Its tailgating time!!

I learnt about ‘tailgating’ only after we moved to America!For those who do not know what it signifies ‘a tailgate party is a social event held on and around the open tailgate of a vehicle. Tailgating often involves consuming alcoholic beverages and grilling food. Tailgate parties usually occur in the parking lots, stadiums and arenas, before and occasionally after games and concerts.’ {Source-Wikipedia}.Having said that, you don’t really have to be at the game venues to enjoy a tailgating party.You can have it indoors or outdoors, with a group of friends or lounge on your own!Its a great way to enjoy some great foods that are easy to make and eat!Its the start of the football season and my friend Lane from Supper for a Steal  proposed ‘tailgating foods’ for this Sunday Supper!

I’m bringing Chicken Meatballs for this event that has just the right flavors with an Indian twist!My meatballs are moist, juicy, perfectly sized to munch-on while watching your favorite team play!These balls are crunchy and rustic looking on the outside but incredibly soft on the inside with the lovely mint and coriander marrying beautifully giving them lots of fresh flavor.The best thing about these are that the food processor does all the work for you so you don’t have to work out a sweat in preparing them :) They’re super easy, delicious and certain to please kids and adults :)

    I’ve lived in America my whole life, but I was still hazy on the whole concept of tailgating. You seem like you have a perfect understanding of it! Particularly the alcoholic beverages part…lol. Anyway, I love recipes like this that can be mixed up in a food processor! Thank you for sharing this for our tailgating #SundaySupper!
