When it rains, snack on these | 9 monsoon delights to try

It's probably the waking dream of every working personnel during the monsoon season to just throw the blanket back on and sleep till late evening listening to the rhythmic drizzles outside. The only impetus to step away from the bed is to get some piping hot tea and of course, the monsoon munchies. Here are 9 of the most sought after snacks to chew on while the rain makes for an absolute splash outside!

Spinach cutlet | Video

spinach-cutlet

Cutlets are trending this season. Ever tried making them with spinach? Watch the video to see how the innate goodness of the leafy vegetable lends its flavour as an add on to the crunchy cutlet—sounds as inviting as the sound of rain!

Chicken stick with cheese and mushroom

Chicken Stick with Cheese and Mushroom

That sure is a long name for a snack, so let's just rechristen it as chicken mushroom treat. And as you say it aloud, do you see the little ones' ears perking up? This snack very spontaneously draws your children to the kitchen area, for it has chicken, cheese and mushroom. What's not to love!

Uzhunnuvada

masala-vada

Ah, this makes a typical rainy day all the more dreamy. Imagine this—a drizzly evening; on the table, there's a hot cup of cardamom tea along with crispy and spongy medu vadas accompanied by green coconut chutney. It won't be long before you'd snap out of that dream, grab those spatulas and get crackin' on those lovely vadas!

Lady's finger fry

ladys-finger-fry

Want to add some heat to your lunch? An easily made lady's finger fry that has a zesty coating of spices and gram flour deep fried in hot oil. Just the perfect add on to your mid-day meal.

Sausage pakora

Sausage Pakora

Agreed, there are no contenders worthy of even standing upright in front of the King of monsoon munchies, the onion pakora. However, let's push the case of the sausage pakoras ever so mildly, prodding you to try it this time. We guarantee an entirely different experience.

Fried idli

Fried Idli

This isn't a time to call out to idli, you might think. They aren't as crunchy a treat befitting the ongoing monsoon season, but these fried little pieces of idli made for such an irresistible dish, we wanted you to try it! Also, you can put those breakfast buddies to good use in the evening.

Aloo paratha

aloo-paratha

It's just not fair that aloo parathas taste twice as good especially when the skies guarantee a downpour. A layer of spicy potato filling that hides inside the hot paratha that invites a dollop of butter to melt on top of it. This spells divine.

Bread mukki porichathu

Bread Mukki Porichathu (Bread Fingers)

The easiest of all, this 'french toast' version from northern Kerala makes for a delightful snack, and you don't have to wait for the rains for this one simply because it's just too attractive a nosh to miss out on. Of course, the rainier the better!

Mulaku bajji

mulaku-bajji-2

Walking by all those wayside kiosks that mushroom during rainy seasons, a strong whiff of the chillies leaves you flattered. Game to make some of those mouth-watering chilli bajjis in your own kitchen?
