Jowar Til Nimki is a mouth-watering snack with the rustic flavour of jowar flour, the inviting aroma of til seeds, and the spicy touch of peppercorns.

The traditional Bengali version of this snack is made with maida and deep-fried too. We have turned it into a healthy treat by replacing maida with jowar and wheat flours, and cooking the nimki on a tava.

This keeps the fat content of the snack low, which is very important for diabetics to keep health issues at bay.

The Jowar Til Nimki can be enjoyed as an evening snack, and also be carried to work to stay off junk food.
