Monsoon and crispy snacks go hand in hand. Without one, the other feels incomplete. And if you're in a situation where it's raining outside during tea time, it becomes even more challenging to resist these crispy food cravings.

From pakodas and kebabs to spring rolls and more, there are a plethora of kurkure snacks that make for a perfect companion along with our evening cup of chai. If you've been craving some too and looking for something interesting to cook, look no further than these lip-smacking snacks:
