I love multigrain and like to use it in my recipes as and when possible. The Coarsely powdered Multigrain adds a nice crunch to the dishes that are especially roasted, baked or fried.
A healthier version of Bajji that are shallow fried with minimal oil. Easy to make and guilt free to relish .I love to have these with my hot cup of Masala Tea when its pouring outside. An all time favourite at my place.
Best eaten hot. I will try the baked version soon.
