Masala Crispbread with Coriander Chutney #MyVita – A no cook recipe

Masala Crispbread

Masala Crispbread is an easy and instant appetiser that can be enjoyed before a meal or even as a quick snack. Crispbread is topped up with a salad mix of chopped cucumber,tomatoes, onions,coriander leaves with a good fat pinch of Spiced Powders.

Most Indian Restaurants out here in the UK, would serve a stack of Papads along with a variety of chutneys. These chutneys are often considered as an exotic  side and appeal quite difficult to make.It is normally Coriander chutney, Red Chutney and Mango Relish.  If the color of the chutney is light green and very mildly spiced then they are mixed with yogurt. Some of the local joints serve an Onion Relish too. Every restaurant has their signature chutneys to give the guests a pleasant welcome in their every visit.

Sigh!!! A weekend it was.. My blogging is slowly taking a steep turn, where passion is turning into part time profession. I was lucky to be a part of a TV ad commercial, supporting them in food styling campaign.

And Sunday was altogether a new experience yet again. I worked in collaboration with two established chef’s who are working on their catering website. More to come soon on this when their website is up. But I had to mention this here.. as they came up with the freshest of the produce I have ever seen. Curiousity in me didnt end here that I kept asking them where did they pick the ingredients and how would they use them and what not! Not sure if they found my Q’s like a pest.. but they were happily gasping away illustrating how they handpicked every bit.

I enjoy my journey as a food blogger for some beauteous moments like this. One of afternoon’s when we were driving down to Harrowgate in July, I was casually skimming through my messages to kill some time whilst waiting in gangling traffic jams. Late Friday afternoons are not the right time to start on a long car trips.. Instead of a pleasure trip they become miserable due tail gating traffic, construction work and Rain ( most times). Anyways… The mail read Peruvian cuisine and I was really intrigued to know more about it.

A decade ago , when we were newly married and were learning to be independent ,every new task , new chore , new routine , new guests used to be a challenge.

Waking up early in the morning at 6 am to let the doors open for the maid was soo hard.. that I would let her in and go back to bed, believing she would be truthful and do a fair job.  I was lucky, she was !!! But I was 22 when I got into this beautiful bonding….
