Baked in just 15 minutes, these crispies are a very healthy choice for diabetics to snack on. The wheat and oats flour lend their fibre which along with fenugreek is considered to control blood sugar levels. Adding carom seeds can be personal choice then.

Healthy and tasty. Crispy like khakhras with methi added to give a nice flavor. Hardly any oil used and baked to perfection. If you compare these with the supposed diet crispy snacks in India, they add a lot of oil to the batter. Follow this and eat home made snacks. Far healthier !!!
