It is often said that Asians are always eating throughout the day and even into the early hours of the morning. And when you consider the delicious tidbits and snack foods available in most parts of Asia, this isn't at all surprising. These relatively light and tasty Asian snacks and finger foods can be enjoyed at any time, whether to stave off hunger pangs between or before meals, or to satisfy a peckish appetite.

Here you will find a selection of some of the tastiest Asian snacks from as far west as India, and as far north as China, Korea and Japan, as well as recipes from around Southeast Asia. You will find that some recipes are as traditional as grandmother's, while others have been modified for contemporary taste buds.

Japan's favorite sushi and Vietnam's popular rice paper rolls make a welcome appearance, and so do spicy Thai dishes, including Spicy Grilled Mussels and a westernized version of the classic Thai red beef curry, which is served in tiny pies made from puff pastry. You will also find refreshing herbal flavors from Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia m dishes such as Fragrant Chicken Wings and Mint and Basil. There are also several satisfying snacks from Korea, such as Korean Vegetable Pancakes, and a few timeless classics from China.

The recipes take into consideration current concerns about healthy eating, with plenty of low-fat dishes and a number of vegetarian options. If you are watching your red-meat consumption, you will be delighted with the classic Grilled Tandoori Fish Morsels, and vegetarians will love the Indian-style Grilled Bean Curd Tikka as well as the delicious Crispy Vegetarian Fritters with Spicy Tamarind Dip. Healthier alternatives to various cooking methods and ingredients are also provided.

Whether you're looking for an after-school snack for the children, finger foods for a picnic or an afternoon tea party, starters for a sit-down dinner, an impressive spread for a cocktail reception, or healthy tidbits for the weight-conscious, you're sure to find something suitable here.


Finger food is food meant to be eaten directly using the hands, in contrast to food eaten with a knife and fork, chopsticks, or other utensils. In some cultures, food is almost always eaten with the hands; for example, Ethiopian cuisine is eaten by rolling various dishes up in injera bread. In the South Asian subcontinent, food is traditionally always eaten with hands. Foods considered street foods are frequently, though not exclusively, finger foods.

In the Western world, finger foods are often either appetizers or entree/main course items. In the Western world, examples of generally accepted finger food are miniature beef pies, sausage rolls, sausages on sticks, cheese and olives on sticks, chicken drumsticks or wings, spring rolls, miniature quiches, samosas, sandwiches, Merenda or other such based foods, such as pitas or items in buns, onion bhajis, potato wedges, vol au vents, several other such small items and risotto balls (arancini). Other well-known foods that are generally eaten with the hands include pizza, hot dogs, fruit and bread. Dessert items such as cookies, pastries, ice cream in cones, or ice pops are often eaten with the hands but are not, in common parlance, considered finger foods. In East Asia, foods like pancakes or flatbreads and street foods such as kebabs are often eaten with the hands.

In many Western countries there are catering businesses that supply finger-foods for events such as weddings, engagements, birthdays and other milestone celebrations. For weddings, in particular, finger foods are becoming more popular because they are less expensive and offer more flexibility with menu choices. Gourmet hors d'oeuvres such as quiches, pâté, caviar, and tea sandwiches are suitable for a formal event, whereas more familiar food such as sliced fruits, deli trays, crackers, and cookies are preferred at more casual celebrations
