This menu is a combination of some of my favourite dishes that I regularly cook for friends and family and these are some great dishes, fun to make and perfect for sharing! Then I say tuck in, get your hand’s messy and enjoy!
Mini Tostada’s are my version on a starter or canapes with a Mexican influence, creamy avocado, fresh tomato tangy salsa, sharp onion and crumbly feta.
Tandoori Chicken, is not tandoori chicken unless it’s homemade, it’s taste ten times better! Flavours are marinaded in the chicken and roasted to a crispy skinned, succulent main dish, complimented with dhal similar to how my mum makes it, truly delicious!
Finish off with a naughty but sweet, soft, medley of bananas and caramel banoffee pie Your guests will be wanting more!
Selina’s Dinner party menu – perfect for sharing!
Tostadas, Avocado, Salsa & Feta Cheese
Yellow Split Pea Dahl
Easy Banoffee Pie
If you’re wondering what a Tostada is, it’s simply mean’s ‘toasted’ in Spanish. They are layered or individual grilled or fried tortillas, which can be topped with a variety of ingredients. It doesn’t take that long to make , I’m counting about 15-20 minutes ! These are great snacks
This menu is all about sharing and what better than this dish to share between family or friends. Spicy, vibrant red chicken drumsticks and accompanied by a creamy yellow split pea dhal.
The dhal is spiced up with curry powder fried onions, tomatoes and some fresh herbs (just how my mum makes it!).
It was all served with homemade wholemeal chappatis, thin, warm and delicious with the dhal!
For the dessert this i an easy recipe and one of Selinas favourite. Gold old Nestle’s Carnation Milk is required to be used in this recipe, making the caramel with this is a joy to watch! You see the milk, sugar and butter turn into something creamy and mocha in colour..The smell is gorgeous! The chopped bananas are added to this mix and placed on top of the biscuit base and chilled in the fridge. To really impress I use Pecans to add to the biscuit base and to decorate on top!
