Living in Dubai gives you an opportunity to perfectly balance out your work and leisure life. While there are numerous aspects to hosting and enjoying leisure, it definitely requires some skills to successfully pull it together. Especially, when you are living in a fast-paced metropolitan city and have a lot on your plate.
Of the many ways that offer enjoyment and entertainment, throwing a birthday party is definitely at the top of the list. While it’s a fun time for the birthday person, there are various tasks to take care of, and food is a major chunk of it. From outsourcing it to professional caterers and home food catering services, one can get quality and delicious food for the event.
Since it turns out to be a tedious task for the parents and the hosts, below are some of the delicious items that you can add to your menu.
Thai Lettuce Wraps
These wraps are a complete meal, the one that will make you forget you are eating healthy. This traditional Thai dish is called Larb Gai, quick to make and full of fresh flavors with a hint of chili. Use the meat of your choice, bundle it up in lettuce, and serve with rice.
While the name may sound different, everyone makes an effort to search for the recipe. Searches include Laab Gai, Laap Gai, Lahb Gai and the interpretation continues. But the original recipe consists of a perfect balance of savory, sweet, sour, and spiciness with aromatic herbs and that crispy crunch of the lettuce. Addictive isn’t it?
It doesn’t take much to prepare for that. Begin with mixing chili sauce, ginger, peanut butter, soy sauce, and crushed red pepper to make a sauce and set it aside. Now heat oil in the pan, add aromatics (garlic, ginger, chili, lemongrass), meat (of your choice), and then incorporate the prepared sauce. You can also add sautéed vegetables for more taste. Cook for 5 minutes and it’s ready.
Spoon it out in lettuce cups and serve!
Ultra Crispy Buffalo Wings
Who would want to miss out on those crispy wings, that too buffalo ones! This will definitely be an amazing addition to your food menu as no one would want to miss out on that crispy skin, that will make you feel like it’s fried when it’s not.
Buffalo wings are unbelievably easy to make. Ingredients include paprika, onion, garlic, mustard, ginger, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper. You can also alter some of them according to your taste and let them marinate. Before making, add a coating of buttermilk, egg, flour, cornflour, and oil. Bake and serve hot!
Moreover, here are two steps that can make a true difference to your crispy wings. Firstly, make sure that you toss the wings in the baking powder, yes that’s the secret ingredient. It eliminates the moisture from the skin, thereby making it crispy. And don’t worry about the baking powder, it won’t affect the taste at all.
Secondly, when you start cooking your food, make sure you start at a low temperature and move up. This ensures that the wings are perfectly cooked inside out.
Salami Cream Cheese Roll-ups
Salami Cream Cheese Roll-ups are quick and easy to make. It hardly takes 10 minutes to prepare a perfectly whipped platter. You can choose to serve them alone or as a topping on crackers for delicious and easy party bites.
It requires three simple and basic ingredients to cook it up; cream cheese, green onion, and sliced hard salami. Stir together cream cheese and sliced green onion to make a mixing of filling. This gives it a soft and herbal taste.
Next is the assembling of the rolls. Place six slices of salami and form a rectangle. Ensure that there are no gaps as you overlay them. Now pour a layer of cream cheese and spread it out evenly. Make sure to leave out a 1.5-inch border around the edges. Fold the salami tightly and slice smaller rolls. You can serve them on a cracker right away or refrigerate them overnight for a firm grip.
