Indian-themed New Year's Eve dinner

It has been a tradition for us to get together on a New Year's eve, and for the past 7 years I have been preparing dinner for the family and relatives. We have different themes every year. This year's theme was Indian/ Persian. It was something different for some but for me...it has always been one of my favorite cuisines.


Vegetable Samosas - this was bought from Assad Mini Mart in Bel-Air

Lamb Kofta- was served with Cucumber Raita

Cucumber Raita - accompaniment for the Kofta and Biryani

Indian Style Beef Kebab with Naan - ( Naan was store bought)

Cucumber Sambal accompaniment for the fish

Tali Machli with saffron Curry sauce

Chicken Biryani - Chicken Biryani should always be served on top of rice (see pic below). I just served it separately so guests can have a choice of what to mix with the rice.
