Mirch Masala Sandwich Bhakarwadi: Indian wheat sandwich snack that is a little bit spicy but also have an unexpected sweetness, which I believe comes from dried mango powder. The square crackers have a bit of a scalloped edge and irregular dotted exterior; they taste fried, rather than baked. In particular, the sandwich ends are pretty dense and remind me a bit of fried wontons strips, which often taste of the oil they're cooked in. I find them to be not quite savory or sweet enough, and the combination of tamarind and chi... (read more) 2.0/5.0

Kurkure Chilli Chatka: I was kindly sent a package of Indian snacks to review and started with this bag of familiar fried corn crunchies (like Cheetos) with an unfamiliar flavor or Chilli Chatka, containing a powdered coating combining a range of spices like garlic and chili powder, cumin, and fenugreek.

Saffron Road Bombay spice crunchy chickpeas: Fried chickpeas tossed with a dry savory spice mixture (it’s proprietary and thus not listed in the ingredients, but my best guess is garam masala, turmeric, cumin, ginger, and cinnamon). A bit awkward to eat because they coat your hands. The flavor was a bit too strong for me, so I never wanted to eat more than a handful. 3.0/5.0

Bandar Tikka Masala Naan Chips: A spiced take on pita chips, these parallelogram-shaped baked chips have a hearty crunch and warming blend of spices both savory and sweet. It doesn't have the meaty flavor I typically associate with the entree version of tikka masla, but it has all the same spices, including turmeric, onion powder, and garlic powder. The predominant aftertaste is cinnamon. An interesting snack, but probably would not purchase again. 3.0/5.0

NFI curry flavored Mr. Krisps potato chips: Super crispy potato chips with a slight spiced flavor (though they are not spicy). Good level of seasoning. Despite the corn-shaped / Quaker-dressed mascot, this snack resembles neither. From India. 3.0/5.0
