Khichu is a quick and easy snack, which never fails to sort out a sudden hunger pang! This all-time favourite Gujarati snack has a dough-like consistency and a semi-spicy taste, which is very pleasing to the palate when had hot and fresh.
Here is a fabulous khichu made with bajra flour. It has a nice, homely taste that combines beautifully with curds, flavoured with spice powders and an aromatic tempering.
Serve the Bajra Khichu with Masala Dahi immediately after preparation as it tends to thicken very fast.
Have a go at other bajra based snacks like the Bajra Onion Muthia and Bajra, Rice and Sprouts Moong Puda .
