A troop of friends coming over in short notice ? And you don't have anything jazzy at home to serve as appetizers ? Don't panic and don't worry, here is an ace up your sleeve for such situations - Cracker Topper. They are perfect for any party, regardless of the number of guests, or even as snacks to go with your cup of tea. Crispy base with a creamy cheese & tomato topping is divine. Not only does it look attractive, these quick bites are satiating too.
I have used crackers with garlic & herb flavor but you could use normal flavor or even Monaco biscuits. I like to add Parmesan cheese to sour-cream as it gives the perfect flavor & texture to the smooth & creamy sour-cream but you could use the cheese easily available to you. Adding chili sauce not only adds a tinge of spice but also gives that slight orangish color which compliments this dish.
1 tomato finely chopped
few coriander leaves for garnishing.
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoon finely chopped onions (I used spring onions)
To make Topping :
In a bowl combine all the ingredients mentioned under "Topping Ingredients" together & mix well. You can make this ahead of time & store in refrigerator for up to a day or two.
To Assemble the Appetizer:
- Arrange the crackers on the serving plate.
- Add a spoonful of the Topping (or as much the cracker can hold) on the cracker.
- Place some finely chopped tomato pieces on the topping.
- Sprinkle some salt & pepper over the tomatoes & finally top it with a coriander leaf as garnish.
Tip:Assemble these appetizers just 5-10 mins ahead of serving to retain the crunchiness of the base.
