Last night I tried Samosas for the first time, and they were amazing! I am thinking that they will be the 'main' course as I can make them in very large quantities without too much hassle and they don't require a ton of expensive ingredients. I do need help figuring my side dishes and accompaniments. There will be a total of 11 people that I am going to be cooking for, so I am looking for either recipes that can be prepared in advance, are not very time consuming, or are completely worth their time =) Chutney recipes and other dips for the Samosas would be great as well.
Obviously I am looking to do Indian style dishes. Any recipes are appreciated, but if you happen to have any that would be particularly kid friendly that would be great. Of the 11 people, 6 of them are under the age of 13. Also, please no tofu or seitan dishes. Because everyone I am cooking for is a carnivore, I would like to avoid meat replacements and focus on veggies and grains.
I have a while to compile recipes, but would love to get some ideas beforehand so I can start to plan the meal =)
