What Biscuits make for best nashta with your Chai?

We asked our users what their favorite Biscuits are to eat with tea, and we compiled a post to share the response with our readers.

As we know, tea is a part of Indian lifestyles – something that most of the families wake up to. And if you are someone who loves to eat, tea is just an excuse to indulge a bit further. In-fact long wed couples, those of our parents and grand-parents age have tea-rituals – like the time of the tea, the places they sit and drink it, brand of Namkeen, number of biscuits, bakery of rusks everything becomes part of the tea story of a family.
We thought it would be good to know what biscuits are most popular in market these days and hence we posted a question in one of our Facebook groups. Here is the question and responses to the same…

Sukriti AroraSukriti AroraI am not a tea person. But biscuits are the first thing I eat in the morning. And this has been my routine childhood k zamane se. :p

Though I love all cream biscuits, chocolate and Jim jam are my favs.

Umang BhatiaUmang BhatiaAtta biscuits! and Jeera biscuits also
And the winners are :
While Parle G and Marie Gold lead the popular branded biscuits, GoodDay, 50-50 and Monaco also get a few mentions. However it seems that he most popular snack with Chai are categories in which no manufacturer has a clear lead, however there are a multitude of bakers and brands specializing in them.
~ Atta Biscuits (Atta Biscuits & Cookies) – Though the ones that you got made from your neighborhood baker, customized to your taste buds and ingredient quality remain the best option, however market these days has lot of versions available for the same. Btw.. Atta Biscuit literally means Biscuit Made from Flour – unrefined wheat flour in this case.
~ Rusk are another top category and they are available in a very wide variety – from gluten free to garlic flavors its all available out there on Amazon itself : Different Types of Rusks.
As much as we enjoy these goodies, lets not forget that these remain carb and fat dense food, and no amount of ‘healthy’ claim can convince us otherwise. Like everything else, enjoy them in moderation and try to source them from some local bakery close to home, if that is not an option, then buying them online is always an option.
PS : The picture of Baba Ramdev was added to give some sex appeal to this otherwise boring post.
