Hello everyone 
Today I have a very simple yet delicious no oil snacks recipe. With tea we always search for some snacks , may be it samosa , kachodi or any savory mixture but when it comes to calorie consciousness then we start missing these.  So here I have perfectly guilt free and filling snacks to go well with your coffee and tea without adding extra calories. I used multigrain instead of only gram flour to make it rather healthy and filling too. And also I used my left over rice in it so that it will also be consumed without any nakhare . Recipe is given below , hope you will like it.


Serves: 3-4
Time: 20 mins


1 1/2 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup each (bajra flour, jowar flour)
1/2 cup oats , grind 
1/2 cup gram flour( besan)
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder 
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp black pepper powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp chaat masala 
1/4 tsp asafetida ( heeng)
1 pinch baking soda
1/2 cup green coriander leaves, finely chopped 
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste 
2 tbsp yoghurt ( curd)
1 green chilli, finely chopped 
Salt to taste


Mix all ingredients together well. Now sprinkle some water and make a firm dough. Don't add much water at a time. Add little and try to make dough just to hold all ingredients together. Now make its tight thick log shapes and steam for 12-15 mins. For steaming, keep logs in a sieve and place it on a pot having boiling water and cover with lid , steam for mentioned time. Now let it cool for 5 mins then slice and serve with green chutney or sauce.Your guilt free snacks is ready in no time. Don't slice it immediately after cooking otherwise you will not get clean slices. If you don't want to add multigrain, then use only gram flour.

If you want some more zing in it then sprinkle little oil in a non stick pan, add some heeng, mustard seeds, green chillies and curry leaves , let them crackle then add sliced muthiyas and saute for 4-5 mins. Sprinkle some chaat masala on it and serve hot. In both ways it's a healthy and filling yummy snacks goes well with tea and coffee.

Hope you all will try this healthy snacks at least once and please let me know your feedback, they meant a lot to me.

Happy cooking....
