From mint makhana to jhal muri, check out some super quick and delicious snack recipes that you can easily prepare at home in 5 minutes.

Snacks can satisfy all of your needs, whether you've had a busy day, desires at midnight, or unexpected visitors. Snacks, you see, are enjoyed everywhere. They are available anywhere you go, whether you're in a foreign country, a metropolis, or a private residence. Nutritionists advise eating small meals throughout the day rather than bingeing on the entire pantry at once. Our rumbling stomachs often signal the need for a snack, yet our busy schedules prevent us from making time for one. It is usually a better idea to cook healthy snacks at home with wholesome components rather than nibbling on premade and unhealthy packed snacks.
