Sweet and Salty Tortilla Snack
Some like it sweet & some like it savory so here’s something to please both palates. A perfect tea-time snack or a quick snack for a car journey or an unexpected guest – this recipe is a keeper not just for its ease, but for its melt in the mouth yumminess, not to mention its addictive qualities.  But this is pretty sinful since I take a 98% fat free tortilla and deep fry them to make these a deadly snack L sorry! Flouting blog ground rules once again, but you gotta have some sinful food in order to better appreciate the healthful ones, agreed?
Tortilla Treats

This is a wonderful snack idea, at least the savory ones, I got from my friend Rajindra in Ottawa, Canada. She did not jazz it up much, but left it nicely salted, so that her little ones could enjoy them as well.When my husband and I were first married, R and her hubby who was my hubby’s friend opened their hearts and homes to us almost every weekend and she would whip up these or some garlicky masala popcorn with a steaming cuppa! Miss you guys!

  7. I love to binge on fried treat once a while…don't eat much as my ever increasing waistline doesn't permit me :) but these small bites looks so addictive…I bet I can finish off the full bowl in one sitting. My daughter Nandini is too fond of fried goodies and she will be very happy if I made some for her.

    This reminds me of my grandma..she used to deep fry the left over chapati pieces and sprinkle masalas on top.
