Appetizers

Be it any cuisine, appetizers really set the tone of the whole meal. It’s the beginning of a whole experience and if the beginning is not right, what follows after loses its importance. Apart from a typical meal starter for Indians samosas, chaats and vada pavs are always a bit closer to their heart. Huddled around a local chaat stall, demolishing one pani poori after another while also chatting away about life et al is not a choice – it’s the way of life and part of the culture. Please find some recipes here that might bring back a few such memories for you or maybe create some?
