Of late, the term Finger Foods is making a loud noise in the food industry. I first heard the term finger food when my son was a toddler and it meant the first kind of food which he can hold with his tiny hands directly. It includes all food items from a small stick of carrot to a cookie. This way, not only enabled to enjoy the experience but also teach them to be independent and develop their fine motor skills and co-ordination. But, as years rolled by this term has gained a new meaning and prominence. So, what exactly is finger food? It is just about any bite size piece of food that we can pick up and eat without dirtying our fingers. These bite sized foods are easy to pop into the mouth and they go perfectly well with drinks or cock tails that precedes the main course in any kind of a party.
These finger foods are gaining more and more prominence in many occasions as they are easy to make, easy to eat, utterly delicious and minimal wastage. The best part of the finger foods is that it can be eaten conveniently while walking around and talking and also it is easy to store leftovers. Though, people of all ages enjoy the finger foods, it is the children who relish these foods the most.

For an example, our traditional kuzhipaniyaram, unniappam, oats kozhukattai, Kara kozhukattai cauliflower pakoda etc can be served in colorful skewers which will be attractive as well as easy to eat. Likewise, the vada and the bajjis can be made bite sized and perfectly shaped. They also should be arranged on attractive platters and garnished well with complimentary colors.
