Jar Snacks, Indian Jar Snack Recipes
Wouldn’t life be so, so, so boring without jar snacks? Imagine having your evening cup of coffee or tea every day without any accompaniments! Crunchy-munchy jar snacks add lot of excitement to our day. They can always be relied upon to perk up your tea-time even on days when you do not have time to prepare any fresh snacks. Indian Jar snacks also come to the rescue when hunger suddenly strikes without warning between meals or as soon as you come back from work in the evening. Many of the jar snacks can also be packed in your kid’s tiffin dabba for short break in tupperware. You can also carry some in your handbag to work or store it in a mason jar!
Homemade Jar snacks can be sweet like Shakarpara and Caramel Popcorn, or appetizingly spicy like the Corn Flakes Chivda or Aloo Bhujia. Many of them are also regional specialties like the Ribbon Sev of South India or the Mini Bhakarwadi from Maharashtra. For health-conscious people, there are also options like the Baked Oats Puri or Bajra Vadi, which help you top up on your nutrients while also enjoying a tasty, crispy snack! Snacks from the West like Potato Wafers are also very popular in India, amongst young and old. And with a little spark of innovation, we have also come up with yummy new snacks like the Dry Pasta Jar Snack.
Indian Savoury Jar Snack Recipes
Bhakarwadi is one of the most famous Maharashtrain dry jar snacks. In the regions of Kerala and Tamil Nadu where yellow bananas are easily available, crispy Yellow Banana Chips are made. Gujaratis love their deep fried Farsi Puri. One snack that will be in most South Indian homes and also a great tiffin food for kids is Murukku. Then there is the Whole Wheat Flour Chakli jar snack.
After preparing your jar snack recipes, always remember to cool them completely before storing, otherwise, they will ‘sweat’ and become soggy! Take care to store in a truly airtight container, and keep the jar well lidded at all times. If handled properly, they will last for a week or more.
Indeed, jar snacks are a pleasant addition to any day. It is fun to munch on a jar snack when chatting with friends. And, jar snacks themselves will keep you company when you are alone – with their crisp, fun-packed taste and texture, they are sure to reboot your day. However, always remember to have them in moderation, especially when deep-fried. I have my office filled with healthy snack jars.
