When its time for snacks –
It is better to munch on grapes, donuts,
Carrot sticks, roasted unsalted peanuts,
Raw cashew, almond, pistachio nuts!
Hot Indian lentil mix, nachos with cheese,
Fresh apple, sugar cane, pumpkin seeds,
Dates, fried eggplant, spicy potato treats,
French fries, samosa, roll, pakora, biscuits!
Goal-gappa+, spicy puffed rice or chickpeas,
Coconut ball, falafel, peanuts with rice crisp,
Halwa*, chocolate, candies and cookies
Cream crackers with Philly cheese –
Than carbonated drinks and potato chips!
*Goal-gappa – Small hard shell puri-like made of cream of wheat and flower, served with potato and chick peas, filled in spicy tamarind water;
*Halwa – Cream of wheat cooked with sugar, cashew, resins, and ghee;
