As the contest rules do not demand own recipes, I am not giving them for each and every thing…
I wanted to see to it that the menu should have atleast a few items to each category of people in the party…bcoz in many families I have seen that elder people( like my mom) who are reluctant to even taste anything other than their own cuisine, they infact deem anything other than that equal to non-veg…
I may probably name it as KADAMBA MENU…bcoz it is a combo of many cuisines – right from our south Indian chettinadu, north Indian, continental and Chinese
Maybe I can explain one or two which might be unheard of…like Bhangra Pepsi…
And then regarding Shawarma, you must all have heard that it is quintessentially Arabic and hence non-vegetarian…but recently I found at one of the Chennai restaurants (called Veg Nation) that they serve the vegetarian version of it for the first time…I went and tasted it, it was awesome…no wonder youngsters go ga-ga over shawarmas…so I included it in my starters’ list.
All the other items in my menu are famous ones and hence no need for briefing, I guess
