Vegetarian Christmas Feast

I had the best Christmas dinner in 2010.  We decided to spend Christmas with Michael’s cousin Julie and her family in the Gold Coast. Julie and her family are vegetarians.  For Christmas dinner Julie cooked a feast for the clan and she decided on Indian for 2010.

With the exception of the naan bread and somasas, everything was made from scratch with mainly local organic produce. The Christmas menu was:

  • Kofta balls in creamy tomato gravy
  • Spinach and curd curry
  • Dry marsala potato curry
  • Dhal
  • Dry tempeh curry
  • Kachumbar (Southern Indian salad prepared with chat marsala)
  • Tamarind chutney
  • Cucumber raita
  • Basmati rice
  • Naan
  • Samosas

It was a feast to remember. Halva was also on the list but by the end of the meal nobody could eat another morsel of food.

Thank you Julie and David for a lovely Christmas dinner.
