This is a grand menu in the fullest sense of the word. It is full of interesting flavors, textures and colors. Again, here is a nice variety of choices.
For starters, you can choose the Samosas, served hot, or the Indian Vegetable Dipping Sauce, served cold. A cucumber salad is a must and Cucumber Salad with Currants & Peanuts is very unusual. Choose two or three accompaniments to the chicken. They all work well together.
I would recommend that you prepare both chutneys. They keep well and are often served with numerous other roasts of meat or chicken. They are delicately seasoned and not hot or highly spiced.
The vegetable choices are interesting and great to use with other menus. Don't reserve them only for Indian dinners. They translate well with lamb, chicken or beef roasts. All the recipes can be made in advance and heated before serving.
Indian desserts often use bases of milk or cream. The Cheesecake is an excellent dessert, but if you are feeling a little more adventuresome, I would recommend you include both classics...Creamy Rice Pudding and Creme de Kashmir. The 2 fruit sauces can be interchanged. They are triumphant endings to a superb dinner.
