Baked Mixed Flour Spinach puri

            

I have now almost stopped frying and use my oven to the fullest for making different types of snacks. The nonfried snacks are a  healthy option to munch on when hungry. It is also good to pack for the school lunch boxes.  I had earlier shared with you the recipe for the following baked snacks –

Today I am sharing with you the recipe for making baked puri or cracker with mixed flour, oats and spinach. The flavor of the puri is enhanced with spices, ginger garlic green chili paste, and sesame seeds. I had khakra masala or mix masala which is made from black pepper, rock salt, coriander-cumin powder, salt, mango powder. I have sprinkled this mixed spices on top of the puri while baking. It is optional to sprinkle this masala. I prefer adding it while baking as it enhances the flavor of the baked dish.

My friend (Sandip Chandak) visited us at Sydney for tea. He lives in Melbourne and had come to Sydney for his office work. I offered him these baked mixed flour spinach puri and he was amazed by the taste and crispy texture of the puri. Not only did he eat the puri with tea but also asked me to pack some for him for his stay in Sydney.

This puri can be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or tea, afterschool snack, packed for kids lunchbox, can be carried while traveling,  it can also be made for a potluck party. Your guests will be impressed when you offer these during festivals like Deepawali or Holi.

So friends try your hands on making this delicious non-fried puri and I am sure it will be loved by your family and friends.
