A day without gorging on some snacks would be as dull as the proverbial ‘all work and no play’. Snacks must ideally be easy to make, so you can indulge in them when hunger strikes between meals but, hot snacks generally take some time to cook and when served as finger foods during parties or get together, you are sure to reap the compliments. Starters must be bite-sized and easy-to-serve, they are usually served at the beginning of a meal.
Punjabis don’t believe in staying hungry! Be it at the start of the day or any time in between, they keep themselves satiated. Not only do they focus on the three main meals of the day, but also on in-between snacks. You too will fall in love with peppy Punjabi treats like Paneer Amritsari, Tandoori Aloo, Samosa and Aloo Tikki's, which are enjoyed with a spread of chutneys and sauces.
Tandoori Punjabi Snack delicacies
Tandoor is a term used to refer a clay oven which can either be set into the earth or fired with wood or charcoal. It is a traditional aspect of Punjabi cuisine and used for baking or cooking flatbreads and a wide range of appetizers like tikkas, kebabs and tandoori delicacies. Chunks of paneer and vegetables marinated in thick curd, dry spices and other ingredients are skewered and cooked to perfection. These flavorful tikkas make a great party starter.
Kebabs can be deep fried, shallow fried or roasted in a tandoor. Vegetable Kebab, Hara Bhara Kebab and Rajma Kebab are some amazing options for cocktail party or tea-time snack. The myriad flavoured and textured starters take hardly any time to cook.
Indulge in these yummy and filling treats when you have a party at home!
