A small serving of savoury food that is consumed between meals is known as snacks. They are available in various forms, either packaged or prepared right at home. Snacks that are made at home can include those that are made using fresh ingredients or processed ones that can be cooked instantly. Although snacks can vary from country to country, in India, there is a huge variety of scrumptious street food and fried goods that are considered as evening snacks.
These include lip smacking samosas, chaats, Pani puri and even noodles. However, it is not always possible to go out and have them whenever you are craving for a bite.
