I think I can say with confidence that our Indian feast was a success!
This morning we woke to a damp and dismal day. Not very Indian unless you are an Indian from Himachal Pradesh or Kashmir.
We started the heating, did the housework and set the table before sitting down to a late but healthy breakfast of oats, yoghurt, fruit and nuts.
Our 9 wonderful guests arrived just after noon. Their arrival sparked a chain of events which involved warming curries, cooking rices and baking breads. But before long we were all tucking into the various dishes with gusto. Most went back for seconds and were still able to put away a huge slice of coconut cream tart for dessert!
Some left after 4 hours, others after 6 hours and the die-hards after 9 hours!
