Ready To Eat Indian Food

Chitale Bandhu Potato Chivda

Chitale Bandhu Potato ChivdaPotato Chivda, popularly known as upvasacha (fasting) chivda in Maharashtra and Pharali Chivda in Gujarat. This is served as Tea time snacks. Its a common feature at typical maharashtrian food shops in Maharashtra. It is sweet, salty and slightly spicy mixture of fried shredded potato, cashews,  dry coconut, raisins, sugar, salt and chillies. I just loved this chivda because it is less sweet compared to the fresh varieties available in stores in India. Though it is deep fried, you don't feel oily while eating it.

Deep - Potato and Pea Samosa

Deep - Potato and Pea Samosa

Samosas are my all time favorite. Hot samosas, green & sweet chutney and a cup of tea, thats my ritual on many Saturday evenings. But when it come to kids, samosas are complete no for them. My elder one keeps complaining that they are too  spicy. Then I found these Deep Potato and Pea Samosas. They are small in size compared to their punjabi samosas. They are less spicy and work perfectly well with the kids. As per the instructions, you can either deep fry them or bake. I prefer to bake them. They are not very oily. Believe me kids love these samosas with tomato sauce.

It you want your kids to eat samosas, go for it.

Chai Time Toast / Tea Rusk

Tea RuskDiet food has never tasted better. While technically its not that, at 40 calories a piece, you cannot go wrong. I like the mildly sweet taste and toasty aroma. Its a perfect afternoon snack with your cuppa tea or coffee. There is a whole wheat version also available but I prefer the regular one.
 
Verdict; Buy

Nanak Khoa or Mava

nanak KhoaI had been looking for good Khoa for a long time and finally found this. Its amazing how many delicacies you can make with a product like this including ABC Halwa  and Khava-Besan Roti (Hyperlink to article). Stays well for a long time in freezer or refrigerator.

Deep Pakora

Deep PakoraRainy days always make me crave bhajis and pakodas. But after a long day at work, when I have neither the energy nor the time to make them from scratch, these come in vey handy. Open the pack, heat and eat! I love both the Onion and Spinach verions. Also surprisingly, they aren't as greasy as one would think.
