I love Gujarati food. The snacks that they make are varied and yummy. Khakra, fafda, dhokla and kachori are some of their popular ones. Khakra are made of various kinds. They can be used as a snack or for breakfast.They can be stored for a long time and ideal to carry during travelling.
The affair with khakra started long back at home. Children loved these when they were young and I always had a stack of these in my pantry. Methi , Jeera, Masala, Garlic, so many varieties were available in the bakery.
