Sorry...i think many of the responders are crazy... we're talking groceries to on the table? There are a lot of suggestions here with alot of prep involved...be serious.

sfehmi Sfehmi

For starters - some pakoras with slice of cucumbers.
For main course - go with a dish of rice - Rice cooked with peas and two curry dishes which would be Malaee Kofta and nawratan korma ( all vegetable dish). Serve with Roti or Pratha.
For drinks go with Mango Lassi - if it is not mango season make lassi with seven up or sprite. Find some mix pickles from an Indian shop and serve these as side items.
For sweets stay with Kheer and top it off with some good Tea.

Your guests would love it.
This will be a total Shakahari dinner (no meat no liqour)
