Celebrating the club's diverse range of cultures was on the menu at South Launceston Cricket Club on Thursday night.
Kausal Verkariya, Lijo Johny, Tajender Choudhary, Sohil Pathan, Ishang Shah, Hardwinder Bhangu, Amin Memdani and Luqman Kiani, who have represented the club's four male senior sides, turned into chefs with butter chicken, rice and naan bread drawing a record 55 mouths through the door.
Welcoming the majority of them to the Knights this season, president Jeremy Jackson said they have made the club a better place.

"We've got quite a few people actively involved in the club at the moment from a wide range of backgrounds and different places and cultures and that's something we want to celebrate at every opportunity," he said.
"Not only have all of these guys been a pleasure to be around since they've been at the club but I think they also give our young members an opportunity to learn a little bit more about the world and different cultures."
As well as featuring players from multiple nationalities, the Knights are also the home club to four Tasmanian inclusion cricketers.
Justin Nilon, Connor Sheppard, Hayden Cannon and Alex Cort all represented the state at the national carnival this year, while the former two have both donned the Australian green and gold.
"I think in community cricket, which is where we sit in the cricketing landscape, priority number one is to give everybody an opportunity to come and enjoy and play cricket in an inclusive environment," Jackson said.
"Everybody's got a job, study or got other stuff going on in their day-to-day lives and if we can be just that little outlet for people to come and enjoy each other's company or game of cricket, I think that's our primary role as a community club."
