These canapes were an on the spur invention by my dear friend Dina while we were decorating cookies together. We were in another friend (Victoria Martinez)s house and she had brought out some dip she had made, and served it with the green chutney which i had made and we just made up a few canapes!! The result was soo amazing we decided to take a photo of it and i decided to share it with all of you !! With their kind permission also.
For all of you who dont know what canapes are , they are small pieces of untoasted or toasted bread with different toppings.
They are great for parties and also for starters. You can use any kind of bread, i dont excatly remember the bread we used, but it was some kind of multigrain brown bread-untoasted of german origin.
Bread of you choice, cut into squares or triangles
a little sauce /mayonnaise, cream cheese of your choice (we used a home made cream/mayo sauce which i will share the recipe)
a little green chutney (recipe on the blog)
a little fried onion and walnuts for the garnish
Spread the bread with the chutney, top with sauce of your choice and sprinkle with nuts and fried onions (we used the ready made fried onions as they are really crispy)
HOW TO MAKE CREAM CHEESE DELUXE SAUCE:
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup of cream cheese
1 tablespoon of fine mustard (not grainy)
2 tablespoons of chopped spring onions(the white part)
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
Put everything in the blender (i used my amazing bullet) and mix well. This sauce can be refrigerated for a week (thats if it lasts!!) Also goes well with french fries, crisps and crackers
For Jain version : omit the onions and use eggless mayonnaise
