Onam: Kerala Buffet for a Tenner

  • June 19, 2014 · 8:00 PM

Laurence has kindly arranged a delicious buffet of Keralan food at Onam for the bargain price of £10! See below for details.

Starter for all :-

Masala Dosa (V) – Crispy south Indian pancake with spicy potato filling


Then For Non Vegetarians :-

Chicken 65 – Chicken cube marinated in spicy hot batter & deep fried

Nadan Beef Fry – Tender beef stir fried with coconut & Kerala spices


Or For Vegetarians :-

Aubergine (V) – Stir fried with tomatoes, onions & spices

Vegetable Samosa (V) – Deep fried pastry stuffed with spiced vegetables


Accompaniments for all :-

Rice (V)

Garlic Paratha (V) – Indian Bread

Bhindi (V) – Okra stir fried with tomatoes, onions & spices

Saag Aloo (V) – Spinach & potato stir fried with spices

All Drinks at Additional Cost Paid Individually

Cost of Food £10 (TBC).

Maximum 22 Persons

When RSVPing Please State Clearly Vegetarian or Non Vegetarian Option

I will need to confirm definite numbers with the restaurant on the 17th of June.

I've asked the restaurant to serve this as a buffet because I want it to be an occasion to socialise with your fellow curry fans. We usually only talk to the people sitting next to us. I want this to be more like a party with lovely food.

Meet for a drink at 7.30pm in the Manor Pub (opposite the restaurant).

    I couldn't reserve a space in the Manor Pub because of the football match. They expect the pub will be full.

    Therefore because the weather is forecast to be dry on Thursday we can meet at 7.30 pm outside the front of the pub where there are tables and seating. The pub is on Tooting high Street opposite the restaurant.

  • Laurence

    No this is not a BYOB because the restaurant is discounting the cost of the meal by about 33%.

    June 18

  • Nicholas R.

    can we bring are own drink

    1 · June 18

  • Aminda B.

    1 · June 14

  • Laurence

    If anyone else would rather watch England play football than enjoy some Keralan food then please change your RSVP now.

    2 · June 14

  • Daksha M.

    so sorry Laurence just realised it clashes with the second England game - got to be home and watching I'm afraid. how daft am i to only just realise!!

    June 14

  • Laurence

    If you are in the "Going" list please check that you can come next Thursday. If you can't come please change your RSVP by Tuesday because that is when I have to confirm the numbers with the restaurant.

    The only way that I have negotiated a good discount (more than 25%) for this meal is by asking the restaurant to prepare a selected number of dishes for a know number of people. If you don't turn up for the meal then those that do turn up may have to pay more and you're only preventing someone else from coming to the meal.

    The vegetarians are currently Aminda, Andrew & Sara. Those arriving a little late will be Andrew, Katharine & Patricia.

    Those on the "Waiting List" will be assumed to be non vegetarians unless they indicate otherwise. I need this information in case you get promoted onto the "Going" list.

  • Daksha M.

    meat please but would prefer aubergine to beef

    1 · June 5

    • Elaine

      Same for me :-) thanks Lawrence.

      June 8

    • Daksha M.

      lawrence its cos i don't eat beef - if the same dish was with lamb/mutton it would be fine with me

      June 8

  • John

    Meat for me please but I'd also prefer the aubergine to the beef if possible. It's not a deal breaker though.

    1 · June 7

  • Laurence

    To keep the cost low I have chosen some of the best dishes off the full menu to create a "set menu" with a single starter and choice of vegetarian or non vegetarian main course. To make the occasion less formal I have asked the restaurant to serve the main course as a buffet so that those coming for the meal can more easily socialise and chat to each other.

    This is why I need to know which option you want beforehand.

    Because of the number working late I've put the meal back by 30 minutes to 8.00 pm. Starters will probably be served at approximately 8.15 pm.

    May 29

  • Laurence

    In response to a request from one of our vegetarians I may replace the prawn dish or add another dish for the vegetarian option. I will discuss the options with the restaurant owner.
