Dry snacks such as mixtures and chips are great ways to supplement your cravings. 

Here are six creative snacks that you can try when you are awake at 2:00 am wondering what to eat. Whatever the reason,  be it college studies or late night shifts, these snacks will be handy for one to devour.

6 No-Fire Snacks To Try

1. Leftover Roti And Sabji Frankie

Take a leftover roti and spread some leftover sabji on it. Kudos if it is still hot. Then, add some chopped onions, tomatoes, and green chillies for extra flavour. Roll it up tightly like a wrap and enjoy a flavorful Frankie. It's a great late-night snack as it's quick to assemble, uses leftovers efficiently, and satisfies hunger. To make it quiet, ensure to pre-chop the veggies. 

2. Cold Sandwich 

Take two slices of bread and spread a layer of mayonnaise on each slice. Place thinly sliced tomatoes and cucumbers on one slice. Sprinkle a pinch of salt for seasoning, then close the sandwich with the other slice of bread. This sandwich is perfect for late-night cravings as it's refreshing, requires no cooking, and the combination of veggies and mayo provides a satisfying texture.

3. Kurkure Chaat 

Take a packet of Kurkure and crush the contents slightly while keeping it in the packet. Open the packet and add chopped onions, tomatoes, green chillies, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Shake the packet gently to mix the ingredients well. Shake it under your blankets to avoid noise. Enjoy it straight from the packet. Also, crush the Kurkure quietly by pressing it against a flat surface to eliminate more noise. 

4. Dahi Fruit Chaat

Use a spoon to mix the ingredients quietly. Don't shake the container to avoid extra noise.

This snack is perfect for late nights as it's protein-rich, sweet, and requires minimal preparation effort. Boil the eggs beforehand and keep them in the refrigerator. Use a butter knife to spread the jam without breaking it. 

6. Instant Custard

Take half a bowl of milk, add some sugar, and add your favourite scoop of ice cream. Mix both quietly until the texture is creamy. Add nuts, chocolate chips, or fruit slices. Enjoy the creamy custard dessert as a late-night treat. This dessert is perfect for late nights as it's comforting, creamy, and customizable with various toppings. Best for people craving sweets.
