The Jowar Dhani Chivda promises a bowl full of crunchy fun! Indeed, this Holi specialty is made with yummy jowar puffs and roasted chana dal, seasoned with spice powders and tempered with mustard seeds and curry leaves.

A pinch of asafoetida is added to give the chivda a very appetizing aroma. For the Gujaratis, Holi celebrations are incomplete without this crispy treat, which is made in large batches and enjoyed by adults and kids.

Kids will also love this snack as it has a popcorn-like mouth-feel. You can even pack it in a dabba as a snack for school or work.

Other must-try chivdas in our collection include the Roasted Poha and Oats Chivda , Kolhapuri Bhadang Murmura and Khakhra Chivda .
