Evening time snacks are always a real challenge for mothers. If you give, idli or dosa or pulkas – kids won’t prefer all the time. As soon as they return from school, they want some fried or baked goodies to munch especially before starting their homework! Some sort of bribe you can say! What to do? You have to forego your calorie counting and start indulge in deep fried snacks.
