Indian cuisine is a Pandora box of so many different foods with different flavours, which makes it possible for us to try out all kinds of dishes. Indian snacks alone offer a range of options to choose from. Veg or non-veg, fried or steamed, there is a lot to explore. But our desi palate is fully satisfied with only some of the varieties which include tandoori snacks. The aroma of fresh tandoor wafting through the air draws you in instantly. Snacks made in a tandoor burst with flavours and juices, and make for the perfect appetiser in any get-together.
