Most fellow-hosts are almost always worried about what snacks to serve - the main course and desserts are easier to finalize! After much thought they settle for common, tried-and-tested dishes such as Paneer Tikkas. There will be a time when your guests would have enough of it.
In response to this problem, this book presents a compilation of 61 delicious and innovative Kebab, tikka and tikki recipes. For those who are willing to look beyond Indian snacks, this book includes a section of all-time favorite international finger foods.
Some of the kebabs have been deep-fried or cooked in ghee. You could shallow-fry these or use oil instead of ghee, so that you can rest assured on the health front too. And well, there is something for everybody, from the live-for-the-day eater to the more discerning health-conscious ones.
That said, variety alone does not ensure that the starters/snacks served during your party become a huge hit with the guests. A major part of the planning involves combining these snacks appropriately into what is today popularly-known as a "platter". Platters are a dominant phenomenon today. They ensure guests a well-chosen selection of snacks replete with rotis, a salad or two and suitable chutneys and sauces. A well-planned platter is wholesome and nutritious and capable of serving as a meal in itself for the snack-lover, while serving as a starter for the rest.
This book comes replete with 10 platter suggestions that guide you on how tot serve your tikis, tikkas and kebabs, and the accompaniments that we feel they would ideally combine with. These platters are based on specific themes. Plus there 9s a second index included in this book which categories the recipes according to type this enables you to exercise your imagination to come up with your own platter option.
The next time you plan a party or are attacked by a sudden hunger pang, fret not, and just pull out this book. Prepare some of these easy-to-follow recipes and watch the platters empty while the diners' faces light up.
