    33K  Views

    If you spend a good part of your week at home and eating snacks like there's no tomorrow (let's be honest, tomorrow never came). Of course getting chips, veggies, biscuits, crackers, and the like is easy, but what about dip? Or maybe you want to marinate your meat or enjoy a basic roll with your elevated palate, but pickles and ketchup just won't do. Don’t worry, there’s a range of options available, and you don’t need to head to your favourite restaurant for their secret recipe. Here’s our pick.

    Yummus

    Yummus

    Available Online

    Hummus is one of the most popular and versatile dips there is, and is pretty much top level snack accompaniment. Spicy chips? Yes. Veggies? Yum! Bread and/or rotis? Sure why not, with some veggies. Yummus should have you covered with their range. Choose from plain, spinach, beetroot, and roasted bell pepper flavours among others and enjoy! They even have rather unique options like sweet potato and avocado. The best part is that you can order great pita and lavash too!

    Pair them up with these homemade, homegrown snack brands, right here on LBB.

    Kalchi

Basically curries and dips (not for chips, but for naan), choose from comforting options like the Chettinad Chicken spread or Dal Makhani spread for quick meals. Dips include Achari, and Chilli Garlic. If nothing, you can use it to add flavour to your home cooking with Kalchi


    Happy Healthy Me

    If you eat exclusively organic, and are moving to a vegan or keto diet, Happy Healthy Me’s range of nut butters have you covered. Crunchy, and creamy peanut butters, coconut butter, almond butter are all available. And they have a great Tahini too, for all of you making hummus at home.

    Too Much Chutney

    We’ll start with saying that there’s no such thing such as too much chutney, and this brand fully understands that. Your dosa (idli, upma, puri, rice, neer dosa, and anything else) needs an accomplice that elevates it and at least one of the 22 chutneys will help. From usuals like coconut, mint, and tomato to flavours like brinjal, radish, and chicken, your tiffin and snacks will never be boring again. You know, our lazy 2020 breakfasts usually featured a chutney (or few) from here.

They have it. Need some heat for your Asian stir fry? Order their Sriracha and you’re golden. If it’s Barbeque sauce you seek, at their website you shall find. And if you’re looking to make anything just spicy and go back to a sauce that you think fixes everything - get their peri peri sauce.
