For many, a cricket match is a game but for us, it’s much more than that. It’s about food, about getting together, together inching closer to an overall experience. Be it the test matches or one-day matches or T20s, the cricket fever has infected one and all and is only going to spread! This means most of us would sit through the entire match, perhaps, with a big bowl of munchies - be it in the stadium or front of our TV screens.
Every cricket match can be a wonderful moment bringing friends and family together to watch the tussles, eat and celebrate, feed off each other’s excitement, and when victory arrives scream in unison pumping in adrenaline like no single-seater can contain.
This match season, who are you cheering for? What’s making a louder noise? Your grumbling tummy or you in all the excitedness towards your favourite team? Are you checking up on the live updates on work breaks? Or turning your space into an evening match pad? Whistling and cheering or a running commentary, what’s your style? Don’t forget, whichever way you decide to cheer for your favourite players and team, you and your match buddies need to be fuelled to the T. And edobo is set to cater to your match-time munchies.
While you sit glued to your television screen in a desperate attempt to not miss a single moment, we want to make sure that you still get your hands on some drool-worthy snacks and beverages. Matchdays are no-cook days in our book. And we wouldn’t want you missing a crucial hat-trick while in the kitchen or on the phone with the guy who owes you a pizza. So while you stress over a run-chase or a nail-biting super-over, let us make it so that food is the least of your worries.
Our match-time munchies have got the much-needed flavour boost and wholesomeness packed for any given day. Especially match day!

Get your favourite Chinese Spring Rolls or wholesome Chicken Sausages for a spectacular game-night meal.

Crispy Onion Rings
Deep-fried, perfectly golden and super quick to make, these onion rings are undoubtedly one of the best-fried snacks to binge on while cheering for India this cricket Season.
Healthy & Tasty All-rounder
What if we tell you that one snack can cover health and taste both? Wouldn’t that be an ideal all-rounder performance? What’s better than having the healthier versions of your favourite snacks? Avocado-filled toast pieces (quarter the toast, whole wheat bread). Mash ripe avocados, and season with lemon, chillies, onions and tomatoes. Quarter whole wheat bread pieces - rub a little olive oil over and toast for a minute or so. Now, load the mashed avocados and serve.
Ghee-roasted makhana is a wonderful alternative to the fried snacks we love and munch on endlessly. Black chana sundal - boil black chana and season with a little oil, chat masala, onions, and chillies. Kala namak will also work wonders! Serve these around and watch the protein fill your tummies. Wheat crackers with quartered pieces of cheese topped with a fresh cherry (optional of course), pleasing not just to the eye but the palette too.
Masala Khakhras - load whole wheat khakhras with finely cut onions, chillies, tomatoes and some roasted and lightly crushed peanuts. And not to miss out on our favourite chat! Sukha bhel topped with onions, tomatoes, cucumber and carrots, can add in a little of the date and tikha chutney for effect. Don’t forget to top up with a lemon! So let’s make match-time bingeing guilt-free.
Refresher: Coconut Water
Cricket matches are known for a handful of dynamic duos; be it the lethal onslaught of AB de Villiers & Virat Kohli or the in-game chemistry of MSD and Suresh Raina; one player is incomplete without the other. Similarly, your match-time munchies are incomplete without a nice refreshing cooler. What can be better than a glass of Coconut water? It’s a brilliant thirst quencher that fills you up with electrolytes, making sure your cheer never loses thunder, even under the sun. This holds especially true during afternoon matches when the sun beats down on your Saturday and Sunday fun. So cool off with a coconut cooler.
Water is a great filler! Just add lemon, mint and some salt to your water. And voila! You have a drink that even quenches your appetite.
Celebrating Sweet Endings
Nothing marks a win better than desserts, don’t you think? We are with you on that! Get clean bowled on edobo’s Dessert Menu and choose from the season’s favourite Oreo & Cream or Choco Doodle Doo you cannot resist, or the chocolate cookies or cheese-filled crackers to make it a quick sweet bite.
