December 02, 2023 (IANSlife) Snacking is not just about satisfying hunger between meals; it is also about enjoying flavors, socializing, and exploring a diverse range of tastes. Furthermore, in India, snacks hold significance across various moments, forging deeper connections among Indians.
Indians share an enduring affection for snacks, indulging in a variety that spans from the crispy samosas and aloo bhujiyas to flavorful masala papads, nuggets, and fries.
These delectable treats have seamlessly integrated into the fabric of Indian culinary culture, becoming an indispensable part of daily life. Moreover, being a snacking nation with an ancient snacking culture that has evolved because of its unique geography, climate, and history, India has a vibrant segment of snack offerings.
Providing an interesting and comprehensive analysis of the evolving culinary landscape, showcasing Indian snacks and Indian love for snacks, Godrej Food Trends Report 2023 mentions some of the iconic snacks of India like Samosa, Vadapav, Idli, Kabab, Momos, Litti, Chow Mein, and Pav Bhaji.
Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal, Managing Director, a Perfect Bite Consulting and Curating Editor of the annual Godrej Foods Trends Report says, “Indian snacks are more than just food. They are a way for us to express our love of spices, our nostalgia for childhood, and our joy of community. When we eat Indian snacks, we are not just satisfying our hunger, but also celebrating our culture and our shared heritage. As I have said in the 2023 edition of the report, with the pandemic having impacted how we consume food, today, it is all about the food of our ancestors, nostalgia-driven dishes, and local, regional foods of India. Health has become the cornerstone of all our food-related decisions, but we Indians still love to snack especially Vada Pav or Samosa."
