My mother in law (Geeta Shah) made this dhebra frequently for us when she was her in Sydney. We would enjoy this healthy and delicious dhebra for break fast or dinner. She would make a few extra so that we can enjoy them the next day with a cup of tea on morning or evening. My son (Aarav) would loves to take them in his lunchbox to school with jam or butter.

So friends do make this healthy dhebra for your family and friend and please do share your feedback with me.
