Indian-Inspired Vegetarian Wonton Appetizer Recipe

Christmas celebrations are a few days away and I've been experimenting in the kitchen with new, fun appetizers that could be served that day. Whenever I host a dinner, I try to serve dishes that reflect the multi-cultural aspect of our household. The idea behind these fusion appetizers was to use Asian wonton wrappers and fill them with flavorful Indian-inspired navratan korm, which consists of a creamy curry made of nuts and vegetables. 

Korma is usually served with naan (flat Indian bread) and can be messy if served buffet-style. So making little bite-sized pockets is a neat way to introduce someone to this dish. Once the filling is ready, the key is to ensure that the wonton is well sealed so the filling doesn't leak while frying. With a little practice it's really easy.

I was inspired by the holiday season to make this savory pie. I made my own yam-flavored pie crust and filled it with French green lentils, red onions, crème fraîche and yams and topped it with smoked Cheddar cheese.

To ensure the yams were fully cooked, I twice-baked them. This all-the-way yam pie could be a great highlight to your holiday table.

How To Make Homemade Pie Crust in 3 Minutes (Video)

12.03.14 by Jackie

This is a quick and easy recipe to make your own pie crust. I usually have homemade dough stored in either my refrigerator or freezer for last-minute dinner items. You can use the dough for savory tarts, fruit pies or the crust for pecan squares just like those I prepared yesterday (I added 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar to the dough to sweeten the dessert a bit). 

The proportions are great for a (9-inch) tart mold (I made an artichoke tart). If you don't have one, no worries; you can improvise a free-form galette without requiring any specific kitchen equipment.

For easier readability, I added the recipe in print below. So without further ado, here it is.

Pumpkin Banana Cupcake Recipe

Little Aria asked to see one of her favorite classmates, Colin, on a playdate. Aria can be very detail-oriented and asked if we could prepare mini cupcakes for the occasion. To make the sweet treat a lot more playful for the children, I topped the cupcakes with icing and sugar cookie letters.

The cake part is made with mashed bananas and pumpkin and I used an alphabet cookie cutter set. Aria helped out all through the baking process and she loved it. Colin loved the cupcakes too, and I was amazed to see he knew his alphabet as well. Isn't it impressive at only the tender age of three? It was so precious to watch them have so much fun!

I'm planning to bake the same larger-version cupcakes on Thursday
