Fall Dinner Menu




Salma: Afghani Vegetable Soup

This Afghan-style vegetable soup features a combination of various seasonal vegetables and spices creating a warm, light and nourishing beginning to your meal. 

Jayashree: Sweet Corn Chaat

Corn chaat is a delicious snack very popular in the Eastern part of India where Jayashree is from. Made with boiled corn, chaat masala spice powder, chopped onion, tomatoes, cucumber and lemon. It is fresh, crunchy, sweet, sour, and spicy all at the same time. It’s addictive.

Main: Vegetarian

Kalyani: Palak (Spinach) & Mushroom Paneer

Palak and Mushroom Paneer is a delicious Indian dish that combines the goodness of spinach, mushrooms, and paneer (a type of pressed cottage cheese) simmered in a rich, creamy and flavourful sauce made with freshly ground spices.

Main: Meat

Ope: Nigerian Roasted Chicken with Pepper Sauce

During the festive season, my mum always goes out of her way to make the chicken with charcoal or firewood. The blend of the smoke from the fire and the chicken sauce dripping on the wood enhances the aroma. You can never have enough of it. It is marinated in a paste made of a unique blend of spices, ginger, scotch bonnet and more to give it a distinct and delicious flavor.

Side Dishes for both Mains

Florence: Matooke (Mashed Cooked Green Banana)

Matooke is a staple food in Uganda. In East and Central African cuisines, Matooke holds a special place, and its versatile nature makes it a fundamental ingredient in many traditional recipes. It cooks up like golden flavourful mashed potatoes. It’s loved for its ability to absorb flavours and complement a wide range of dishes, making it a beloved and iconic component of the regional culinary landscape. As a complex starch it is full of fibre, nutrition and stables blood sugar levels.

A side of fluffy white Basmati rice is served along with the Matooke


Pragati: Aamrakhand (Mango and Yogurt Pudding)

Aamrakhand is a popular Indian dessert that originates from the western state of Maharashtra but is enjoyed across the country. It is a delightful and creamy sweet dish that combines two main ingredients: “aam,” which means mango in Hindi, and “shrikhand,” a sweet and thick yogurt-based dessert. Subtle notes of cardamon and cinnamon round out this refreshing dessert.
