Christmas is that time of the year when all we talk about is food. Be it cake, wine or a whole-fried chicken, our tables are always crammed up with mouth-watering dishes. For those who are still going through the grandma's cookbook trying to figure out what to make for the feast, we give you a list of six easy recipe combinations that you can manage at the final hour, yet amuse your guests.
Palappam and chicken stew
Being the ultimate “nasrani” breakfast combination in Kerala, palappam and chicken stew are the best breakfast to go for on a festive day. It is easy, light and delicious. It will leave enough room in your stomach for a few slices of cakes and brownies by noon.
It is barely noon but for once, you don't have to worry about grabbing some bytes before lunch. It's Christmas and you can have all you can eat today. Stop feeling guilty and go for this freshly baked chocolate-vanilla marble loaf cake.
Ghee rice and duck mappas
Having guests over for lunch? We suggest you to work on the side dish and go for an easy main course to make the best impression. An easy ghee rice and a yummy duck mappas would be the best combination to make the feast delectable as ever. Trust us, the coconut milk based duck curry is the one thing you cannot afford to miss on Christmas.
Lemon rice and Goan prawns curry
