As a typical mangalorean i too have a habit of munching something along with tea as a evening snack. Back home in mangalore every house has a separate steel airtight container for all these snacks. But here i miss all those snacks but from a couple of years i have started making some of these snacks at home and the results where always good . Alhamdullillah.  So thought of sharing some of them in my blog .
