge and serve after dessert.
- Enjoy! And Happy Eating!
