5 easy to make Indian Snacks

So, staying at home calls for some food all the time. You might notice when you are at home, you eat more than you would when you are out for work.

It is a part of our nature, we love binging food when we are at home, might be one of the reasons why so many of us have been ‘healthy’ in this lockdown.

Nevertheless, many of us like to have a light evening snack to fill our tummies. It can be as light as a soup or as heavy as a dosa.

Today we will list 5 such Indian snack ideas to you that you can make it at evening time so that later you can even have lunch.

  • Bread Pizza

This is something that I have tried a million times in lockdown, I think I should make some more tonight. Bread Pizza is the easiest recipe you can make for your evening snacks. Just toast some bread and put some butter or mayonnaise on it, cut some veggies like onions, tomatoes and capsicum. Place it over the bread piece and grate cheese over it.

Microwave it or Cook it on a pan for a while. Voila! It is done, you can add some salt and pepper to make it tastier. You can serve it with ketchup if you are a big ketchup fan.

  • Sev Puri

Aaaah… this is the favourite chaat for all Maharashtrians out there. Sev Puri is an authentic chaat that you will find in every stall of Maharashtra. It is very easy to make, just make sure you have the imli chutney and green chutney at your home.

Bring in some puris from a shop, boil a potato, mash it over the puri, add some onions and tomatoes over it and then add the two chutneys. Ultimately garnish it with some Sev. 

It is marvellous.

  • Bread Pattice

Bread pattice is also a very popular Indian dish that you find in the streets. It is easy to make and at the same time easy to handle too. All you have to do is make a besan batter and dip the bread in it and deep fry it. If you are health conscious then you must avoid this but if you aren’t this is a wholesome and delicious dish for you.

  • Chana Chaat

Chana or Chole Chaat with Dahi poured all over it is a tasty snack. It is popular from northern India and people love this dish so much that they go to Delhi to taste this. Not as good as Delhi chaat but you can make a tasty chana chaat right at your home. Just boil chana and mash it with boiled potatoes, add onions, tomatoes to it and if you have kurkure even that enhances the chat and add green chutney, imli chutney and Dahi at the end. Garnish it with Sev… it is a marvellous chaat indeed!

  • Dhokla

Oh, well, the authentic Gujrati Dhokla. It is easy to make, you have to make a batter for Dhokla, it can be besan or gram flour. You can prepare the batter with other ingredients like salt, lemon juice and spread it in a container. After you spread it, put it on the steamer for 10 to 12 minutes.

You can saute the garnishing side by side. It is a bit time taking than others but the process is simple.
