Jowar khichu, a traditional jowar flour snack flavoured with spices and garlic. If you wish to make this recipe ahead of time, remember to sprinkle a little water before reheating it in the microwave.
Sesame seeds add crunch, while garlic and curds enhance the khichu’s flavour. Baking soda makes it softer, but ensure you add the suggested amount or it can turn into a disaster.
