There’s so much to life than regular Tikka! How about swapping it with Dahi ke Kebab?

Prepared with hung curd, these melt-in-mouth Kebabs contain roasted chana powder, chopped coriander (with stem), chopped green chillies, and a range of Indian spices. Serve it alongside tangy-spicy chutney or tomato ketchup and you are good to start the party.

Well, none of us really stop at just one single option – so the next appetizer that’s most preferred by all is Aloo Tikki, but replacing it with Stuffed Hara Bhara Candy will do no harm, and in fact, leave the guests wanting for more!

This unique snack is certain to add sparkle to your Diwali-special dinner table. All you need to do is grab some chopped vegetables, mix chana powder, spinach paste, and stuff it with cheese. Give it the shape of candy and shallow or deep fry them.

A lot can be attained if the curry is tweaked from the regular to the extraordinary. A typical Indian festive menu would always include Paneer Makhani or Paneer Butter Masala. What if you can use the same curry to make a delicious Risotto that guarantees to stand out?

This take on the scrumptious Risotto includes cooking the Risotto in a delicious Makhani gravy with fine cubes of paneer. The best way to finish it off is by adding fresh cream and parmesan cheese in abundant quantities.

Instead of making the classic Dal Tadka, switch to Dhaba ki Dal. With just three legumes; mainly chana dal, urad dal, and Arhar dal, and some basic spices, finely chopped onions, and tomatoes, you can achieve a burst of flavours like never before. Serve the Dal and gravy with an assortment of bread or aromatic Jeera Rice.

Can any Diwali ever be complete without some delicious Besan Laddoos? But as a dessert, there’s so much scope to add some twist to the traditional mithai. The ghee-soaked Laddoos, made from gram flour, can be crushed with some dry fruits to create a base-like for cheese-cake. On which, you can add a thick, frothy layer of cream cheese, and infuse it with saffron for some added color, fragrance, taste, and richness.

Make your party super enjoyable by trying out these delicious foods. I assure you won’t have any leftovers for the next day!
