Onions and sesame seeds add flavour to the otherwise bland Jowar flour used in these baked puris. At just 8 calories per puri, you can enjoy them without guilt! Make the puris in advance and keep them ready for those sudden hunger pangs.

Spicy Pudina Khakhras and Methi Crispies are also very handy to keep hunger pangs at bay.
