This Gujarati staple is traditionally made and served with a lot of ghee. Here is a healthier version made using just 1 teaspoon of oil. Mint and chillies add flavour to this popular snack, one of my favorites. Use innovative toppings for added taste. Carry them with you on your travels and you'll find it much easier to make new friends!
