Plan your Party Professionally

Planning an Event?

If you are planning an elaborate spread, deciding snacks to be served is the first step in the direction. Make a proper list so you do not forget about anything that needs to be done.

Scrumptious Snacks


If it is an adults’ birthday party, you can serve mini samosa or mixed veg pakoras, spring rolls, veg or non-veg kebabs with green chutney or tamarind chutney. Another option is pani-puri without pani and filled with chickpeas, sprouts, yoghurt, chutneys, and finely chopped coriander leaves sprinkled along with sev. Non-vegetarians can be served with bhuna chicken, chilli chicken, mutton kebabs and more. 

When planning a kids’ birthday party, think about fruit and cheese kebabs, watercress sandwiches on sticks, pesto pinwheels and more. 

Mouth-Watering Main Course

When planning a lunch or dinner birthday party menu for adult guests, you can go with traditional Indian cuisines or try your hand at continental cuisines and keep everyone happy. In Indian dishes, you can go for any paneer dish like kadhai paneer, paneer lababdar, paneer butter masala, palak paneer, mushroom paneer with dal tadka or makhni, a mixed vegetable, vegetable raita, and slices of bread. You can add one or two international cuisines like lasagna, baked vegetables, etc., to the menu. Similarly, non-vegetarians would like to enjoy delicacies like chicken butter masala, chicken bhuna, chilli chicken with gravy, Mutton Rogan josh and more with pulao or jeera rice and slices of bread. Serve salads with amazing dressings and accompaniments like chutneys and dips. 

For kids’ birthday parties, serve foods that they love. Serve pizza, burgers, cheesy quesadillas, crispy bars, pepperoni roll-ups and more. You can make these foods more delightful and nutritious by adding a lot of vegetables and fruits to it. Kids love colourful food served o them. So, think creative and serve vibrantly-coloured food items. 

Delectable Desserts

Once the main course is over, you are now ready to serve guests with a delectable spread of desserts. If you wish to keep things simple and traditional, you can serve gulab jamun, shahi tukra, rasgulla, saffron kheer, fruit cream, moong daal halwa and more. You can experiment a little and go for a chocolate dessert, crunchy wafers and fresh fruit trifle, sweet jalebi, badusha, Puran puffs and more.

Kids, on the other hand, love to sink their teeth into soft, creamy ice creams, lollies, cakes, pastries, truffles, eclairs and more. 

All through the food, you can serve a variety of drinks to your guests. Depending on the season and time of the party, you can serve Aam Panna, kokum sharbat, jaljeera, lassi, thandai, fresh juices, mocktails and more. 

Plan your menu in advance and try to add a couple of new dishes to pique the interest of guests and let them enjoy your superior culinary skills!
