For Gujaratis, Diwali is incomplete without Farsi Puri. This deep-fried dry snack has evergreen fanfare, and you will understand why if you just try it once. It is made with common ingredients and is easy to make, but it has a melt-in-the-mouth texture because of the addition of semolina and ghee to the plain flour dough, and a lingering flavour contributed by black pepper.

Crisp and flavourful Banana Pepper Wafers taste best when made the traditional way! Here, salt is added to the oil to ensure even coating on all the wafers. But, take care to reduce the flame and then add the salt-water mixture. Move away as soon as you add it, since the oil might splutter. Likewise, we would advice slicing the bananas directly into the oil, as done traditionally. If you are afraid to do so, you might slice them onto a thin muslin cloth or butter paper and then drop them in batches into the oil, but this will be cumbersome as the chips will stick to each other!

We have heard repeatedly that flaxseeds are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and are an essential food especially for vegetarians. But, many of us are at a loss of interesting ways to include it in our diet.

This is one snack that will be there in most South Indian houses on almost all days. Indeed, this crunchy delicacy made with rice and urad dal flours is an exciting treat that will be loved by all, especially thanks to the peppy aroma and flavour imparted by sesame and asafoetida. Before you start frying the Murukku, put a small bit of the dough into the oil. If it floats up immediately, it means the oil is hot enough. Now, you can bring down the flame level, press out the Murukku and allow it to fry slowly till completely cooked inside. When the sizzling sound of the oil stops, it means your Murukku is completely cooked and you can take it out. Make a large batch of this and store it in an air-tight container, to send as a short-eat in your kids' tiffin box, or to munch on in the evenings.
