Authentic Taste of India Banquet | Event

You know me, if I get an invitation to try an Indian menu created by a renowned Indian Chef it is most unlikely that I would refuse, I love food and I love even more Indian foods.
The event was held at Jenius Social in London and organised by ASDA, which as you may know by now, I team up quite regularly with them. At my arrival I was delighted to find a room amazingly well decorated for the event with enough light up tea lights to satisfied any lifestyle bloggers out there and also with beautiful vibrant fabric, flowers and colourful Indian inspired ornaments all over the room, event before the dinner start I was already in India.


After few glass of non-alcoholic cocktails (as an expecting mother no prossecco for me that night unfortunately) chatting away and watching an Indian artist making hen tatto an my fellow bloggers hands we were all ready to sit down and taste an exciting Indian menu. Chef Rehan Ahmed introduced himself and each dish and we started the round of delicious dishes which were:
Keralan Prawn Curry, vegetable Bhalti, Lamb Bhuna & Chiken Tikka Masala all served with a variety of dips, Bombay potatoes and naan breads. To finish all we were served two desserts: Mango Lassi which is like a cool mango sorbet to cool our taste buds and Kheer which is a traditional rice pudding made from coconut milk & flavoured with cardamon, raisins, saffron, cashews & pistachio topped with a gold leaf. Let me tell you this dessert finish that meal beautifully and \i could have easily got for second.
My two favourites , excluding mouth watering desserts, were the Keralan Prawn curry, an Traditional South Indian dish made with Juicy king prawns smothered in a creamy sauce, made of cumin, coriander, creamy coconut milk, Indian mustard & curry leave. It was mild , succulent , tasty and so creamy.
My second favourite was the Lamb Bhuna, this delicious dish was brought to life with an infusion of selected herbs & spices, including cloves, fennel which give to this dish an authentic taste of Indian. This dish had a little bit more of a bite but the succulent lamb just was the perfect match to all the spices.







After a round of succulents dishes, were finally introduced to actually from were all those dishes come from, and they were to all our surprise form the new range of Asda's new authentic Indian Meals. Carefully selected and developed to incorporate the flavours & textures of quality Indian dishes and can simply be enjoyed at home. Not at any point during that evening I guessed where those dishes came from but I can ensure you that it was a lovely discovery.
