This quintessential combination of a cup of piping hot tea and biscuits is enough to beat the hunger pangs. Who said a lot can happen over just coffee only? Though, there is no dearth of excuses to have a cup of tea, it’s presence is even more sought after with rains lashing.

2. Pakoda magic

A plateful of onion/potato/cauliflower pakodas with a sprinkling of chillies and ketchup to go with is a typical must-have monsoon snack.

Every bit of an Odia snack, Mudhi goes with anything and everything: gravy of mutton curry, garnishing of chopped tomatos-onions-chillis or salty/spicy mixture.

For coffee lovers, there is no better way to enjoy a mug of home-made cappuccino with chocolate chip or butter cookies, underneath a cozy blanket and a good book. Heaven? Oh yeah!

5. Momo magic

This is a so-not-an-Odia snack, but momos are definitely garnering a lot of takers (especially the youth). Fried or steamed, chicken or paneer, the best condiment with momos is the spicy sauce that accompanies it. And no one can eat just one!
