We make lots of fried snacks in festival. But what about those people who can’t eat fried stuff for health reasons.

For those people we have to make something in less oil or without oil.

Try this microwave fried chivra/poha or flatten rice mix. You can’t get puffed chivra like deep fried. But its  more crunchy and yummy. I have used only few drop oil. You can omit it too.

So enjoy this delicious guilt free namkeen or savory snack.
