There is a four-letter word that has dominated Indian minds and hearts since time immemorial. It is none other than 'C-H-A-I'. From morning meal to mid-meal snacking, a day without a cup of 'kadak chai' seems like a nightmare to most of us. Mention evening tea or mid-meal snacking, and our mind can't help but wander around greasy and crispy snacks like samosas, kachoris, bonda and pakodas. No doubt these Indian snacks are loved across the nation. However, consuming them every day can be really hazardous to health as these snacks are made with Maida (refined flour) and deep fried.

Having said that, here we bring you a list of 5 multigrain snacks that are a combination of both health and taste. Besides, these snacks take very less time to get prepared.
