This simple snack can be made in a jiffy with readymade khakhra, and is a smart way to outwit sudden hunger pangs without reaching out for junk food!

Tossed together with peanuts, daria and other crunchy stuff, this Healthy Khakhra Chivda has a very exciting mouth-feel. A couple of masalas add to the flavour making it an absolutely awesome treat.

We have avoided using sugar, which is usually added to chivdas, and we also suggest you use plain oil-free khakhra to make this snack to ensure that it is totally healthy. You can carry this chivda in an airtight container to munch on whenever you are hungry.

Try other snacks like Methi Crispies or Pav Bhaji Khakhra .
