Christmas/Easter Party Menu

Lekha, one of my readers from Bahrain, mailed me sometime back with a suggestion….she wanted me to post a party menu. I liked the idea very much, but then I was not sure how to go about it. Different types of food are served at different parties right? As usual, my thought process was completely occupied with the party menu, but nothing worked out :(

Recently when I was thinking about the Xmas special post, Lekhas party menu said hi to me like a long lost friend :) Am glad that I met that friend at the right time ;) Thanks a ton dear Lekhas for that suggestion. I hope other readers will also find it useful.

Am presenting the Xmas menu to you, dear friends….just putting together some of the recipes that I’ve posted before. You can use it as a Xmas lunch or dinner menu.

Get set ready…

    • Hi Nimmu

      I will try to post the recipe for cake & wine, but not very sure about it. I always plan to post it, but didnt happen so far :(. Hopefully, this time I will be able to do that.

      Cheers

  • Hi Maria,

    i am Suja from Kochi. I am looking out for a dinner menu which can be given for christmas carol singers. Can u please give me some suggestions. The dinner menu should be preferably light

    • Hi Suja,

      I’ve posted a Christmas menu, sometime ago. Please have a look at it on the site.

      If you are looking for a light menu, may be you can go with appam with fishmolly/chicken stew, cutlet and some cake.

      Hope your menu comes out well :) All the best!

      Cheers
      Maria
