This sunday I wanted to make a quick snack using readymade Canapes. I had bought Monita canapes from the supermarket a few days ago.
I remember my Mom making a yummy recipe using the same Monita canapes when I was a kid. Mom had learnt the recipe from a cookery class that she attended about 30 yrs ago . I did not want to ask Mom right away.
I started checking out some youtube videos for Canapes. I did not find any recipe that appeared similar to what Mom used to make.
Meanwhile I ended up watching canapes made with salted biscuits , toast, crackers , cucumber etc.
I liked one simple recipe and I had all the ingredients at home.
However, this recipe is more of an appetizer rather than a snack.
Here it is –
-Cucumber peeled and sliced into half centimeter thick pieces.
-Cut cheese slices into squares or use grated cheese
-Mint / coriander leaves / parsley for garnish
Curd/Yoghurt is usually watery and hence cannot be used , it has to be thick.
Place the regular curd in a strainer and let all the excess water drain.
Add salt n pepper to the thick curd.
Slice the tomatoes.
Place a little Yoghurt on top of each of the cucumber slices.
Place a slice of tomato and a couple of pieces of cheese on the yoghurt.
You can also use grated cheese instead of cheese slices.
Garnish with a mint leaf or coriander leaf .
You can also add chopped jalapenos and olives to the yogurt mixture .
A bright , colorful and healthy appetizer is ready.
This is my first canape recipe and I am definitely fascinated by Canapes. There are loads of recipes on the Internet. Numerous varieties of canapes can be made in a jiffy to treat your near and dear ones 🙂 .
Get creative !
