Whole Foods Chana Malai Roasted Snack is an anytime snack for those who like savory tidbits to munch upon.

We like that the list of ingredients is a short and crisp one! Often, packaged foods have long lists of ingredients where types of preservatives and additives used are more than the food ingredients! That, of course, is not the case with Whole Foods Chana Malai Roasted Snack. The snack use only flattened chana as the main ingredient, followed by rice bran oil, a healthy cooking medium.

Flavour-wise, the snack is quite delicious. It has a fresh taste and a crunch that satisfies that craving for ‘namkeen‘. The snack is seasoned well, though we thought it could with a tad bit less salt. It is a filling snack, so chances are, you won’t go through the whole pack in go.
