Monsoon Munch

Is there anyone who doesn’t like raining
Obviously the answer will be “NO” i guess.
Yes from a child to  an adult all enjoy when it downpours.For a child raining is mere playing in the water with their handmade paper boat or whatever they get.For school going children raining means it's a holiday and they enjoy the day chatting,giggling with friends on line.For fathers it's their leisure time to watch their favourite news channels or red through a book. and really its the mother who struggle a lot to tackle all of them.


But off all one thing will remain common in all which is non other some hot,fried savoury snacks to munch during rain.In this post i would like to share about some of the best snack to eat when it downpours heavily.
