This Pav Bhaji Khakhra is quite an off-beat snack. It might not taste like regular khakhras because it does not have oil, but it tastes fabulous in its own special way, with the peppy flavour of pav bhaji masala.

This healthy and chatpata snack can be carried along anywhere, to office or even on a journey, so you can munch on something healthy whenever you are hungry.

Can I use some safe preservatives in khakharas to make them last longer . I am planning to make commercially . If yes then which preservatives and proportions. Thanks

   Nitu, we don''t make recipes for commercial cooking. I suggest you need to run multiple tests and then check with a local lab to see if the product is safe to use.

True as the recipe mentions it did not taste like the pav bhaji khakhra available in the market, but I guess that''s because these are devoid of oil and ghee... But I liked these khakhras for my evening snack to munch on something flavourful while avoiding calorie laden chips.
