Herbed Jowar Strips with Spicy Orange Salsa

If you thought finger foods like chips and dips are impossible to prepare without oil, then this recipe of Herbed Jowar Strips with Spicy Orange Salsa is an absolute must-try!

A very unique salsa of oranges and tomatoes perked up with spice powders, is served with baked crispies made of whole wheat and jowar flours flavoured with herbs and spices. The herbed jowar strips are intentionally kept a little bland, in order to complement the spicy orange salsa perfectly.

Do not prepare the salsa too munch in advance as it tends to release water. Mix the salsa gently, a little while before serving, and place it in the fridge till ready to serve, this lip-smacking snack combo is a well-planned nutritional package as the vitamin C in the salsa helps your body to efficiently absorb the iron from jowar, thereby boosting your haemoglobin and immunity levels.
