If you are among those who are still working from home, you would perhaps relate to mid-day snack cravings as you do your day’s job. You may rely on tidbits to satiate your hunger pangs, but how about making a simple but healthy dip for snack time instead of having the traditional bhujiyas or packaged foods?
Shilpa Shetty recently shared a curried mushroom dip recipe that you can have with your favourite crackers. “It’s a delicious, nutritious, and filling snack that will please your taste buds. It’s a simple, easy, and quick recipe. Crackers go really well with this dip. Before you cook them, make sure you clean the mushrooms well,” the actor wrote on Instagram. Take a look at the recipe:
