Khakhra is a great snack eaten any time of the day. I love to have it with curds or break it into bits and mix it with sprouted moong. Khakhra also goes great with jiraloo and methya keri sambhar. As its very healthy and easy to carry around, i keep it in my office and its stays good for 2 to 3 days.
