Dinner at The Curry Club

-posted by Jennifer G.-

The first Sunday of each month is our fixed-price vegan dinner at the Curry Club. It's $20 for all you care to eat, which you pay at the restaurant. This includes tax and a $2 tip. If you can afford to leave more for the tip, the restaurant workers appreciate it very much.

Menu (subject to change, but this is the plan...)

- appetizer: salad and papadums with chutney

- main dishes: tofu saag, yellow dal, mushroom mutter, vegetable jhalfrezi, aloo gobi, channa masala

- whole wheat roti, and NEW: brown rice!

- dessert: kheer* (rice pudding), and I will ask about fresh fruit or other dessert options.

*soy-free; made with almond milk

Beverages (wine, beer, juice, tea) will add to your cost. The restaurant normally charges $8 per glass of wine, but for us the cost is $5.


Will it be family style or buffet? Depends on how many RSVP. More than 40, and it may be buffet. 

Also: if the table configuration is conducive, we may do a "seat-swapping" partway through the evening. This is to shuffle the conversation groups, and allow you to visit with more people. Only half the seats at each table get swapped.

As with all VLI meetups, please follow VLI's policy that "the food is always vegan, and everyone is treated with kindness." (In other words, we expect everyone to order only vegan fare. Even if you or your guests don't think of yourselves as "vegan.")

And to help make our gatherings enjoyable for everyone, please read "To ensure harmonious meetups."

Finally, be mindful of VLI's RSVP/no show policy (here: www.meetup.com/Vegan-Long-Island/about/).

RSVP deadline: 6 PM the day before (Saturday). We need an accurate headcount. Thanks!

    Really a great assortment of dishes and tastes! The cold tabouli-type appetizer was a treat! What was the name of the smoky-eggplant dish? It was delicious on the roti: like a pizza. I really appreciated the increased vegetation and the reduced oil overall. Lovely dinner!
    And the games and ice breakers were fun. (I loved being Second To Naan!) Thank you, Jennifer, for all your efforts -- and for making another terrific event!
    Thanks, also, to everyone who came -- I had a great time with you all!

    For those of us who love Indian food, I just found out about an Indie (no pun intended) movie: <i>"Dosa Hunt"</i>

    NPR Interview <a href="http://soundcheck.wnyc.org/2012/nov/07/putting-indie-indian-cuisine/>here</a>;.

    Jennifer, next month can we try the vegetable uttapam? Thanks, and see you later!

    Sorry everyone -- I am hosting a Whale Watch Cruise Meetup out of Montauk tomorrow with CRESLI – this had been scheduled for last Sunday but due to dangerous high seas it was cancelled – it is NOW rescheduled for tomorrow.
    I am not sure if I would be back in time to attend the Curry Club event, which I so much enjoy (when it is relatively quiet – lol) – good food and good company always.
    You know -- getting back to the dock on time (supposed to be 3:30 PM) -- but who knows.
    So, I am dropping out -- if I get lucky I will call and see if there is room for me -- otherwise, I can't wait until next time.

    Menu sounds great! Any chance we could end up with some coconut brown rice in the mix? May just send me into orbit. :)
