A week in and it’s safe to say that FIFA World Cup fever has spread across the globe. Right from this fan who collected beers from each of the 32 participating countries to this fan who prepared his food to resemble the flags of competing teams.
In New York, where the matches are being telecast early in the morning, a cereal cafe has opened its doors so football fans can catch the match with breakfast. Luckily, in India, most of the matches are scheduled post-work hours, giving you time to make arrangements for snacks that will last you through the night.
If you've munched your way through every variety of chips available in the supermarket, it's time to put on the chef's hat and cook some snacks of your own. Pair them up with an assortment of dips and your hunger pangs will be put to an appetising rest. Your experiments in the kitchen with these snack recipes are sure to score a hat-trick like Cristiano Ronaldo!
