Added to 65 cookbooks   This recipe has been viewed 31832 times

When kids get bored of the usual rotis in their tiffin box, you can make an exciting snack with crispy khakhra instead! Made with wheat flour, khakhras are quite as satiating as rotis but can be quite thrilling for kids to munch on. Here crushed khakhras are pepped up with roasted chana dal, peanuts, cashewnuts, sev and other interesting ingredients, which will make the taste buds – and of course, your kids – to jump with joy. You can make a large batch of this Khakhra Chivda and store it in an air-tight container for 5-6 days, ready to send in the tiffin box anytime you wish. It can come in really handy on hurried days when you don’t have time to prepare an elaborate tiffin. Moreover, your kids would love it too! Also pack Quick Chocolaty Biscuits in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.
