Excellent planning Bajaj Saab. Only thing missing is "sweaters on rent basis"

Menu looks fine but, two things you mentioned took me by surprise considering coming from such a foodie afficianado

Kindly replace Pepsi ( its sugar water) with Thumbs-Up

Kindly replace Chicken Biryani (It's not biryani) with Mutton Biryani

Kindly replace one NV snack item with Tandoori Chicken ( IMO, Appollo Fish can go out of the window...)

Finally, everyone please start your diet starting midnight tonight...LOL!!!

Note: Hurricanes, we can go together if you'd like as we stay close

That's totally acceptable. When Mutton Biryani is in the offing, who would look at the gravies

The minimum temperature which was 12 degrees a week back is now 22 degrees. Yes, everyone please keep yourself covered as we do not want anyone to fall sick.

Mrs. Vnabhi had told me that Chicken Biryani is good there hence opted for it. With very limited mutton pieces in biryani, most people will end up eating only rice. If we are still going for mutton, why not think keema biryani from "Blue"? Diesel9999 can help us out there.

TC of Deccan has an issue. They cut the whole chicken into 4 pieces. The ideal is that they should cut 12 to 16 pieces but they have refused to do so. Eating such big pieces will become a problem. Should we get TC from Pakwaan if he has small finger snack sized pieces?

wow, that's a great food menu. I am already on a diet.

For dessert, we can either go for sweets / ice-cream / cake. I am leaning towards sweets or cake.

Sure Mobike, we can go together. Mr.Bajaj gave me your number. I have PM'ed you my mine as well.

Ice Cream gets ruled out as it will melt before we are ready for the main course. Cake will need more plates, more spoons/forks, a knife so I will need to know in advance so that I can arrange the cutlery accordingly. Same issues if we go for rasgullas / gulab jamuns. The ideal is to have dry sweet like barfi. Alternatively, I will carry along 32 pieces home made chocolate (that is all that is left from the stock wifey made on diwali morning). Hopefully, everyone should get to lay their hands on one each. If someone can get a few meetha paans (sweet betel leaves), it will be great.

Bajaj Sa'ab--a small correction. Jeetaman is a vegetarian, like Sparsh. Only eats eggs and no other NV.

On the dessert part,why dont you order Kulfis from Punjab Sind-they are finger-lickingly good(priced at 25 iirc),or maybe order kulfis &/or falooda from the famous falooda guy at Karkhana which too should work out to be reasonable.Probably PS might have some kind of a small icebox to store the kulfis

CAUTION NOTE :
I have to place the food order in just a little while from now so please make sure that those names who are listed as confirmed below remain as such (else the others who attend will have to pay for the wasted food).

Attendee List :
AttendeeList.pdf

Four people have a question mark against their name. Please confirm ASAP.

Parking :
Niraj Public School Lane has ample parking apart from the apartment building itself.

With a food menu like that, I wouldn't even dare to miss this. I am coming for sure.

p.s: Chocolates would do just great for the dessert

Bajaj Saab, awesome planning and even more awesome execution

Unfortunately, I have a lunch session at a cousin's place today, will try hard to count my calories there

I should reach the venue around 9:00pm

See you all in the evening.....

I am a pure non-veg i.e. nothing less than 4 legged creatures will do (free range chicken being an occasional exception).

Between chicken and veg - I would prefer veg.

Cheers,

Hope I get to lay my hands on atleast 1 Vinita Ji's Home Made Chocolate. I am sure, by the time I come there, they would have vanished. Ek Mere Liye Please.

If someone is coming from Koti/Abids can get some good flavour paans. If someone is coming from that area, I will give the details.

Bajaj Saab, regret on behalf of Fleet Master, he might not be able to join the party today. I would be descending a bit late.
