Indian Party Finger Foods


The food you serve can make the difference between a good or not-so- good party, but it isn't always easy to come up with tasty snack ideas. We all have old favorites we end up doing over and over again.

Break from the usual and serve an array of sumptuous Indian snacks at your next get-together. Your guests will love the difference, be suitably impressed and chances are you won't need to cook dinner...they'll be too full from eating the yummy finger foods you made! Here's a list of easy-to-cook, easy-to-serve foods:

1. Kababs

Choose from a huge variety: Reshmi Kabab, Galouti Kabab, Bihari Kabab, Shami Kabab, Hara Bhara Kabab, Paneer Kabab.... Can't decide which one you like best? DO a mixed platter! Serve them with Mint-Coriander Chutney.

2. Prawns Rava Fry

Serve these delicious, golden, crispy fried prawns with Mint-Coriander Chutney or Pyaaz Ki Chutney.

3. Chicken Tikka

Tender chicken chunks marinated in special spices and then grilled on skewers. You can either make the Chicken Tikka on large skewers and remove the chunks on to a platter for guests to pick up with toothpicks or make mini individual skewers.

4. Steamed Momos

This appetizer from the east Indian state of Sikkim can be filled with any minced meat of your choice. Momos are usually served with a fiery Sikkimese Tomato Chutney.

5. Baida Roti

Roti (flatbread) is coated in egg and fried to make this tasty dish. Fill Baida Roti with anything you like! To serve cut a roll into bite-sized pieces, skewer each piece with a toothpick and serve with a chutney of your choice.

6. Samosa

This popular Indian snack consists of crispy pastry filled with meat or mixed vegetables. For your party, make mini Samosas and serve with Tamarind Chutney and a yogurt dipping sauce like Minty Yogurt Dip.

7. Bhajias

Also known as Pakoras, these are the perfect quick party snack. You can make them with any vegetable you like.

8. Bread Pakoda Sandwiches

A tiny sandwich that's also a Pakora! Serve with tangy Tamarind Chutney.

9. Sabudana Vada

This is a terrific snack to serve your vegetarian guests. The crunchy peanuts in these Vadas (cutlets) are a nice contrast to the soft sago and potato. Serve with Mint-Coriander Chutney.

10. Chip and Dip Indian Style

If you'd never thought of Chip and Dip as an Indian concept, think again! Here're some seriously yummy ideas.
