Smile! Cuz’ these dishes are totally insta-worthy!

Lights, camera, action! Basically, you have to take out your camera, put on some lights and get cooking right now cause it’s World Photography Day. What could be a better day to flaunt your cooking art with some awesome photography skills too. So here I am to help you with some fancy yet simple and quick recipes which will make sure that you awe everyone with your expertise. And it’s time to click some ‘gram worthy pictures, who knows you might even go viral! Aur nahi bhi toh, mummy kafi khush ho jayegi by seeing your skills, so it’s a win-win! Do not waste time we have so much to do, so get going!

  1. Indian Style Crositini 

Making a bruschetta might take you some time but not this mini cute version of it. A fancy Italian appetizer (or a side dish) with some masaledar desi takda calls for some extra likes on your social media. Doesn’t it?

  1. Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus 

Looking for a meaty starter? Bright red bacon wrapped around green-hued asparagus baked and plated beautifully is not only going to get you extra likes and comments but will also melt your heart and palate with its taste. Sounds like a double whammy to me!

  1. Curried Mushroom Khari

Why serve those old basic starters when you can make something unique and tasty? Generally, khari biscuits are served with coffee or chai but this can be munched without any accompaniment. Creamy and cheesy mushroom mixture filled inside flaky kharis and served hot can get your party started!

  1. Butter Chicken 

Isn’t the name enough to make everyone love it? The love for butter chicken is not just constant in India but this craze has travelled all over the world. You can plate it in a nice white or black bowl with a dollop of cream on top. I am pretty sure it’s gonna look appealing to another level. 

  1. Pesto Chicken Roulade 

A cheesy roulade made with chicken breast rolled in flavourful pesto sauce, baked and roasted to perfection. Sounds like a task? But, it’s not so difficult and trust me, you can add it to your menu without fear. Serve it with some spaghetti and extra pesto sauce as your main course and don’t forget to click a picture before enjoying it!

  1. Khakra Sandwich 

Every Gujarati reading this will be overjoyed seeing this delicacy. A unique take on a sandwich, which is made with khakras and you can even call it a chaat. The flavoursome chutneys, tangy yogurt topped with some chaat masala and finished with crunchy sev is definitely a treat to your palate and eyes both.

  1. Katori Chaat

This is going to make for the most colourful and prettiest picture on the menu. A basket made out of deep-fried potatoes and stuffed with some chole, creamy yogurt, spicy green chutney, tangy red chutney and finished with some spices and savouries. After you’re done making this, all you and your friends are gonna say is ‘oh my god!’

  1. Red Velvet Cream Puff 

Isn’t the name itself enough to make you feel like you are in a lavish restaurant? These cute little red puffs with a velvety texture filled with whipped cream can steal anyone’s heart. It’s going to be a show-stopper for sure!

  1. Fruit Trifle

Classics are never out of style. This classic British dessert is so gorgeous that it is alone enough to make heads turn by its appetising looks. Mangoes, custard, kiwi, cherries, blueberries and what not! How can someone not love this beauty?
