The festival of lights – Diwali – is incomplete without its share of sweets that celebrate the festive spirit. However, one important part of the festivities is the savouries that not only add the much-needed spice to the festivities but also make for a heartwarming palate. One such favourite savoury snack that people like to indulge in all through the year and especially during Diwali is chakli. While most often it is fried, would you like to switch to the baked version for a healthy Diwali this year?
