Starters / Snacks recipes
A day without snacks or a meal without starters would be as dull as the proverbial ‘all work and no play’! Snacks must ideally be tasty and easy to make, so you can indulge in them when hunger strikes between meals. It could be a finger food, a jar snack, Snacks for athletes, weight loss or something you can whip up in a jiffy.
Starters are also a category of snacks, but as the name suggests, they are served at the beginning of a meal, usually during parties or other elaborate meals where guests are present. Starters must be handily-sized and easy-to-serve, but exciting to behold! The presentation counts a lot. In this section, we present a range of starters and snacks, together with some serving suggestions too. Try Batata Poha, Creamy Spinach Toast
