Bengali snacks, Bengali dry, healthy snacks
Bengali snacks, Bengali dry snacks. Snacks are had in the evening with tea, or any time during the day to kill a sudden hunger pang. Like most others, Bengali cuisine too has two types of snacks – freshly prepared ones as well as jar snacks. This section has a range of must-try snacks like the Jowar Til Nimki and Meva Moodi.
Paneer Bhapa is a unique snack, which gets an inimitable flavour by virtue of being cooked inside banana leaf pockets. Cottage cheese that has been marinated in lemon juice is coated with a tongue-tickling masala of coconut and mustard, wrapped in banana leaves and cooked for a few minutes till the flavours fuse.
Meva Moodi snack is crunchy salted dry fruits and puffed rice coated with melted jaggery tossed in pure desi ghee. Crisp and chewy, this is best savoured with your fingers while it is still warm. Meva Moodi snack derives its origin from the streets of Calcutta. Meethi moodi essentially means sweetened puffed rice or mamra. A special kind of jaggery called Nalini Gur is used for it.
