Jain Dry-Snacks

Roasted MakhanaRoasted Makhana

Tea-time is incomplete without crunchy snacks. Dry snacks are something you can make in bulk and store in air-tight container. The conventional method of deep-frying can be replaced with healthy cooking methods like baking. Sev, Ganthia, Fafda are almost similar because they are made with besan, just the shape differs. You can perk up the taste with the addition of vegetable puree or spices to make Masala Sev, Teekha Gathiya etc. This sev is even used to make a popular Jain subzi Rasawala Sev Tameta.

Makhana/ Lotus seeds are another light and healthy snack. You can roast them in an array of spices to make varieties of Jain snacks like the Masala Makhana, Herbed Makhanas or simple Roasted Makhana. Other dry-snacks which you can make are Corn Flakes Chivda, Murukku.

The steamed dhokla is a popular Gujarati breakfast. They are not only healthy but also, tasty. You can make a wide range of dhoklas using different combinations of dals and vegetables. My favorite dhokla recipes are Nylon Khaman Dhokla and Mag Ni Dal Na Dhokla. They taste amazing with spicy coriander chutney and sweet imli chutney. Also, boiled sweet corn tossed in Indian spices to make the Masala Corn is a quick and filling snack.

For cheese lovers, starters like Chilli- Cheese Toast and Chillies Stuffed with Paneer and Cheese are a must try. The gooey cheese is an irresistible treat that will be loved by both kids and adults.
