Vegan Dinner at Mirch Masala 1

This event is now full. If you would like to join the waiting list send me an mail.

Please include your phone number so I can contact you quickly if there's a cancellation. Signing up for the waiting list does not commit you to going if space becomes available. There is no fee involved in joining the waiting list.

If you are interested in this event it's important to add your name to the waiting list even if you think it's unlikely you'll be contacted to go:
1) There could be last-minute cancellations and the people ahead of you on the list might not be able to go -- or I might not be able to get ahold of them.
2) It gives me a better indication of the interest level, which can help in planning future events.

Mirch Masala is an Indian & Nepali restaurant on the Capitol Square (formerly known as Flavor of India).

There is a duplicate dinner on Monday, January 14.

Our completely-vegan menu will be served buffet style and includes the following:

Starters
Vegetable Pakora
Mixed vegetables fried in chick pea batter. (gluten free)

Samosa
Spicy turnovers stuffed with potatoes and green peas.

Aloo Tikki
Chopped potatoes, green peas, gram flour balls deep fried. (gluten free)

Papadum
Crispy, spicy wafers. (gluten free)

Entrees
Tofu Buff
Sauteed tofu and fresh vegetables spiced with garlic, ginger, and soy sauce.

Vegetable Mango
Variety of vegetables including green peas, potatoes, cauliflower cooked with mango sauce. (gluten free)

Aloo Gobhi
Cauliflower and potatoes cooked with tomatoes and spices. (gluten free)

Chana Masala
Chickpeas cooked with green vegetables, onions, and peppers. (gluten free)

Dessert
Fruit salad

Beverages
Water is included. (Wine, beer, and soda will be available for an extra charge.)

The $15.00 fee includes the tax, tip, and everything mentioned above (except the noted beverages). That breaks down to about $11.00 for the meal, plus tax, tip, and a little to cover the meetup.com and PayPal fees.

RSVP/Payment Info:
Pre-payment is required to RSVP (see exception below). Meetup.com automates this process when you pay via PayPal. If you want to pay by check, contact me and I will give you my mailing address. I will manually update your RSVP as soon as I receive your request, but since our events fill up quickly, out of fairness to other group members I will remove the RSVP if the check is not received within four business days.

Special honor system exception: If you have been in the group for a while and have a history of attending and paying for events without any problems you can contact me about paying me at the event. This accommodation is provided as a convenience -- you are still responsible for paying even if you do not attend

Important Note: I will manually update the RSVPs of people who pay by check or use the honor system, but it's possible the event will fill up before I check my email. If that happens I will add you to the waiting list.

Fee Disclosure:
The $15.00 fee includes a little extra to cover PayPal's fees (74 cents) as well as Meetup.com's $144 annual cost.

Refund Policy:
If you cancel on or before Friday, January 11th you will get a full refund. There are no refunds for cancellations after the deadline or if you do not show up to the event. If something comes up at the last minute you are welcome to find someone else to attend instead of you. The reason refunds are not given after the deadline is that I agree to pay for everyone who has paid me at that point.

What about kids?
Kids 8 and under pay $7.50. Young children who will only nibble off of your plate can attend at no charge. Please note in the comment section of your RSVP if kids will be joining you.

This is a vegetarian group. Why is the dinner vegan?
This group has members who are vegetarian, vegan, and just interested. Everyone is welcome. I think it's important for our events to have a menu that not only has something for everyone, but where everyone can eat everything.

    The food was fresh and delicious. I especially liked the tofu dish, the channa dal, and the little appetizers. The variety of food was impressive and the staff was attentive. I really felt treated.

    Great dinner. The fritters and samosa were tasty but they completely won me over with the sautéed broccoli. Love these meet ups because you get to sample lots compared to selecting one entree. Bravo again Dave!!

    I liked every single thing except one cold thing that I expected to be hot that was very salty.

    Hi! I was wondering if there was one entree or dish that was onion and garlic free (or could be made so)- at least for a single portion?

      I checked with the restaurant and there are no items on our menu that are free of onion and garlic. And while this group is clearly sympathetic to special diets, with the large size of our group and the number of attendees at each event it's not feasible for restaurants to prepare alternative items at our dinners. They are able to offer a low price to our group members because they are making everyone's food at once. I'm sorry this won't work out for you and I hope you understand.
