It’s been long since I had posted, I was on vacation to India for my first cousins wedding, it was so much fun and which will be some of the most memorable moments of my life. It was all celebration, fun and good food. Also loads of foods apart from the wedding food which I gobbled like I would never get then again sigh. We go to India every three months but there are few food items I crave when I am here sigh.

DH wants his snacks most of the evenings, I try to make healthy snacks most of the time and I keep searching for healthy , this recipe is yummy and healthy because its baked , that makes it even more healthier than deep fired snacks . this is not the original recipe , the original recipe calls for jalapenos but since I dint have them , I used the long green peppers and the taste was awesome, and I will surely keep making these regularly and may be with some more add on’s , so here goes the recipe.
