Khakras are extremely popular snacks. They are nothing but thinly rolled out masala (or plain) chapatis which are made crisp over a tava (griddle). Khakras are readily available at most farsan shops and I get stumped at variety they come up with each time. The other day, I came across pav bhaji khakras, Punjabi masala khakra - the list was endless! You can however use the flavour you like the most or simply plain khakras or even tortilla chips! This recipe uses khakras (broken into pieces) topped with paneer, sweet corn and green peas tossed in an aromatic tomato topping. This is a recipe that the entire family will relish. It is elegant and truly simple to prepare!
