- White Sauce Pasta
Recipe: Well, it’s super simple! You will need a pack of ChefBoss Creamy Pasta Sauce, 300 grams boiled pasta, 1 cup veggies/chicken as per preference, 1 tbsp cooking oil and some grated cheese.
In a wide pan, heat 1 tbsp oil and sauté some chopped onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and carrots, or any other vegetables of your choice. You can add chicken to this if you want. Next, add the entire contents of a pack of Creamy Pasta sauce from ChefBoss and 2-3 tbsp of water to the pan, and mix well. Let it cook for 1-2 minutes on low flame. Next up, add boiled pasta of your choice to the pan and mix it well so that the sauce gets coated well onto the pasta. Let it cook on low to medium heat for about 1-2 minutes and your yummy pasta is ready!
P.S. You can now sprinkle some grated cheese on it before you serve to add an extra something to your pasta!
- Cocktail Pizza
Recipe: Nothing says party food better than pizza. And if that pizza is bite-sized, then even better. You will need a pack of mini pizza base. These are readily available at most bakeries. If you are unable to find them, then you can cut a regular pizza base into tiny pieces and use them instead. Apart from this, you need ChefBoss Pasta & Pizza sauce, some finely chopped veggies, grated cheese and seasoning mix (optional).
First up, apply a generous layer of ChefBoss Pasta & Pizza sauce onto each pizza base. Top them with a mix of chopped veggies of your choice (you can even add tiny paneer/chicken pieces) and sprinkle grated cheese on them. Brush a pan with oil and heat it. Line the pizzas in the pan and cook them covered till the base turns light brown and the cheese melts. Your cocktail pizzas are ready!
P.S. You can also bake them in a microwave/oven as per the heat settings of your equipment.
- Schezwan Chicken/Paneer
Recipe: This could be the star snack of your evening! All you need is a pack of ChefBoss Schezwan cooking sauce, 1 cup chopped veggies (onion, capsicum, carrots, broccoli etc.), 200 grams of fried chicken/paneer (8-10 medium sized pieces) and some cooking oil.
In a pan, lightly toss the veggies in 1 tablespoon cooking oil for 2 minutes. Add the chicken/paneer pieces to the pan now and let them cook for another 3-4 minutes. After that, add the contents of an entire pack of ChefBoss Schezwan cooking sauce and 2 tablespoon water to the pan and give it a good mix. Let it cook for a minute or two and it’s done!
P.S. If you want the snack to be less spicy, then you can adjust the amount of sauce you add to the mix.
- Dry Manchurian
Recipe: Come on! Everyone knows this – Any desi Indian party is incomplete without street-style manchurian. So, here is a simple recipe for you. You need a pack of ChefBoss Manchurian cooking sauce, 1 cup chopped vegetables (onion and capsicum), 200 grams (7-8 manchurian balls, vegetarian, gobi or chicken), 1 tablespoon cooking oil and chopped coriander (optional).
In a pan, toss the chopped veggies with 1 tablespoon oil for 2 minutes. Add 4 tablespoon water and the content of an entire pack of ChefBoss Manchurian cooking sauce to the pan and mix well. Let it cook for another 2 minutes. Now, add the manchurian balls to the pan and cook for 2-4 minutes till all the balls get coated with the sauce. Garnish with chopped coriander and it’s done!
P.S. You can adjust the quantity of sauce depending on your tolerance for salt and other ingredients.
- Club Sandwich
Recipe: The simplest and most evergreen party snack of all times, ladies and gentlemen – the club sandwich. All you need are ChefBoss Jalapeno Mayo, a few pieces of bread cut into 4 triangles each, sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, salt & pepper and some cheese slices cut into 4 triangles each.
Slather all the bread pieces with a generous amount of ChefBoss Jalapeno Mayo. Place the sliced cucumbers on one piece and top it with a slice of cheese and some salt and pepper. Now place the second bread piece on top of it and add tomatoes onto it. Add a cheese slice, some pepper and place another piece of bread on it to close the sandwich. You could even add another layer with some paneer/grilled chicken if you want. And it’s ready to be served!
