This is a very easy snack and my family’s favourite. I had crackers with me but toasted bread also works well. I made the creamy white layer by beating hung curd with a whisk and added salt and white pepper powder. I chopped an onion, a tomato and coriander leaves for the topping. I had two types of caviar : red and black. I layered the crackers with hung curd, topped it with caviar and chopped veggies. It tastes heavenly.
In these rationing and trying days, my pantry gives me the pleasure of my lifetime. I found some crabmeat in my freezer and I had fresh bread with me.
And here was the heavenly combination that I made earlier and had made wraps and canapes also. Actually speaking, this is just a filling or can work as a dip with nachos or fries.
Makes 10 sandwiches
1/2 a cup of crabmeat
2 tbsps of mayonnaise
2 tbsps of cream cheese
Few sprigs of herb of your choice. I used finely chopped coriander leaves.
1/2 of an onion finely chopped
1/4 of a tomato (seeds removed) finely chopped
1/2 if a spring onion green chopped
1 tsp each of mustard sauce, tomato sauce, any hot sauce
A squirt of wasabi paste (optional)
1/4 tsp of black pepper powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp of olive oil.
Combine all the ingredients except onion, tomatoes, spring onion green and olive oil.
Mix it well and keep it aside.
Take olive oil in a small shallow pan and once hot, add onion and fry till translucent. Then add tomatoes and saute. Now add spring onion greens and turn off the flame.
Add this to the mixture in the bowl. Mix well and store it in a box. Use it when required. Spread it on a slice of bread and cover it with another slice.
Or let a dollop of it sit on a cracker or canape. This looks very decorative as a snack on a platter.
Or spread it on a tortilla and make a wrap. Let your imagination run wild.
This recipe is one of my favourites and that’s probably because of its taste and versatility. You can feed an army of people within budget and most importantly multiple dishes can be made with the leftovers (if any).
A Malaysian street food and to me an ideal finger food. Its usually served with peanut dip but you can serve with any dip of your choice.
A very versatile dish, it can be served as a snack and finger food at parties (with toothpicks) or it can be made with a gravy to accompany simple steamed rice. The combination of sweet, salty and hot makes this dish ideal for parties.

Green peas are in The prime of their season and what better way to incorporate their nutritious goodness other than this thick delicious soup. The slight hint of mint gives it it’s absolutely unique flavour.
A hot favourite for hungry teenagers, lip smacking good.
Winter is coming! In some cases, it’s already come. There is nothing more comforting in winter than a bowl of hot soup while looking out of the window.
An ideal evening snack and an appetizer for a party, it can be made and kept in the fridge. Just fry and serve.
A starter to liven up your table during parties. A very quick and easy recipe, can be stir fried in minutes, even when your guests are sitting to eat!
