Let’s see them one by one: -
Pakoras are fried snacks (“fritters”) originated in India, and also known as “Bhajiyas” in southern parts of the country. There are Pakoras of Spinach, Onion, Potatoes, Paneer, and Chilli Pepper. Pakoras are prepared by dipping gram flour coated veggies into the hot oil. They are served with Green Chutney which is prepared from tamarind and mint.
People also like eating them with their favourite hot drinks such as Chai/Coffee.
Jalebi is an Arab & Indian sweet snack popular all over India, especially in the rainy and cold weathers. Jalebis are prepared by deep frying refined flour (maida) batter in circular shapes and then dipping them into a sweet sugary syrup for few minutes. They are normally served with curd or “rabri”. Individuals of all ages love savouring jalebis in monsoon.
If you go out on roads after rain showers in Northern India, you can see a roadside vendor making Roasted Charcoal Corn or “Bhutta”. “Bhuttas” are served with lemon and spices, which makes the taste of “Bhutta” even more amazing.
Seriously, Bread Pakora deserves its mention in this list, and not mixed with other Veg Pakoras. The combination of Bread Pakora & Chai is loved by everyone in office parties during monsoon.
Samosa & Kachori
Samosa & Kachori are also famous during the rainy season because of their crunchy outsides and tasty stuffing insides. Many types of Samosas and Kachoris vary according to regions.
They are not exactly snacks; however, Chai/Coffee is a partner of many of them as stated above. Chai-Pakora is the number one pick for our grandparents and older generation during the rainy season. Sometimes, it can only be tea while enjoying monsoon out of the window.
