VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Want to spice up your Super Bowl party? Rinku Bhattacharya, a Valhalla-based cookbook author who emphasizes seasonal Indian cooking in her books and Spice Chronicles blog has the following suggestions:

  • Mix up flavors. For starters, instead of regular guac and chips, try guacamole with toasted garlic and cumin (recipe here) or a homemade recipe for hummus; this one (recipe here ) has options for roasted red bell pepper and cilantro.
  • Make munchies. Think outside the box with cocktail samosas and fritters (recipe here ) or pakoras; this recipe ups the ante in terms of nutrition with kale and red onion (recipe here ).
  • Wing-it! Football and wings are a natural, of course; the addition of spices can make them more memorable (maybe even than the game for those who are more foodies than fans?). This one (recipe here ) calls for citrus and pineapple wings. If you like your chicken sweet and sticky, try this Asian- inspired version with hoisin and scallions (recipe here ).
  • Brew up a pot. Let your slow cooker do the work for you with this recipe for Channa Masala chili; go here for details.
