Snacks don't always have to be fat traps! plant chemicals found in buckwheat help maintain blood flow and prevent fatty clot formation, while isoflavones in soya curds keep blood cholesterol levels under check.

Nice, tasty and healthy recipe...three important ingredients are used like buckwheat, soya curds and ragi which are not only fibre rich but also loaded with calcium.
