Marketplace menu to reflect Indian festival of lights

The Marketplace food court in the CAW Student Centre will spice things up Wednesday, October 22, serving Indian-flavoured dishes in celebration of Diwali.

The menu features thali, sampler platters with diner’s choice of:

  • baked samosa with mango chutney;
  • butter chicken;
  • curry beef; or
  • mutter paneer;

served with naan bread, basmati rice, chana masala and aloo gobi.

In addition to its religious significance for Hindus, Sikhs and Jains, Diwali is considered a harvest festival. It’s a good time to try something different, says Paolo Vasapolli, executive chef in Food Services.
