  1. Paneer Tikka Kebab with Coriander Chutney



  1. For this dish, we will marinate the paneer overnight, so it is easy to cook and serve during the party
  2. To prepare the marinade, take half a cup of greek yoghurt in a bowl. Add the chaat masala, coriander powder, red chilli powder, garam masala, ginger-garlic paste, mustard oil, and mix it well
  3. After whisking the batter for a while, add chopped cilantro, mint and lemon juice, and marinate the paneer in the mixture overnight
  4. Before the party, take a skewer and arrange the paneer, diced capsicum and onion on the skewer, as shown in the picture
  5. Bake the kebabs at 450 F degrees for 10 minutes. Now grill them over a stovetop for 2-3 minutes until they are lightly charred for the smokey taste
  6. Now for the chutney, put the coriander leaves, chopped ginger and green chilli, some salt, lemon juice and water in a blender. Blend it well, and your chutney is ready
  7. Serve the paneer tikka kebab hot with your fresh coriander chutney. 

2. Nachos with Cheese Dip



  1. In a small pan, take the butter and flour together for the base. Heat it on a low flame and gently keep whisking it until you see bubbles and the texture becomes silky smooth
  2. Next, add milk to the pan and keep whisking the mixture. Turn the heat up and let the milk simmer, so the mixture thickens up slightly and reaches a saucy texture
  3. Take the shredded cheddar and mix it into the batter gradually. Keep the heat low and avoid overheating the sauce
  4. After all the cheese has properly melted, add salt and chilli powder and stir well. Now taste the sauce and ensure the seasoning is up to your desired taste
  5. If the sauce is to your liking, take it off the pan and serve it cold with your nachos.
