Fafda is a traditional Gujarati snack, which is kind of like a test of one’s cooking skills! This crispy besan snack requires a lot of practice, and once you master the art, it shows your culinary prowess.

You need to shape and loosen the dough tactfully, and also have to fry the Fafda on a medium flame. Otherwise, it will remain soft and not become crispy and golden brown like we need them.

However, Fafda is completely worth the effort and time you spend, and the outcome will be much appreciated by everybody apart from your own satisfaction and pride of biting into homemade Fafda!

You can also try other Gujarati dry snacks like Shakarpara and Masala Khakhra .
