01 Kebabs


Kebabs are evergreen party foods. They are easy to serve and available in a variety of flavours. The best part your guests can hold the skewer and eat it without dirtying their fingers. Here are some popular kebabs to serve:

  • Chicken – Reshmi Kebab, Tangri Kebab

  • Vegetarian – Paneer Kebab
  • Fruit Kebab – For the sweet lovers
  • Grilled Vegetable Kebab – For the healthy eaters

And, don’t forget to provide your guests with dipping sauces – mint-coriander chutney, mayonnaise, or ketchup.

02 Chicken Tikka


Chicken tikka is one of the most popular dishes in the country. Not just in India, it’s popular overseas as well. Tender chunks of boneless chicken are marinated in a special sauce of garam masala, coriander, ginger and yogurt. The marinated chicken is then grilled on skewers.

You can serve guests with individual mini-skewers with the tikka. Alternatively, you can serve the tikka on a platter and provide your guests with toothpicks to pick the tikka pieces.

03 Roti French toast


This is the Indian twist on the classic French toast. This one is perfect for the sweet lovers. Pieces of roti are coated in a mixture of egg, sugar and milk and fried. Once friend it is rolled for easy serving. You can opt to serve it as it is or fill the roti with a sweet filling of your choice – nutella, Milkmaid, a mixture of grated coconut and sugar.

To serve, cut the fried and filled rotis into bite-sized pieces. Provide your guests with toothpicks to pick up the bread.

04 Prawns Fry


Forget chicken nuggets and regular popcorn. Instead, serve spicy prawns fry at your next house party. The prawns are marinated in a mixture of green chillis, ginger, garlic and lime juice and then coated in a batter of flour, eggs and breadcrumbs. Golden brown and crispy, these are sure to be a hit among your guests. By leaving the tail on, guests get a handle to pick up each piece. Serve with mint-coriander chutney for a tangy finish.

05 Momos


The appetizer from the North-Eastern states, momos are highly versatile. You can fill it with any meat of your choice – chicken, mutton and even a medley of vegetables for the vegetarians. Momos can be either steamed or pan-fried. A spicy peanut chutney or a fiery Sikkimese tomato chutney goes well with momos.

06 Mini Samosas


The quintessential Indian party food. Instead, of serving full-sized samosas, make them mini so guests can finish it off in a couple of bites. Serve samosas with a minty yogurt dip or gun-powder chutney.

07 Indian Style Chips and Dips


Chips and dips are a popular Mexican appetiser. At your next house party in Gurgaon, give this popular dish an India twist. Cut up Indian flatbreads like chapatti, naan into small pieces and serve them in a bowl. Flavour the soft flatbreads with dips like onion chutney, baigan bharta, etc. Provide your guests with a variety of dips if you’re looking to serve a hearty meal.

08 Khasta Kachori


Kachori is a popular evening snack in central and northern India. They are crispy and usually filled with lentils. You can serve kachoris with a variety of sauces to provide your guests with a wholesome platter.

09 Pakoras


Again, the options with Pakoras are endless. You can choose the classics – onion pakora, potato pakora or go out with paneer pakoras, mushroom pakoras, etc.

10 Potato Patty


Irrespective of whether your guests are vegetarians or hard-core non-vegetarians, everyone loves a good potato patty. Cook and mash potato. Season it with garlic and ginger paste, curry leaves, green chillies. Coat the patties with flour and deep-fry. Serve with tangy sauces for a flavourful treat.

As you can see, there are plenty of options for house party finger foods. If you notice, the majority of the dishes on this list require dips, sauces or chutneys. So, you can prepare a couple of chutneys and use them for all the dishes.
