This year, for the Christmas meal that we get to host with my family, Josh and I decided to go off from the usual traditions and do an Indian themed meal. Between Josh’s dairy allergy and a vegetarian in our midst, we thought this would be a great way to get a variety of dishes to please everyone.
Bonus for me: most of these will only be better by cooking them the day before. Can’t argue with that.
Our drink of choice for the evening isn’t Indian at all, but it is festive. That’s totally fine, right?
Indian Christmas Menu:
- Mango & Mint Chutney
- Lemon Pickle
- Coconut & Tumeric rice (just the initial rice, not fried)
- Spinach Saag (with coconut milk instead of dairy)
- Curried Squash soup
- Tandoori Marinated Lamb
- Cranberry rosemary spritzers
Anyone else breaking from tradition this year? Anyone have any traditions that they would never ever break?
