The most delicious food of every party is usually the appetisers that are consumed with drinks, before one indulges in main-course. These tasty appetisers are also called as chakna. The forever debate of whether chakna should be eaten by non-drinkers or not, still remains a heated topic in party circles. However, jokes aside, chakna is usually the most consumed food in every party as it’s portion is smaller than the rest of the meal-courses. As a result, at the end of every party, the host is usually running out of these snacks. Chips are a great snack when it comes to being relished along with alcoholic beverages. However the regular potato chips could seem a tad boring at parties. This is why you need to give the normal potato chips a culinary twist.
