The menu for this party only sounds exotic, but is actually very easy. Many of the recipes are perfect to make ahead. Remember to always take some help from the store or your favorite take-out restaurant. You can usually find naan bread and other Indian staples at the grocery store. If you don't want to make dessert, select a store bought option and add spices. For example, by adding a hint of cardamom, you'll completely transform store bought rice pudding into one with authentic Indian flavor.
Your Indian inspired menu needs to be really flavorful to compliment the colorful decorations, exotic tattoos, and vibrant music. Try our menu for just the right combinations of spicy foods and cool drinks to get the party really started. <p><b>Menu:</b> Bollywood Menu</p>
