Hi all, happy to see you all a very long time of gap. Vacation to my native (chennai) and personal reasons, not able to post my recipes. So, here it’s snack time and we are having hot hot dates tempuras…

Let me share with you a very simple chai time snack. Chopped dates dunk into a flour paste and deep fried… is just an awesome combination with tea for any evening. This is one among the popular snacks in Kerala. I never knew about this recipe until i taste it from one of my friends family.  Got this recipe and tried out and I just fell in love with this appetizer in my first trial itself.

Do try it out & let me know how much you enjoyed……
