3 Appetizers That Will Absolutely Stun your Guests

In order to make a successful party, you need to have food. There are many reasons why food is important at parties. As a kid, I always enjoyed appetizers like Chilly Paneer, Pakoras at birthday parties. In fact, that’s how I remember a party!

First, it’s a good way to get people talking and making friends with each other. Second, it’s a way for people to mingle and socialize with each other. Third, it’s the perfect time for people to eat and drink something that makes them feel good about themselves.

Finally, food can be a great way of celebrating the occasion or in this case the party itself.

Food is also essential because it provides something that everyone wants: energy!

The first course of a party is always the appetizers. These small bites are crucial for getting people in a social mood before they dive into their main dish. This can help make sure that everyone has a good time and can start conversations with others around them.

To that end, here are three appetizers that will stun your guests at your next party.

Appetizers That Will Stun Your Guests

Mini Tacos

Guests at parties love mini tacos – and I love them too! They are easy to eat and serve and can be customized with different toppings. The newer Rajma-based tacos from Dominos have become my absolute favourite!

Mini tacos are a great appetizer for a party because they are light and healthy. They can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until you need them during the party.

Mini tacos also make good finger food for people who have allergies or dietary restrictions because they can be made with different types of meat, vegetables, and sauces that most people would eat.

If there’s one dish that’s gaining popularity across the globe, especially in the appetizer space, it has to be Kebabs. A dish that is quite popular in the Indian sub-continent. Made predominantly from meat, there are vegetarian and vegan kebabs as well. These are usually served with paratha or rumali roti.

Kebabs are known to be soft and tender laden with spices. Punchy flavours and melt-in-mouth consistency is what define a good Kebab. There’s always some mint chutney to go with Kebabs along with some onions and lemon.


Another popular appetizer that will surely leave your guests wanting more is the Tikka. With its origins in the Mughal Dynasty, Tikka is a popular appetizer across the world, especially in India. The dish, made from chunks of meat or Paneer and other vegetables is marinated with a spicy layer of masalas and grilled.

It’s a dish people of all ages will love. You can control the spices easily. While the preparation time can be a tad more, the result is totally worth it! FYI: Paneer Tikka is my absolute favourite, so if you’re hosting a party ever, you know whom to invite 😉

Appetizers are the most important part of any party. The appetizers are the first thing that people see and they set the mood for the rest of the party. Make sure that you choose a dish that can be made in advance so that it is ready for your guests when they arrive.
