Entertain over summer lunch with Miss India Greenslopes

Brisbane is all about entertaining friends and family under the big shade umbrella with delicious and exotic cuisine.

We’ve always wanted to throw a Bollywood party with amazing hot pink and silver fabrics draped from the pergola, fairy lights in the trees, and of course, incredible and authentic food – so that’s exactly what we did.

Miss India in Greenslopes has a great range of quick and delicious dishes (dine in or takeaway) with incredible aromas and spice blends that are perfect for a summer party.

We ordered the vibrant mild butter chicken with cream and tomato and teamed it with a delicious cheese naan Indian bread made fresh to order in their tandoori oven. This dish was a huge hit with our gluten free mates (and non-gf too!). It was super affordable and ready for us so fast – which everyone knows is super important when you have a party to set up for.

For the vegetarian guests we served Miss India’s sweet vegetable korma with fresh mixed vegetables in a sweet creamy cashew nut based curry.

The special naan topped it off with herbs, potato, olives, mushrooms, and of course, gooey and hot melted cheese.

We were delighted to take recommendations from the friendly staff at Miss India Greenslopes and took home a tray of pappadam dipped in mango chutney for a crunchy snack at the party.

Other huge hits were the samosa and raita for a side and delicious sticky Gulam Jamun for dessert. We added vanilla bean icecream to these ultra moreish soft donut balls.

We set up a bar area with yoghurt & pureed mango drinks, lassi, for the kids (and adults!) to help themselves.

It felt great knowing they sourced their ingredients from local suppliers and made everything fresh in-house and without MSG or added preservatives.

The takeaway from Miss India Greenslopes was so delicious we know we’ll be back for their Holy Cow specials to feast on more of the curry, samosa and pappadum or the Delhi Double when we’re really craving a couple of curries.

Anyone who’s keen to dine in can enjoy the back deck overlooking palm trees and capturing beautiful summer breezes with a bottle of their own wine (yep it’s really BYO!).
