They have a rich and pleasantly sweet taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture, which is achieved by using atta instead of plain flour. The biscuits might seem to be too soft when you take them out of the oven, but rest assured that they will get crispy upon cooling.

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!

Chocolates and mangoes – two of kids’ favourite foods come together to give the traditional muffin a super-friendly facelift. When kids bite into something they love, they are sure to gain a lot of energy and forget all their stress, especially during exam times. These yummy Chocolate Chip and Mango Muffins stay fresh for 3 to 4 days when stored in an airtight container at room temperature, so they are ideal to send to school in the snack box, or carry along when you travel. Muffins are perfect anytime treat - enjoy as Desserts
or as Sweet Snacks
Muthia is a famous Gujarati
snack, which apparently derives its name from the word ‘muthi’, meaning ‘fist’. Perhaps since the dough is shaped into cylindrical rolls using a gripping action of the palm and wrist, this snack is called Muthia.
Usually, muthias are made with a combination of besan and other flours. In this variant, we have made it using coarse whole wheat flour and it tastes simply awesome!
The crispness, aroma and spicy taste of the Crispy Whole Wheat Muthia are really appetizing. You can store it in a jar for 10-15 days and relish any time you wish with a cup of tea
, or take it along while travelling
Make sure the dough is very stiff. Instead of kasuri methi, you can also use fresh chopped methi or grated doodhi. It is important to fry the Muthias on a slow flame to make sure they are completely cooked and crisp.
Do not drain this on a tissue paper as it tends to stick – drain it well on a colander or plate instead. Cool, store in a jar and enjoy!

Ribbon Sev, also known as Ribbon Pakoda, Ola Pakoda or Ottu Pakoda in South India is a broad, ribbon-shaped sev that is super crisp because of the perfect proportioning of rice flour, besan and butter. The dough for this deep-fried snack is flavoured aptly with chilli powder and asafoetida, which give it a mildly-spicy taste.
You can surprise kids by serving the Ribbon Pakoda as long ribbons, but for the purpose of storing, you may allow it to cool, break it up gently into pieces of preferred sizes, and store in an airtight container. Enjoy this delicious snack with a cup of hot coffee
The Egg Roll is a unique and tasty recipe, in which cooked rotis are lined with an egg mixture, cooked again, and then wrapped with the yummiest assortment of onions, veggies and sauces.
With an amazing mix of textures and flavours, the Egg Roll is sure to appease young and old alike. It can be had for breakfast or enjoy as a mid-day snack.
It will be loved by kids too, but you might want to reduce the amount of chillies for them. You can even pack it in the tiffin dabba as it stays good for 3 hours.
While we have made the rotis with plain flour and butter, you can also make it with whole wheat flour. If you enjoyed the Egg Roll, you are also sure to enjoy other egg recipes like the Masala Omelette Pav

One such gem from the South Indian
repertoire is Butter Murukku, a melt-in-the-mouth savoury snack made with a dough of rice flour, urad flour and besan. A dash of whole spices like cumin and sesame contribute to the aroma and flavour of the murukku, increasing its irresistibility quotient.
When pressing the murukku through a chakli maker, make sure you press it directly into the oil. Also, ensure that you fry small batches at a time without over-crowding the oil, which tends to make the dough clump together.
