A tasty, crunchy and less oily snacks for your tea time. The traditional process for making this namkeen is by deep frying soaked masoor dal and poha. But this is made with VERY less oil.
We all have a habit of munching some savory snacks at teatime or anytime or MOST time of the day 😛 In that case you cannot always eat deep fried snacks. So I wanted some tasty yet healthy and low fat snacks and this idea came to my FOODY mind 😉 I never expected any namkeen without deep frying tastes so well 😀
