This video is about a very famous evening time snack from south India called Bangla. It’s a typical village grandmother style, household dish. Which only requires two major ingredients. It doesn’t need any accompaniment because it’s very tasty by it’s self. A Bangla is the original name for a palace, this snack was maybe prepared in very rich houses (bungalow) to get this name for this snack.
