This simple and delicious recipe is a real treat for diabetics and weight watchers . Chaklis, the popular Indian snack, is usually deep-fried and contains loads of calories and if made in a South Indian style it makes use of high glycemic index ingredient – rice flour too.

Here's how to make them using besan (which being low in glycemic index, assists in controlling blood sugar levels) and 1 tsp of oil to near perfection by baking them in an oven. Munch on them at anytime of the day when hunger strikes.

**Disclaimer:
However it is highly recommended that this recipe be relished by diabetics only occasionally and in small quantities. This is just a mere ‘treat’ and does not qualify for a regular diabetic menu.
