Amaranth Diet Namkeen

Nutritious Rajgira Namkeen Many of us don't know that Rajgira (popped/ puffed Amaranth)

is loaded with protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins. Yes its true amaranth grain is a very impressive nutrient profile and this is my absolute favorite too. You must have tried my previous recipe of namkeen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boBKq...), so now sharing a new recipe for a change with you. This namkeen is best alternative for cookies/biscuits/chips for evening snacks which is gluten free and so versatile. You can have this diet namkeen in navratri fast & any fast also. This easy namkeen recipe using amaranth seeds is an ultimate "kur mura" snack, you can munch on when you have those cravings. 

Here is the recipe of my version amaranth namkeen.
