Hungry for Snacks??


Be it kids or elders... all of us love snacks and our tummy rings its alarm at 4 pm exclusively for snacks. :) I just demand for variety as well as healthy junk always..


So now here is a variety yet similar collection of snacks for you to enjoy :)



Desi Monaco Sandwich



I just love this and there are zillion variations you can make with monaco to make it extra interesting :)

To make Filling


Ingredients:

Carrot - 1
Beetroot - 1
Onion - 1
Cucumber - 1/2
Coriander leaves
Lemon extract- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/4 tsp
Salt - for taste

Method:

Grate all the vegetables and add lemon extract, chilly powder, salt and finely chopped coriander leaves and mix well.

Now fill this in between monaco and just add a drop of tomato ketchup on top of it and serve. :)

Doesn't that look yummy... :) Happy snacking :)





Stuffed Vadam/fryums

This is an absolutely tempting one too.. Kids love these fryums. Having it just like that could be considered as junk food. But then adding such vegetables to it can turn it to be a very healthy snack. :)



Method:

Either get fried vadam/fryums or get them and fry them at home. Make the filling as said above and fill them in the rings. Serve it decoratively. In no time you would see the plate empty. :) Happy munching :)

You get longer fryums of this kind too. In that case you can slit open the fryums into two and fill them up with the vegetables.







Mixture Bhel

This is a very simple and quick snack that you can make too. Its absolutely yummy and makes mixture double interesting a snack. :)



Method:

Take a cup of mixture and mix it with vegetable filling that we made above. Since the vegetable filling contains lemon extract it would give the mixture a tangy taste. :) As a variation you can add tomato ketchup insted of the lemon extract too. :) Enjoy eating :)



Mr & Mrs. Marie Jam Sandwich :)

I generally eat marie biscuits only when my snack box is absolutely void of interesting stuff. I am not sure if this aversion came because this is a biscuit people used to eat when they are sick and get to people who are hospitalized.

I am such a Jam jam jammy fan.. So once when I tried marie with jam, I was thoroughly impressed and from then marie and jam are the best couple for me for snacking. :)



Method:

Apply the jam of your choice to your marie and enjoy eating :)

I have used the newly introduced Kissan green apple jam and home made red apple jam to make it look attractive. :)




I am sending my Desi monaco sandwich and Mr & Mrs Marie Jam Sandwich to Divya's Show me your sandwich event.
