Three Snacks To Thank India For
Whether you are watching this week’s big cricket match, or just taking a break from work or studying, there is nothing better than a quick snack to refuel your body or stave off hunger until mealtime. For most of us, our snacks are broken down into two categories, salty and sweet. And, while we all have our own personal preference, we can all agree that both are equally delicious. Keeping that in mind, what are the main snacks that you grab first when hunger sets in? Is it masala sticks for the big match, or chakri for those late night study marathons? If so, you can thank India for those as they are traditional Indian snacks eaten throughout the country. In fact, many of the foods that we eat today have origins in India. But for now, we are going to focus on Indian snacks. The top 3, to be exact.
Let’s take a look at the top 3 snacks that we all like to eat that we can thank India for:
Masala Sticks- you might think of masala sticks as those heavily scented incense sticks that many people throughout India and around the world burn. But did you know that they are also a delicious snack food? Masala sticks are crunchy, seasoned snack sticks made of wheat flour, sunflower oil and a blend of seasonings. They are available in a wide range of flavours including Chilli and Ginger, Salt and Black Pepper, Spicy, Sweet and more.
Papadum- papadum are thin, crispy, disc-shaped snacks from India which are made from peeled black gram flour and are cooked with dry heat. Papadum is available in a wide range of flavours, although they are traditionally served without any seasoning.
Para- like masala sticks, para is made using a blend of wheat flower, oil and traditional Indian spices. Para also comes in a wide range of flavours including Salt and Spicy, Sweet, Thika and more.
So, the next time you are hungry and you reach for one of these snacks, be sure to thank India for the delicious taste treat you are about to experience.
