Snacking is an essential part of Indian culture. We get intoxicated with our evening tea just thinking about breakfast. A quick and tasty breakfast revives us, but we get so caught up in daily activities that we neglect ourselves and our needs.
People’s awareness of self-care has increased in recent years, so we are now focusing not only on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but also on self-care. After all, we are what we eat, and making wise choices about snacking becomes an important part of our self-care routines.
Samosas, pakodas and chaats top the list of “India’s favorite snacks”, but there are many nutritious snacking options that are equally tempting.
Evening snack recipes made from oats are gaining popularity due to their nutritional properties. It is rich in protein, fiber and iron.
