The nippy air makes us crave delicious snacks
Potato snacks are crispy, crunchy and delicious companions for monsoon
Potato is a vegetable that is arguably one of the most-loved one. The starchy tuber is a delight to cook with, not just because it makes extremely delicious snacks and starters, but also because it tastes absolutely yummy in all forms. Come monsoons and this vegetable is going to be brought into extensive use in kitchens around the country. We all enjoy crispy, crunchy snacks during monsoons and the cravings sky-rocket when the temperatures drop and the air becomes nippy. Enjoying a plate of piping hot crispy snacks with tea or coffee during rainy mornings and evenings is one of the simple pleasures of life. There are a number of delectable potato snacks that we have in our metaphorical arsenal to make us indulge in the monsoon revelry.
Think about monsoons and dreams of crispy, spicy bhajiyas, bread pakoras, vadas, croquettes, French fries and potato wedges start floating in front of our eyes. Huddled in cosy, comfy beds or a sofa, with a plate of snacks is the best way to spend rainy days. This is why potato is the best companion for the monsoons. You can experiment as much as you like with this versatile vegetable and turn it into some really creative snacks.
YouTuber Manjula Jain of the channel Majula's Kitchen shows us how to get creative with potatoes this monsoon, with these three snack recipes:
