As a college student, the night starts at 10 pm, and before you know it, it’s 2 am and you’re hungry again. Now, for the kids living at home – they’re continuously getting scolded for eating junk food in the “middle of the night”. Well, not to worry, because now you can eat without getting caught.

Thanks to spoons, kulfis in matkas (or cups) are just as easy to eat without getting it all over your lips (and hands too if it’s melting…).

2. Gol Gappas’s Paani

Gol gappas are generally assumed to be messy (and I’m not saying that they’re not), but in case you’re craving something spicy, this is the thing to drink. With easy-to-make packets available in the market, this is perfect for a midnight snack.

Step 1: Check your fridge for any paranthas left over from dinner.
Step 2: Roll one up in your hand.
Step 3: Sneak back into your room like nothing just happened.

Remember that packet of chips sitting in your college bag from lunch? This is the time to open it up.

6. Chilli Potatoes

If you’re in the mood of something spicy, this is the dish for you. All you need are potato wedges, the assorted sauces available in your fridge, your imagination, and merely 5 minutes to put up a dish.

7. French Fries


Long live frozen foods!

8. Pakoras

Agreed – pakoras are overflowing with calories, but you’re allowed a cheat day when you’re working so hard to not get scolded, right? I mean, that must burn at least 250 calories (I hope!).

If you’ve tried marshmallows before, you know this is heaven.

With a variety to choose from, namkeen is a food item that is available on the go (and in almost every kitchen).

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think every sweet lover is going to run down to the nearest bakery to get their hands on a box for tonight’s snack.

13. Momos

Generally, momos fit right into your mouth, but if not, use a fork to split it into smaller pieces. All you need to do is convince your mom to order a lot of them for an evening snack so that there are bound to be leftovers, and eat away.
