The evenings are just not complete without a plate of crispy snacks accompanying the steaming cup of tea. The children come home to a snack craving after a long day at the school while the adults look for some much-needed company to share a cup of tea and snacks and that is exactly where simple no hassle recipes like the ones we’ll tell you about will come and save your day.
The classic Aloo Pakode:
The golden fried aloo pakode is probably the best evening snack one can think of. If you’re a big fan of potatoes, there’s good news for you. All you have to do is add gram and rice flour with the basic spices to get this recipe started.
Deep fried Poha Balls:
Poha is a popular Indian breakfast dish that breaks all its boundaries to deliver us with mouth-watering evening snacks like the golden fried crispy poha balls. This not only savors the taste buds but is also a healthy option for an evening snack. You should start by throwing all the ingredients along with the poha (flattened rice) into a mixing bowl and the recipe from there onwards is pretty simple.
Stuffed fried mushrooms:
Here’s a much-needed change of taste buds from the usual everyday evening snack. All you need is some finely mashed potatoes sprinkled in spices, a smooth batter, and some mushrooms to start this recipe with. However, make sure you remove the mushroom stems properly.
Instant garlic bread:
This is one of the easiest and quickest evening snacks you could ask for. Garlic breads are the lifeline of side dishes and now you can make it instantly within 2 minutes. Just add oregano, pepper, salt, and chopped garlic to melted butter and apply it to the bread. Now to finish the recipe, lightly fry the bread and you’re all set to go.
Grilled sandwich with a hint of tandoori:
A simple grilled sandwich never hurt anyone, especially during the classic evening ‘chai time’. However, for this, you would need mayo and tandoori sauce along with ingredients like cottage cheese, diced vegetables, and spices. You can even use the stove to grill your sandwich if you don’t have a griller.
Egg scramble with a side of toast:
If you’re browsing for healthy snack options this is the one for you. A classic egg scramble with crispy toasted bread is a power combo, especially if you have spices like oregano or peri peri with you. However, the recipe can still be a major hit without the spices.
Looking for ways to make use of the leftover poha from today’s breakfast. How about some poha Tikki in the evening to soothe your taste buds? For this recipe, you would need a boiled potato mashed and seasoned along with some mango powder, coriander leaves, onion and of course cooked poha. Mash everything into a ball and lightly fry it in a pan and voila! Poha Tikki within 10 minutes.
