During your first trimester, it is better to have dry carbohydrates for your breakfast to ease morning sickness. If you are fed up of regular biscuits and breads, try these crunchy khakhras instead. Make these in large batches so that you can have them in the mornings whenever you have the urge to eat something. The addition of til improves the iron content of these khakhras.
