Dinner menu gastronomical delight

The spread for Obama and his wife Michelle was a mix of Indian vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare, as the US First Couple relished the food against the background of tunes of some popular English and Hindi songs played by the naval band. Around 170 American and Indian guests from diverse fields were present at the state dinner laid out on the sprawling lawns of Mughal Gardens at  Rashtrapati Bhavan. Some of the guests were from Obama’s entourage.

“Pista murg” and “sunehri kalia lamb’ were among the non-vegetarian items served while “palak papri chat,” “ bharwan parwal, “mahrani hara  pyaz” and “kyoti dal” kept the vegetarian guests happy.

The meal was not obviously complete without an assortment of Indian breads like “rotis” and “naan.’

The Obamas and the other guests were free to chose between “paper naan,” “paranthas” and “tawa rotis” as they were treated to traditional Indian culinary delights.
