Here's the situation: 8 friends are coming over tonight for a feast of Indian food, but extra friends and significant others might make the party even bigger!
Our current menu is saag paneer, aloo gobi, chana masala, tons of rice with cinnamon sticks and cardamom pods, raita, and homemade naan. That's 3 stove burners taken (we're doing the rice in the oven because I don't have a fourth big pot!)
What's an extra-easy side dish -- preferably raw or salad-like -- I can add to the menu to make sure we all end up full? Thanks!
It's a world apart from the Norooz of my grandmother, but not when it comes to food
