Spicy Pudina Khakhras

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. You can use innovative toppings for added taste. Carry them with you on your travels and you'll find it much easier to make new friends!

For added flavour spread some Mint and Onion Chutney or Garlic Tomato Chutney on the khakhras and enjoy it as a tea time snack.
