Marvels of Indian Snacks is my third book in the series on culinary items. Based on the encouragement received from my earlier two books, "Marvels of South Indian Cuisine" and "Marvels of North Indian Cuisine", I have written this book. The book has been designed to suit the needs of cross section of people across different regions, age groups and of course different occasions viz. festivals, picnics, travel etc. The book contains Sections on snacks for kids, snacks for children's lunch box, snacks for breakfast, instant snacks, snacks for guests, snacks for picnic and outings, snacks for festivals, snacks for the evenings etc. It is felt that the book would serve as an invaluable guide not only for home makers but also for amateurs in kitchen domain to prepare mouth watering snacks to the satisfaction of everyone. The items given in this book have been prepared by the author and relished by the family members, friends and relatives. I hope that you will also enjoy the snacks.
