8 Recipes You can Cookt this Halloween under 10 Mins

Halloween! What do you feel when you hear that word?

Well, what I feel is excitement, blood rushing through my veins at the speed of a Japanese Bullet train. And my inner child feels scared.

But do you know what else is cool about Halloween? Take 5 secs to guess it.




Well, food of course!

(What were you expecting? Ghosts?) Halloween is the time where everyone (especially the grannies) prepares the best food you can possibly think of.

Foodies, get ready! I know how you busy you can get during this time so me and my team has prepared a list of the top 8 mouth-watering recipes you can cook under 10 minutes.

You bet! Here we go:

#1 Thai Peanut Chicken Crunch Slaw Salad

Super easy to make and super good for your health, this is one salad you can’t miss. Thai Peanut Chicken Crunch Slaw Salad is crunchy with an amazing flavor. Coleslaw and broccoli slaw are tossed with cucumbers, carrots, bell peppers and chicken and dressed with a homemade Thai Peanut Sauce — the perfect blend of non-veg and veggies.


#2 Microwave Mac ’n’ Cheese in a Mug

Now you tell me this — who doesn’t like Mac ’n’ Cheese? Everyone, right? Well, that’s what I thought. But this variety can be cookt under 10 minutes (6 to be precise). So, when you are in a hurry, remember, Microwave Mac ’n’ Cheese can save you from being hangry!


#3 Garlic Chili Popcorn

Fair warning: It’s going to get hot! Garlic Chili Popcorn isn’t what you expect. Here, you switch the normal (& boring) cooking oil with spicy chili-infused oil. Once pops, sprinkle some garlic powder with Parmesan cheese and you got an amazing snack ready to be devoured!


#4 Pork Chops with Corn Relish

This yummy pork dish take about 10 minutes to cook but stays on your taste buds for a lifetime. This pork dish comes with a relish dip which is blessed with tomato slices, parsley, thyme, vinegar, oil and last but not the least, fresh corn. Cherish it to the fullest!


#5 Quick & Easy Fried Rice

Are you a rice fan? No? Well, you will be after you try this out! Fried Rice can be made in various ways but I like the one with soy sauce and hot pepper. Takes less than 10 minutes to make, this is a perfect meal after a tiring Halloween day!


#6 Spicy Cajun Salsa Burgers

Burgers — it’s a different feeling altogether, isn’t it? I obviously love McD but how about these Spicy Cajun Salsa Burgers? Well, the first time I made & had it I went bonkers (in a good way!). The Creole seasoning combined with crushed red pepper flakes are just too much to miss. As tasty as it is, this hot baby can be prepared within 10 minutes. Yeah, no kidding!


#7 Beef Tostadas

Just thinking of this recipe makes me hungry! Lean ground beef with a whiff of chipotle sauce along with the those tostada shells is almost a miracle to the busy food lovers like me. One of the best recipes to prepare when you are in a rush to serve dinner!


#8 Cashew Chicken With Cauliflower Rice

They say, “The secret is in the sauce!”. Well, I agree; at least for this delicious dish. This super blending of veggie and meat is second to none. With an amazing sauce to stir your appetite, and a combo of cashew and boneless chicken breast pieces, this dish is not only a ‘wow’ but healthy too.


Well, that is it from my end. Now, over to you. What are your top 2 picks for 10 minutes recipes this Halloween? Pour your heart out in the comments and the top 3 will get added to this post (with due credits obviously!).
