Snacks, called tiffin in the South, occupy a very special place in our cooking. Crunchy, soft, spicy, sweet and hot, they are steamed, shallow fried or deep fried. Serve them as teatime treats or along with a meal. More often than not they are a complete meal in themselves. We have a wide variety of snacks, ranging from small eats to heavy snacks which can easily be substitued for a meal. In India, any time is snack/tiffin time.
