It’s shaping up to be a pretty cold winter here in the Chantilly/Washington D.C. area. If you are hosting an event soon, whether it is a wedding, a corporate party, or a family get together, we’d love to warm up your guests with flavorful Indian and Pakistani catering!
When choosing a catering company in Chantilly, you need to choose someone who can meet the needs of your event. Sometimes this comes down to the number of people who will be attending your event or dietary restrictions of your guests.
Charcoal Chicken can accommodate catering for parties up to 1,000 people, so everyone can dine on a tasty meal at your event. We are also happy to be a 100 percent halal catering company and restaurant. This means that any guests who adhere to a halal diet can freely eat anything we bring. Finally, Indian and Pakistani foods are some of the most vegetarian-friendly cuisines in the world. We offer dishes that utilize farmer’s cheese, potatoes, garbanzo beans, and lentils in lieu of meat.
Indian Catering Crowd Pleasers
We are happy to answer any questions you have about our catering menu, but there are a few popular dishes that everybody loves. Choosing these will ensure even the pickiest eaters at your event leave feeling full and satisfied.
Chicken Tikka Kabab
Chicken tikka is a crowd favorite. Cooked over a hot grill, this dish features cubes of white meat chicken that are unbelievably tender with a slight char on the outside.
This classic curry is a favorite among those who regularly visit our Indian restaurant and is delicious over rice and naan. Our butter chicken is marinated overnight and oven-baked in a creamy tomato and fenugreek sauce. It is incredibly flavorful without being spicy and is a great option to have at your event if there will be kids. Butter chicken is the ultimate comfort food and is ideal for wintertime events.
Chicken Tikka Masala
Another staple in the world of curry is chicken tikka masala. The chicken for this dish is barbecued over a hot grill to add a beautifully deep flavor and slight char, then folded into a creamy tomato and onion sauce. A little spicier than butter chicken, this dish is still a favorite among those who claim to not love spicy foods.
If you need to cater to a vegetarian crowd, paneer karahi is a great option. Paneer is a type of cheese that is often used in Indian and Pakistani cooking. Because paneer doesn’t melt, it retains its shape and acts like a meat substitute as far as texture is concerned. Karahi is a fragrant Pakistani dish that is prepared in an onion and tomato-based gravy and topped with cilantro, sliced ginger, and jalapeño peppers.
Another good option for vegetarians, daal combines lentils cooked with onion, garlic, ginger, tomato, and spices and is cooked down into a thick sauce. Daal is almost like a lentil-based soup and is perfect for a cold winter event. Daal can be eaten alone or over rice and is a favorite for catering.
