A Tea Time Indian Snack


I am not sure what exactly to call this snack but its a great tea time snack ..I don't like snacks that are hard to chew but this one has a perfect crunch not being very hard nor very soft..

Kids will love these too, pack some in their lunch box or take along with you during hiking or biking..This has gr8 shelf life too , will last for more than 2-3 weeks only if they are not gone:)
Store it in air tight container and enjoy them anytime you want.
