Winter is a lovely season and there are many things that we love about winters such as warm clothes, foggy nights, coffee, bonfires, BBQs and dry fruits. Dry fruits are simply loveable in winters. At the start of the season people stock up dry fruits at home to enjoy the cold, with the heater on. Dry fruits are a perfect winter snack and can be easily carried also in small packets of coat pockets. Dry fruits taste even better along with a cup of hot coffee or tea. Kashmiri chai which is also known as pink tea is also very popular in winters.
