available in almost every Indian household. With such simple ingredients and
simple preparation why would anyone go to buy a packaged product was the
question which was in my mind till I received the samples of Britannia Masala

and the seal can be opened easily. The bottle is handy and you can carry it
with you easily.

the fridge as you can carry them with you when you are going out in hot sun or
