Let's agree, we all eagerly await the arrival of 4 pm. It's the time when you can sit back and unwind after finishing all of the housework, preparing meals, and almost finishing the office work. What could possibly be a better way to unwind than drinking some chai? A cup of kadak chai instantly uplifts our mood and energises us. However, I believe that a cup of chai is never truly complete without some delicious snacks, no matter how good it may be. You can have something as simple as biscuits or namkeen, or as elaborate as samosas, pakodas and kachoris with your chai; any treat with chai tastes delicious, nothing else! However, if you regularly eat these snacks, it may be detrimental to your health, especially if you're trying to lose weight. So, what should you do now? Omit the teatime snacks? Look for healthier alternatives instead. Having said that, here we bring you some low-calorie puffed rice (murmura) snacks to pair with your evening tea. Take a look.
