Menu Planning

A Birthday Menu

As stated is my post for Easter menu, where I have posted Menu I & II options, it is essential that any celebratory meal preparation would require some amount of planning ahead so that the day of the event becomes less stressful.  In my Easter Menu post I have given two menu options, one is North Indian fare and the second option is traditional food from Mais Recipes.

On my husband Rudy Pinto’s brithday on 6th November 2018, I had prepared the following menu which consisted of all traditional mangalorean food which he thoroughly relished and which without a doubt are his favorite dishes.

Any recipe that requires some form of marination can be made a day ahead.  Potato chops can be made ahead except for the final frying. Make sure you place butter paper/baking parchment in between the layers to prevent them sticking to each other. Alternatively, spread them out on a tray and place in the freezer to freeze individually, then place in polythelene bags or boxes.
