Indians can’t hold themselves from having quick bites and snacks at any times of the day. It's actually good according to some nutritionists and it is beneficial as well.
For most of us, tea has the least priority in the evening. Tea time is more a tradition which helps us to relax in the middle of the hectic day. It is time to unwind ourselves by spending time with our dear ones. They might be our family, friends or even colleagues. Of course, tea and delicious quick bites & snacks make a perfect duo just like us.
But the conversations get more exciting when the tea, a hot cup of coffee or cocoa is served with a scrumptious sandwich or biscuits. And when it's raining outside, nobody says NO to pakoras and puris. The list of evening time quick bites and snacks goes on and on. The snack could be baked or deep fried, light or heavy, quick, readymade or homemade, fresh or canned. But, how about some healthy evening time snacks which won’t harm your health in any way? Like, Pakoras are very tasty but they are much oily as well.
We all love Indian snacks at the tea-time at evening.
