khakhra chivda is where crushed khakhras are pepped up with roasted chana dal, peanuts, cashew nuts, sev and other interesting ingredients, which will make the taste buds – and of course, your kids – to jump with joy.

When kids get bored of the usual rotis in their tiffin box, you can make an exciting khakhra chivda snack with crispy khakhra instead! Made with wheat flour, khakhras are quite as satiating as rotis but can be quite thrilling for kids to munch on. It is difficult to think of something new everyday for your kiddo’s tiffin so this is one khakhra chivda snack that you can use as their tiffin treat and I am sure the box would definitely come back empty!

You can also use this khakhra chivda as a Diwali jar snack and serve it to your guests or simply use it as an evening snack and enjoy it with a hot piping cup of masala chai . When I be craving for something tasty, I add in cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, coriander with little chaat masala to this khakhra chivda making it a chaat and kill my hunger pangs by relishing it!

You can make a large batch of this khakhra chivda and store it in an air-tight container for 5-6 days, ready to send in the kids tiffin box anytime you wish. It can come in really handy on hurried days when you don’t have time to prepare an elaborate tiffin. Moreover, your kids would love it too! Also pack Quick Chocolaty Biscuits in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.

This was just a delight to have along with tea in the evening..I gave it to my kids also in the dabba..I dint add chilli powder to it, as they do not eat spicy..I loved the addition of powdered sugar which gave it a yummy taste..Must try..
