I usually prefer to make the homemade snacks rather than buying from the stores. There are few exceptional snacks like chana jor garam, dalmuth, papdi gathiya which I get the store bought one. These are little tedious to make. But other than these, all the snacks I make at home.

Just because homemade snacks taste better and more hygienic compared to ready-one. and Most important, I know that I am using good quality oil unlike ready one.

Hubby prefers to have it with cup of hot tea.
