Poha Chivda

Monday, October 20, 2014

The Deliciousness from all those lovely Indian Tea Time Goodies doesn't come without its share of calories, fat & loads of guilt later post indulgence. But we love those Farsans don't we?

This Poha Chivda that I have for you today scores relatively low on the calorie count, This involves no Deep frying, has about 2 tbsp of oil & It does not contain APF :) How better can it get?

Hope your Deepavali preparations are in full swing this year. I just recovered from a nasty case of flu & I am still resting.. I am going to give those deep fried goodies & sweets a miss this year, Wishing you all a cracker of a Diwali :)
