We have often come across food boards known as ‘charcuterie boards’ at various parties. The platter generally includes cured meats, cheese, fruits, crackers and bread. The best thing about the charcuterie board is that you can customise it as you wish! If you are planning a Diwali party, this charcuterie board is a must-have. While there are a variety of food boards to choose from, you can make this Fafda Chaat Board.
Take note of the recipe:
- You will need ingredients like oil, mustard seeds, green chilli, hing, curry leaves, raw papaya, raw mango, haldi powder, sugar, salt, hung curd, ginger, green chilli, haldi powder and red chilli powder
- Start by taking a pan with oil and heat it. Once the oil heats, add mustard seeds, chopped green chillies, hing and curry leaves and let it crackle.
- Then, take a raw papaya, julienne and add it to the pan sauteing it for a while.
- Now, take raw mango which is julienned and add it to the pan.
- Now, mix it well and add haldi, sugar and salt and saute till raw papaya and raw mango turn mushy.
- Now, make a tadka with oil, chopped ginger, chopped green chilli, mustard seeds, red chilli, haldi and hing.

Other Types Of Party Platters You Should Have
1. Chaat Board
Your favourite street food is disassembled and served on a chaat board. Place bowls of chutney, whipped yoghurt, and papdi on a wooden board. Add heaps of chopped tomatoes, onions, pomegranate seeds, and sev for texture and colour.
2. Hummus Board
At a party, almost everyone loves to indulge in chip and dip activities. Hummus is a classic Middle Eastern dish, but for a unique twist, try the delectable achaari tadka, which is created with pickling spices infused with mustard oil. Serve it with freshly made warm pita, veggie sticks, potato chips, or your favourite cracker cookies. Crush some banana chips or lavash on top for texture.
3. Farsan Board
During Diwali, you will see these foods on almost every celebration platter: samosas, kachoris, fafda-jalebi, and patra. But adding extras like fig preserve or mango chutney can really improve the snacking experience.
4. Desi Cheese Board
Replace the boring crackers with something crunchy like teekhi sev, puff pastry sticks, khari cookies, cornflakes, and masala peanuts. In addition to adding texture and crunch to your desi cheese board, these spice-filled treats also offer a flavour contrast with creamy or aged cheeses.
5. Mithai Board
Apart from being suitable for Diwali, an Indian mithai board gives your visitors the flexibility to select their favourites. This also turns the dessert course into a casual affair, enabling visitors to rise from their chairs and clear some room for that final morsel of decadent confections, without which no Diwali feast would be complete.
