Marie Jaanu.

I made time for blogging today. Yay! And today's post is going to be about FOOD! So, more YAY! :D

I'm probably one of the laziest persons you could ever meet. As much as I love cooking, I don't really do it all the time. So, today I will share with you an idea for a  really easy snack that you can whip up with minimal (read leftover) ingredients. Also, this requires no cooking or baking or frying. How cool is that? B)

As a kid, i used to live on Marie biscuits. I'm sure all of you have, too. It was a healthier alternative compared to all those cream biscuits. And since I was a fat kid (still am!), eating Marie biscuits instead of having Bourbon made me feel less guilty.
Even today, having Marie biscuit with my coffee on Sunday mornings instead of the ever-so-tempting Oreo or Bourbon, makes me feel like I have resisted the greatest temptation of all times. 

Judge me all you want, but i have had Marie biscuits with everything - jam, ketchup, coconut chutney, cheese spread, and god knows what else. This snack, the recipe for which I'm going to share, is the perfect ABCTB* snack. And, I have named it - Marie-Jaanu! :P (sounds lame, I know!)

Anyway.. Here's the recipe.

Time to make: barely 5 mins
You will need: 

  • Marie Biscuits
  • Pudina chutney/thogayal
  • Vadaam (fryums)
  • Some tomatoes (cubed)
  • Olives (optional)
  • Oregano (as much as you like)

  1. Spread some pudina chutney/thogayal on the marie biscuit. 
  2. Place the tomatoes, olives and vadaam on top.
  3. Sprinkle some oregano.
  4. Enjoy the unbelievable deliciousness! :D
I was so hungry and so engrossed in making this that I din take a lot of pictures but for this one. Enjoy maadi. :D

Try let me know how you like it.

More soon.

  1. Ok, that just looks dangerous. And I'm gonna try it for that reason :D

  2. haha.. as a kid, i remember adding ingredients like: jam, cheese, chocolate sauce, different condiments, et cetera... now, brown bread has replaced biscuits as the latter contains a lot of calories and carbs. :)
