This is one my mom used to make when we were kids. It was always the biggest hit every year. Use your imagination and a variety of sweets to make doors, windows, pathways and a garden. Note, this gingerbread house takes 2 to 3 days to complete.
Great biscuits for a children's party, they can decorate them with all kinds of candy! It also makes a great family activity for Christmas holidays.

Nargisi kofta is boiled eggs stuffed inside a shell of kheema. This dish is a little time consuming, but makes a fantastic party dish. Your guests will be impressed.
Kori Rotti is a Mangalorean speciality. Kori means chicken, and rottis, in this case, are not the traditional chapattis or rotis. They are a special kind of bread, which are made of rice paste and then dried, so quite hard and crispy and are made into sheets that are then broken into pieces. These rottis, when soaked by the chicken curry, absorb it and turn quite soft. A real taste and texture sensation!
Potato Rose Chips.

This is one of my most favorite gourmet recipes and the reason I like it so much is because it not only tastes great, but looks beautiful too and above all it is simple and easy to make. I usually make it when I want to make a great impression on a new acquaintance. It is called pink chicken because the kashmiri mirch masala in combination with the yogurt gives the chicken a pinkish hue.
