Have a Party

I recently gave a party for my daughter's second birthday inviting 20 adults and 10 kids(who eat). Last year I got it catered thinking I couldn't cook for so many people. But this year I was ready to give it a shot. And it was not difficult. The party was on a Saturday and I started cooking on Wednesday - one vegetable a day. My dad is very good at proportions and he gave me the following proportions whatever menu you have:

For 10 people - you need
  • Flour for puri/Roti/naan - 500 gms
  • Rice - 300 gms
  • Yoghurt for Raita - 1 kg
  • Total Vegetables - 2 kg
