Quick Appetizers

Appetizer for Monthly Mingle
10 Brittania 50-50 biscuits or any other crackers
For the Toppings
Combo one
1 boiled potato
prepare the mashed potato
¼ tsp of salt
¼ tsp of red pepper powder
¼ tsp of coriander powder
mix and mash them well
Combo two
Badaam(peanuts) chutney
½ cup of peanuts
1onion chopped
2 green chillies
salt as per taste
blend them to a thick paste in a blender
Combo three
Some Paneer grated or chopped finely
Grated carrots
Little bit of boiled corn
¼ tsp of Black Pepper
Salt as per taste
Mix them well and set aside for ½ hrs .

Coriander leaves for decoration

What you should now
Arrange the biscuits/crackers on a plate , scoop little bit of each toppings over biscuits and serve with cold drinks or any other juice. I had refrigerated for 2hrs before serving them,to my surprise they tasted even better.
I have assembled some of the toppings which my family and friends liked, be a little more innovative and the toppings can vary from chicken, shrimp or fish pieces that are slightly sautéed with black pepper and salt .
This appetizer requires very little time to assemble and it tastes even better.
This is going to Monthly Mingle , an event brain child of Meeta of Whats For Lunch Honey , now being hosted by Mansi of Fun and Food (Monthly Mingle)
Happy Cooking Friends.
