Yesterday, my friends and I found ourselves engaging in the standard debate concerning which takeaway to order. Should we go for a creamy indian, a not so creamy chinese or dominos? This involved heated debates and many an impassioned speech using phrases such as “my reasons are threefold”. Until, in a similar vein to the revelations of Einstein or Edison, the idea that we could just order all the takeaways entered my brain and the grandest solution of them all presented itself to us! So I shall take you through the highlights!
Now I know what you are probably thinking (wow Sunny Kitty really cares a lot abound food ha) – no seriously, that must have been really expensive right? NO SUCH THING! I paid exactly the same amount I usually pay in our gatherings! So what did we get?
I would say this was the most central part of our meal. We ordered pilau rice, a vegetable korma, a chana massala and a peshwari nan (although whilst being delicious – this might possibly have reached the overindulgence stage). Anyhow, it was all great – particularly the korma!
Right we got satay sauce and spring rolls! Now we were torn for a long time over whether to get egg fried rice instead of pilau but in the end, we decided a more neutral rice flavour would be a better base for our meal. I cannot stress enough the importance of the satay sauce! Which brings me to…
In another moment of inspiration we decided to get some chips. And wow did it pay off! Because dipping chips in satay sauce is amazing! Like this was a highlight and I would just order those two things for a whole meal another time!
We ordered one large margherita pizza with onion and sweetcorn. Amazing and a highly necessary component to top off one hell of a feast!
- ketchup, mango chutney (dipping pizza in it is great), coca cola, wine!
RULE OF 3!
I strongly recommend only ordering a maximum of three items from each takeaway establishment. Obviously if there are 50 of you, then go crazy but for your average 2-6 people (wide margin of error for varied appetites) the rule of three ensures you don’t overdo one takeaway!
n.b. for the vegans: when ordering indian we got the dishes made with vegetable oil and with coconut milk instead of butter and cream. Chinese – same thing with the vegetable oil. Pizza – order the pizza without cheese (check dough is vegan) then sprinkle on some vegan mozzarella and pop in the oven for 5 minutes. Perfect!
And here we have it – a fantastic, multi-cuisine banquet. Follow this plan and you will not regret it!
Lots of love,
