    I have this friend who invites me yearly for her GFs potluck. She gathers all her friends for this. I’m the only Indian in the group. I used to take dessert but a couple of years back I took samosas and everyone went ga ga over it. I was wanting to take something similar again. What has worked for you all in a similar set up?
    I won’t make it, I’ll buy from an Indian restaurant nearby.

    I’ve never eaten it much. Isn’t the filling spicy?

    Nothing like samosas. Take them again. Become the "Samosa Lady". : )

    If the restaurant makes them big in size, you can cut each into two after heating and just before people start eating. Ask restaurant for extra chutneys.

    Whenever I, Dh or kid is the only Indian in a group, we take samosas. One time, in the potluck sheet, the description was put down as "deep fried Indian something." : )

    Westerners love gulab jamun. If its not a stretch, take gulab jamun along with samosas ( one spicy, one sweet )

    I'm craving for all of these things all at once now! It's raining and cold here and bajji/pakodas sound heavenly!

    Samosa Lady! I might also become the mimosa lady because the host just asked me to mix drinks since the lady who does that isn't attending! I'm googling various cocktail recipes with the ingredients she has provided right now:)

    That's a good idea - one sweet, one spicy. Had no idea about Gulab Jamuns. Thanks!

    Agree with the samosas, I can never resist one. Not sure if this is a vegetarian potluck, but people in our party loved the chicken fry served as appetizer, even though it was spicy.
    Gulab jamun is awesome, if you have a good place around kala jamun would be great.
    Rasamalai is also good, you can even get one of the nice frozen ones and transfer it to a bowl and take it.
    Another option is kulfi icecream, something most people may not have had, but would be a good one to introduce.
