Yummy Snacks In Five Minutes
Delightful 5-Minute Snacks
Snacks, snacks, snacks – they seem to take up more of our time than the actual meals! It is impossible not to snack when you are hungry in between meals. But fortunately, you have a choice – you can either succumb to the temptation of store-bought snacks, or you can spare a moment’s thought and five minutes’ time to make your own tasty snacks at home!
If you stock your refrigerator wisely, with ingredients like bread, salad veggies, some common sauces and chutneys, you can easily put together a snack within minutes. This article proves the fact with 10 yummy recipes that can be cooked in five minutes or less. Add to this a couple of minutes of preparation time to wash and chop the veggies. That’s all that stands between you and a sumptuous snack!
Salads, sandwiches and smoothies are the ultimate choice when it comes to quick snacks! They hardly require any cooking. All you need to do is assemble or blend the ingredients together. And, they give you an opportunity to make good use of the season’s best veggies and fruits. The Quick Coleslaw Sandwich, the Cheese-N-Celery Sandwiches and the Blueberry Raspberry Strawberry Smoothie are good examples.
When you yearn for something more chatpata, go for the Healthy Khakhra Chivda, or the innovative Quick Bread Snack, which is an upma-like dish made of crumbled bread. The Spicy Corn Chaat Recipe is a yummy street food, which you can fix quickly at home too. All-time favourites like the Sevaiyan Upma are always ready to come to the rescue, even when you have only minimal ingredients at home!
If you wish for a taste of international cuisine, you can try your hand at making the Chilli Garlic Noodles or Quick Cheese Fondue. Or go for a fusion dish that forays into the realm of your wildest imagination. The Pizza Khichu is one such dish! The traditional Gujarati snack, rice flour khichu, is uniquely flavoured with pizza sauce and mixed herbs, garnished with cheese and served with a drizzling of olive oil. So easy to make but absolutely, unimaginably exotic, everybody will fall in love with this snack.
