Crowdsourcing What to Serve

In our informal dinner parties, I tend to whip up some dishes. But inevitably, I get asked why I didn't serve a dish I've blogged about. Of course, each person has their personal favorite, but I'd love to hear from you. Which of the following do you think I should make at my next dinner party? Click on the poll to the right - choose up to two dishes.

Here are the links to the dishes I'm referring to in the poll:
  • Uppumma: Made famous by our friend Chef Floyd Cardoz when he won the Top Chef Masters, this is my version of a South Indian favorite not usually available in any restaurants. 
  • Easy Peasy Garbanzo Curry: You'll see this described as Channa Masala in restaurant menus, and I've found that it's a staple in our home for those easy weekend dinners when you'd like to dawdle over the food and conversation.
  • Chicken Biriyani: An aromatic rice and chicken dish that can serve as an elegant centerpiece to a stylish meal or hardy complete meal for a family on the run.
  • Cutlets, Indian-style: Chicken or turkey patties, spiced just right. I'll make them the low-fat way.
  • Vegetable Korma: A savory medley of vegetables in a rich sauce, with a rather royal heritage since the dish was first served in royal dining rooms
Thanks for being part of my party planning, folks!

As far as I'm concerned, you can make everything. But I can make a chana masala if you'd like -- although it may taste Jewish, :)

Hmmm crowdmenusourcing

How but I get invited to one of your dinners? I'll bring something desi.
