Savory Mixture

It is always easier to just buy these snacks from a store nearby. They’re cheaper and less time consuming. But festivals bring a whole new energy and even lazy people (like me :P) love donning the chef’s hat and making goodies to share with friends and family! This savory mixture features on our “Diwali Snack list” every year.

Every household makes this mixture differently. It is after all, called “mixture”. The basic idea is to mix different salty and sweet snacks and mixing with a spice to give a new savory mixture! This is how my Ma makes it and it is delicious! 😉
