Punjabi Mix: this is a snack my daughter and I love to eat. She went to Toronto last week for a course. She wasn’t sure where she could find it, luckily we have a great friend who helped her find it. Three large packs of it.

These are very simple food but the pleasure we find eating it is incredible.

The ingredients in it is mostly lentils, a few peanuts, cashews, some spices especially cayenne powder, it is hot and spicy, I love it.

Try it if you like spicy food.  🙂

It reminds me of the vendor who came every week with this mixture, he instantly made a song of it to attract our attention.

In Hindi or Urdu it’s called chana choor, it’s made up of lentils, nuts, some raisins and cayenne powder.

This is the song lyrics: Chana choor garam, hot and spicy snack,

barey mazedar: very tasty and he’d repeat chana choor garam

jis ko khatey hain Bengali: which is eaten by Bengalis

jis ki dhoti dheeli dhali: Whose pants are loose

I’d say this song was dedicated to us kids, so we’d run and buy some. We were the only Bengali family in our neighborhood, but he was a bit mixed up about the attire, my dad and brothers did not wear dhoti. But he rhymed his song well. 🙂
