Spicy sesame and whole wheat khakhras. I usually make a large batch of these and store them in an air-tight container for those hungry times. They will stay well for several days. You can enjoy them with a hot cup of tea and a spicy pickle of your choice. Omit all the masalas to make plain (or "sada") khakhras. These khakhras can be cooked using ghee or dry roasted to make fat-free or low calorie khakras.
