Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram – Quick and Easy Munch / Snack


I hope the name looks funny – “Crunchy Munchy Roasted Gram”, since this snack was prepared by my hubby, during his bachelor days 😝, most commonly during the lazy times or with no pocket money, this would be their hunger food for sudden cravings with little job, easily available and less expensive ingredients. Recently when he was chatting about his good olden days in Bangalore more than 15 years ago, this resulted in the discussion of this recipe 😊.

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #176 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Fish Fry (Fish and Chips Style)


Already I have shared one fish fry recipe and this one is completely different from that because I have induced Maize flour/Cornmeal as the base of fish fry. As usual collected this from of the cookery shows in Television by Chef. KiranJethwa

Fish fry was crispy, soft and delicious with the flavor of Maize flour. The most important is very easy, simple and little time consumption recipe, even kids can prepare themselves. I have served it with tomato ketchup and Strawberry Kiwi Mojito as of Summer. Let us move on to the recipe…
