Leafy vegetables, especially methi, do wonders for diabetics by controlling blood sugar. Not only that, methi also does wonders to the flavour of any dish it is added to, with its unique, mildly-bitter taste and splendid aroma. Here, methi is mixed with whole wheat flour and oats to make a healthy snack, flavoured with sesame seeds and ajwain.

Curd is added to the dough to improve the texture of the Methi Crispies and also to impart a slight tanginess, which complements the bitterness of the fenugreek leaves beautifully. Make a batch of these Healthy Methi Crispies and store in a jar, to enjoy with your favourite low calorie dip.

Baked in just 15 minutes, these crispies are a very healthy choice for diabetics to snack on. The wheat and oats flour lend their fibre which along with fenugreek is considered to control blood sugar levels. Adding carom seeds can be personal choice then.

Healthy and tasty. Crispy like khakhras with methi added to give a nice flavor. Hardly any oil used and baked to perfection. If you compare these with the supposed diet crispy snacks in India, they add a lot of oil to the batter. Follow this and eat home made snacks. Far healthier !!!
