Crunchy Potato Peanut snack

My mother believed in fasting. It was fascinating how she kept tabs on the lunar calendar via an almanac (also called a panchang) that gave you all the dates for any function or ceremony that the gods required you to do! Her fasts for Ganpati bappa were a source of great delight to us as we got to eat all the yummy foods that these fasts demanded. Why is fasting food so delicious?

This Crunchy Potato Peanut snack ( also called 'Batatyachi Upasachi bhaji' was a great hit and we waited for the two Chathurthis of the month to arrive!
