We all know that it is impossible to satisfy a kid’s hunger with just main meals. They love to have snacks. Hence, most parents end up taking them for fast food or street food. Unfortunately, these foods can be unhealthy for kids. So, we bring you a simple recipe of chakli, a crisp spiral shaped snack. This is different from the typical one, as it uses whole wheat flour. It is a perfectly wholesome snack. You just need an hour for the preparation and cooking. You can prepare chakli for school snacks too. You can store it in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
