It has been over a year that I have made any kind of fried food at home. Except for the ocassional meal at a friends house or so, I have completely avoided fried foods since last Diwali and it wasn't as difficult or impossible as I thought it would be. But it is that time of the year again and a perfect excuse to indulge in everything I have been denying myself.
I always make Murukku and Ribon Pakoda, two of my favorite snacks. I addition to those, we have one more snack this year, these methi chips, which is really just crispy fried thepla. They are just the perfect evening snack, spicy and crunchy!
