It is easy to ask somebody to give up unhealthy snacks, but it is quite difficult to achieve the goal! Instead, try treating yourself and your family to healthy short-eats like this Whole Wheat Methi Khakhra, which is so tasty that you will naturally lose your craving for junky snacks! Khakhra, the all-time favourite Gujarati snack is enhanced with a sprinkling of powered spices and sesame seeds, which makes it an irresistible treat for your palate! Made of whole wheat, these khakhras are a rich source of complex carbohydrates, protein and fibre. The sesame adds to the calcium quotient of this yummy snack, while methi gives iron to build your haemoglobin stores. Keep a batch of these Whole Wheat Methi Khakhras in an airtight container, ready to munch when you are hungry, be it at home, in office or even when you travel.
