Indian vegetarian rainy day snacks to enjoy the monsoon season.

The cool breeze and lush greenery in the monsoon is something I just love and the foodie monster gets activated. Rainy season brings so much relief from the itching summer.

Rainy day snacks, are mandatory if only weather gives sign of rain. I am sharing my favorite 5 snacks.

1. Mix plate of Pakoade

Pakore is almost every family’s favorite, and it’s mandatory to be severed as one of the best rainy day snack when it dizzling.

I usually love to have mix different vegetable pakorades like onion, chillie, potatoes, even brinjal, spinach and other variety. My kids love to have paneer pakorade and cauliflower pakorade.

Dipped with gram flour batter with spices like red chili powder, salt, amchur(Dry mango), and dhaniya powder this is the best companion of rain.

2. Chaat

Nothing can beat yummy and hot chaat during the rainy season. I love aalo tikki and my husband prefer matar chaat. Being from the city of nawabs, Lucknow I love basket chaat a lot. Rainy day snacks must be added to Chaat.

Basket chaat, is most famous in Lucknow and it’s filling. They filled the full basket with different tikkis and chaat which is just mouthwatering, I can bet you can’t finish that alone.

Next time if you are in Lucknow don’t forget to try basket chaat and thank me later.

3. Arbi ke pakode

This is one recipe of my mother that I love from the core of my heart and can have any time during the rainy season.. It is crispy and with the blend of flavors, it tastes outstanding.
