Great low calorie option for dieters. Roasted oats can also be added.I added dry roasted edamame to get some protein..

this chivda is a boon for dieters as is very healthy. i liked that the peanuts and daria dal are not fried. i made for my mother in law who is diabetic and is restricted to eat high cal foods especially fried snacks. however i make some variations when i make for my daughter, i add roasted poha, cashewnuts and raisins tastes good.
