    Would like to make a decent Punjabi dinner for an Indian professor and his wife. As far as I know, they are non-veg.

    Any tips on what dishes I should practice before I invite them over?

    You should have gone for your Native CHinese Dishes. Being an Indian they would have had enough of Indian Food.

    Something like Chicken Hakka Noodles or Shezchwan or Chopsey or something..

    If it's not too late do practise on your lassi. It is a must for a good Punjabi Meal.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone, dinner is this weekend, will post photos.

    As for why we are doing this, the professor was the one who suggested it - he wants to bring a Chinese dish or two.

    The first thing is to ascertain if they are Punjabis or from some other part of India.

    For instance, if you serve Amritsari Fish to a person from the coastal area. that would be a mistake.

    The Coastal Area chaps would think that the funeral rites (Indian style - burning) of the fish has been performed!

    Notwithstanding, all the best for your meal preparation and wishing you and your guests bon appétit!

    That's a misperception. Ofcourse we love meat and combine it with a large variety of veggies but some veggies are served without meat because that is the beauity of it. Dumm ke alu (Bombay alu), sarson ka saag, cholai ka saag, phalli, bhindi, teenda, kaerela, arvi are usually cooked without meat.

    Btw, meat is a luxury for middle and upper class these days. The poor can only afford a chicken once in a while.

    Ideal would be a Tandoori chicken.= the all time favourite!

    And some hot buttered Naan!

    Unfortunately yes. We in the sub continent should give importance to cheap animal protein so that poor can take in every day diet.

    With chicken prices to sky rocketing, some other sources should be looked at which should be easy and cheap to rear.

    Emu and Japanese Quail rearing should be looked at.
