BM # 48 Week 4 Day 1
For this week I have chosen the theme Naashta Time. The word Naashta literally means breakfast in India. One also refers to Naashta as an evening snack. So when we talk of Naashta, we can indulge into so many varieties. It could be light, could be heavy. Freshly made hot Idlis, Dhoklas, Chole Kulche, or Vada Pav Paani, Puri...to a Sandwich, the list is endless. It could also include longer shelf life snacks like Sev, Bhakarwadi or some namkeens. A cup of tea for the grown ups, juice or milk for the younger kids could complete the snack. Inspite of such a huge variety, yet we are lost as to what to serve. Well this week I have three super recipes, which could be served as a snack, so do come back again to check some more Snacks.
For today I have some crackers. These are whole wheat crackers, quick , simple to make and yet delicious. You have the choice to deep fry or bake these. I baked them.these could be served with any chutney, or relished as it is. I served these with mango chutney for a sham ka naashta, which is an evening snack.

Place the squares on un-greased baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the crackers are crisp.
