    If they are... world is your oyster... how about something like a thai curry made ahead as well, and then just rice boiled for when the guest are ready to eat..?
    Ooo Thai Curry you say? I'll have to go back and collect this recipe and consider making this.

    That's a good thai curry, yep. My suggestion is to make something like this ahead, with all but the prawns and then just simmer on a very low heat (eg in a crock pot). Stir in the raw prawns/shrimp about 10 mins before you want to eat, and then boil your rice (thai jasmine, naturally) for your guests.

    Serve with naan bread, as well. Oh, and fresh lime can be good. Hmm. Try some indonesian style crackers as a go-with - or some duck spring rolls and a hoisin sauce (all of these are just ready-to-go oven stuff).

    Dessert would be a nice sharp sorbet.. like a mango sorbet.

    I actually have a brilliant idea. I may (if they indeed like indian food) call ahead and pick it up!

    Indian food? Oh, I'm talking about Thai, but I suspect that would work well, too.

    If you do go indian (even if you buy it). Get in some poppadoms (big crispy things) and some decent mango chutney. Both as a starter, and then as a thing (the chutney) to stir into the curry. Trust me.

    Ok, unless our guests don't eat beef I am going to make this. It seems easy enough and after checking out the reviews of our local Indian restaurants I think we'll be much safer with food out of my kitchen. Now if I can just figure out where I can get some Nan bread.

    Thanks Geoff!

    The Naan bread isnt that essential. If not available just do a bit of extra rice and try and find some ready to bake in the oven indian snacks like samosa's or even something a bit chinese like spring rolls will go nicely as a starter in the same vein, even though from the wrong country.

    I've usually been able to find a few indian ingredients in North America - the Patak's pastes or something very similar are usually there in the larger grocery stores.

    Good luck and report back! If they don't like this, they will not be satisfied with any sort of curry. It is essential that you serve the mango chutney as a condiment, and encourage people to stir a tablespoon full into their meal as they eat it.
