Somehow, cone-shaped snacks catch everybody’s fancy. It is probably because the cones give you a sneak-peek into what is inside, while snugly holding on to the contents!

These Crispy Cones Stuffed with Potatoes are so enticing to behold, and so appetising with the aroma of cumin and nigella seeds that you cannot help drooling. The potato stuffing is absolutely awesome, with a balanced flavour that has a bit of tang and a bit of spice too. The dainty cones that hold this stuffing are really crisp, and complement the succulent mouth-feel of the stuffing very well indeed.

It takes a bit of practice and patience to make these cones, but you will soon get the hang of it. Enjoy as an evening tea snack with a cup of hot Elaichi Tea , also makes an exciting addition to your starters platter during special occasions and parties.
