In our home, the holiday season starts early in October with the Indian festival of lights, Diwali.  So till the grand finale, our Christmas dinner, we enjoy a variety of multi-cuisine dinners.

More than the main dish, my family, especially the kids, are big fans of appetizers.  Here I am sharing some of our favorites, that I make in the Instant Pot or Air fryer. I also included an alternate cooking method, oven or stovetop, for your convenience.
