Paneer tikka is a delicious appetizer, popular in the menu of most restaurants all over India. It is a great vegetarian alternative to its non vegetarian counterpart – chicken tikka! I love paneer and happily enjoy having it when ever we dine out! Besides I often cook with paneer on days when we just have veg. I love how paneer draws in flavors of anything you add to it, so one can add so many different and exciting flavors!
Croquettes and kebabs top my list when it comes to appetizers/finger foods. Like these mackerel croquettes which I happen to love a lot! Unfortunately we do no get good, fresh mackerels here unlike we do in Mumbai and Goa. So whenever I crave for these, I make do with the canned mackerels. So I always have a can or two in my pantry. I, sometimes also make these fish croquettes with fresh salmon/ tuna. Those are delicious as well.
As the temperatures drop, one really craves warm and comforting food! What better than a bowl of piping hot soup?? Nothing else shouts comfort than this age old remedy. Today I’m sharing one of my many favorite soup recipe- Hot and sour soup, which is yet another classic and much loved Indo- Chinese soup by one and all!
Today’s post is a guest post, by my dear friend and an amazing home chef, Ujjaini Majumdar. If you have been following my blog, then you have probably come across the name, as I’ve already tried some of her recipes and shared them with you’ll here. I figured it was about time I request her to do a guest post for me, to which she gladly obliged. I connected with Ujjaini through a foodie group on Facebook. Even though we haven’t met, we struck a chord through each other’s post and thus this beautiful friendship began. We chat so much, that I feel like I’ve already met her in person, which I hope I do someday 🙂 Continue reading →
Forminhas, a kind of an hors d’oeuvre is mostly served as an appetizer at most Goan weddings and other parties. It’s nothing but a canapé topped with some deliciousness. I had almost forgotten about this until I came across Nandini’s post few months ago as it’s been a while I last attended any wedding in Goa. During my visit to Mumbai, whilst having a casual conversation, rather more of a food discussion with my mum in law, I learnt that she’s made this several times for parties etc. It actually is a pretty simple, delicious and quick appetizer to assemble.
