Across All Occasions: Authentic Indian Side dishes

Small food plates are available in a wide variety depending on the culture & cuisine. Small plates are standard in all establishments, from food vendors and street carts to fine dining establishments. A few Indian appetizers from best Indian restaurants are listed below: Khandvi

A mixture of gram flour, yoghurt, turmeric, & ginger paste is used to make the famous Gujarati snack known as khandvi. The batter is baked before being formed into bite-sized portions. It is often eaten as a snack or an appetizer and may be served cold or hot. Chutneys and cheese gratings are often added to these tasty appetizers to give them further seasoning. It is advised to use coconut or coriander as a garnish for khandvi.

Paneer Tikka

The ingredients for such a North India tikka dish, a veg appetizer, include a mixture of seasoned paneer cheese with veggies cooked inside a tandoor, an Indian oven. Paneer, a soft and crumbly cheese, is the foundation for this veggie tikka dish. Paneer, tomatoes, onion, or pepper pieces are skewered, cooked, and then flavoured with lime juice and the hot powder chaat spice. The meal may sometimes be served with other salads or mint chutney. Paneer tikka, a variation of the meal served with such a hot sauce, and paneer tikka wraps made of Indian bread are two examples of the dish's variations.

Manchurian Gobi

In the classic Indo-Chinese meal known as "Gobi Manchurian," fried cauliflower (also known as "Gobi") is combined with a hot, sour, & spicy sauce (Manchurian). The meal comes in both a dry and a gravy variant. The dry form is often offered as an appetizer or bar snack using ketchup as just a dipping sauce, but the gravy version has a thick sauce prepared with corn starch and is typically served as a main meal with either cooked or steamed rice just on the side. The cauliflower stalks are deep-fried till crisp after being battered. When making the sauce, ingredients such as garlic, onion, onions, scallion, ginger, soy sauce, oils, sugar, vinegar and chilli peppers are often combined with water, flour, corn starch, red chilli powder, and spices.

Papad Masala

A mixture of sour and spicy seasonings is sprinkled on papadum flatbread to make the traditional Indian snack known as masala papad. Typically prepared with rice, lentil, and chickpea flour, the bread is baked or fried. A combination of onions, tomato, coriander, hot chilli powder, lime juice, chaat spice, and salt is sprinkled on top after it has been baked or fried till crispy. The topping must be added after flatbread has been cooked or roasted, or it will become soggy. Cucumbers, fresh mint, carrots, or uncooked mango may all be added as extra ingredients if preferred. Masala papad is often served as a snack or perhaps an appetizer, but it may also be a side dish for many Indian cuisines.

Kabab Boti

A kind of Indian kebab known as a "boti" is made with pieces of meat (usually lamb, chicken, and beef) that have been marinated in a sauce made of yoghurt, garlic, ginger, chillies, papaya, and spices, including garam masala, chilli powder, & cumin. The meat pieces are skewered, perfectly grilled after marinade, and then coated with butter. Usually served with raw onions, lemon slices, chutneys, and Indian bread on the side, these kebabs are relished as a snack or an appetizer. If you're making lamb or goat kebabs, stew the marinated meat pieces in boiling water before grilling them.

With so much simple Indian food, throwing a celebration this weekend or any other occasion won't seem difficult!
