Bikano Kaju Mixture – Detailed Review
Bikano Kaju Mixture contains a mix of the following:
Potato flakes, cashews, melon seeds, rice flakes, moong dal, husked red lentil, sev, and green boondi.
Taste-wise, this namkeen is well salted. It has a subtle yet nice tanginess. The heat coming through the different spices is not overdone and offers a balanced spicy taste. There is a lingering flavor of clove powder. It imparts a delicious after-taste.
Here are details on the taste and texture of the different components:
Potato Flakes: We loved how thin and long these potato sticks are. These are well seasoned with salt and spice. Texture-wise, it lends a bold crunch to the mixture.
Cashews: Visually, we could see only 3 whole cashews in the pack. Maybe in a bigger pack, the number of cashews might be more. The cashews taste fresh. These are perfectly laced with spices.
Husked Red Lentils: Crisped to perfection, it adds a nice bite to the overall mixture.
Moong Dal: The moong dal does not taste bland. It is seasoned perfectly. It has a crisp texture.
The seasoning of this overall mixture is well balanced. At no point did we feel any bland taste. But there is one thing that left us disappointed. This mixture feels slightly oily.
Nonetheless, full marks for the taste and crunch of this namkeen.
- This mixture has a bold crunch!
- The salt levels are balanced.
- The cashews taste fresh.
- We loved the well-seasoned potato sticks.
- We expected the number of cashews to be more.
- This mixture feels slightly oily.
A bowl of Bikano Kaju Mixture with a cup of hot tea or coffee will make up a delicious pair. You can also top this namkeen over homemade poha or upma to add a crunch to the overall dish.
