If you are a night owl, you are bound to recognize these yum midnight snacks …

Whether you stay up late because you have difficulty sleeping or because your summer routine reverses day and night or because you’re a night owl you’re bound to experience these midnight cravings!

PIZZA – because nothing satisfies a hungry stomach like a slice, or three, or five, of pizza.

Ice Cream – who cares if all you ate during the day was a plate of daal chaawal because you’re trying to lose weight? Calories don’t count after midnight. It’s a universal fact.

Rolls – your nearest eatery couldn’t be more thrilled with their location because a night owl like you is known to place orders for 3 chicken mayo rolls at 1 A.M. at least twice a week.

Brownies/Cupcakes – probably the only time you don’t feel guilty about munching on some chocolatey goodness is the nighttime. Click here for one of our favorite brownie recipes.

Sheermaal – you feel a little like it’s Eid every time you’re lucky enough to be able to appease your hunger with a gloriously warm sheermaal at midnight.

Leftover Biryani – this is the stuff dreams are made of. You can smell the biryani all the way from your room beckoning you to take it out of the fridge, mix some raita in and dig in. Leftover biryani is a blessing you embrace every time you get the opportunity to. Who cares if you wake up with a stomach ache the next morning because you ate too much? It’s the good kind of pain.
