#FirstImpressions Of ITC’s Lebanese Falafel Kebab
There is something distinctly refreshing about all the snacks we have tried from ITC’s Masterchef series. The range is innovative and luckily goes beyond the usual aloo-based frozen foods. And they are also tasty to boot. The Lebanese Falafel Kebabs are no different.
Every bite of these Falafel Kebabs has that minty feel, which tastes fresh and authentic. These taste as good as any freshly made falafel kebabs. Falafels are meant to be a bit grainy in texture and are mildly seasoned. Classic recipes also add a lot of fresh herbs like coriander and parsley, along with spices like cumin. The ready-to-eat Falafel Kebabs by ITC also use coriander and parsley and, these clearly add authenticity to the snack.
Those who are tired of the same old range of ready-to-eat vegetarian snack foods are going to like this. This is also a good option for people looking to make quick, Mediterranean-style wraps and sandwiches at home.
