What is a SNACK?? It is a confusing word, but Chef Sanjeev Kapoor has the right answer "A snack is a Light informal meal", so does wikipedia also says. A snack can be of many varieties, tastes, the way it is cooked and eaten. In Europe Mini Pizzas, savoury pies, puffs ,burgers etc are all called snacks. India also has a very large variety with various tastes from Idly, Dosa. Uppma in the South to the famous Tikkis, Puris,, Bhajis and Sevs in the North. Eating in between meal also means having a snack. I love potatoes and tried my way of making Potato wedges try it even though there are many recipes for the same....this was done on a Tawa...............
