Along with it, if there's a cup of tea and a plate of your favorite titbits, what a monsoon evening it would be! Sit back and relax on the decision-making while we list out snacks for you, to have with your steaming cup of Kadak Chai.

Ajwain Aur Kalonji ki Nimki

1. Ajwain Aur Kalonji ki Nimki

This crispy Bengali snack is spiced with kalonji (onion seeds) and ajwain (cumin seeds). It is challenging to stop oneself from eating too many of these simple treats, which are made with a mixture of wheat flour and maida (white flour) then fried in clarified butter. They can be prepared and stored, so you can have it anytime with tea.

Khasta Kachori

2. Khasta Kachori

Another beloved monsoon snack in Indian families is Khasta Kachori, which comes originally from North India. It is a flour-based, deep-fried fritter that is filled with moong dal, herbs, and spices. These usually come alongside tamarind chutney and salted green chilies. 

Pair Khasta Kachori with our Kaziranga- Assam Tea and let the wild flavors sink in.

Chai Samosa

3. Samosa

Samosas are a traditional Indian snack that goes excellently with the warmth of a cup of chai. It has a crispy outer layer and the inside filling is packed with a savory mixture of potatoes, peas, and spices.

We recommend you to have Samosas with our Benares Masala Chai which is sure to transport you to the vibrant streets of the city. 


4. Khakhra

The crunchy texture of Khakhra and the warm, comforting flavor of tea make for a delicious combination. The savory and salty flavor pairs well with the tea's sweetness. It can be prepared quickly and eaten indoors, making it the ideal snack for the monsoon season. 

Indulge in the Malabari notes of our Travancore Black Tea as you take a hearty bite of the Khakhra.


5. Pakoras/ Fritters

Native deep-fried Pakoras are in popular demand throughout India, especially during this season. Every foodie likes Pakoras no matter what ingredients are experimented with, whether it be potatoes, onions, cabbage, or chilies.

Dip into the lanes of Bombay as you gulp down the Pakoras, taking a sip of our Cutting Masala Chai.


Don’t feel like making your snacks at home? Head over to our Tea Room and sip on your favorite tea while trying a wide range of Pakoras and other small bites from our menu.
