Tea is often accompanied by some snack that adds to the taste of the tea. Whether you are travelling outside your city or just stepping out of office for a tea break, it doesn’t matter as long as you have your tea. Here are a few basic snacks that makes your tea, taste even better :-
Pakodas or Bhajiya
There’s nothing better than a rainy day on a cold winter morning to have a cup of tea served with hot, crispy pakodas or bhajiya. The aroma of these spiced up fried veggie dumplings made of gram flour becomes magical during monsoon season. Hearing the pitter-patter of rain-drops between the crunch of pakodas and sip of tea is an experience that goes beyond any description.
Naan Khatai - Traditonal Indian Cookie
The Naan Khatais and their aroma and the way they melt in your mouth enhances the tea drinking experience. This traditional Indian cookie comes in different versions like plain naankhatai, besan naankhatai and semolina naankhatai. These days you can even get them in flavors like orange, mango or vanilla.
In an average North-Indian household, ‘Masala Chai’ with ‘Methi matthris’ are the stuff that perfect evenings are made of. Crunchy and lightly spiced go a long way to make tea time more delightful. You can even bake them at home and even carry them along as munchies for long travels.
The Maharashtrian staple has made a special place in the hearts of all Indians. The delicious snack combination of tea and vada pav makes for perfect breakfast or high tea. Nothing trumps the appetizing combo of vada pav, chutney and chai.
