“Khichu” in Gujarati is actually a dough from which traditional papads are prepared. However, this dough alone is so delicious with raw groundnut oil that people eat it as a snack.
Khichu can be prepared with different flours, rice, Jowar, Bajra or any other.
It is a quick snack.
I chanced upon this snack recipe while looking up for something oil-free and gluten-free, yet tasty, to make for my daughter and this was an instant hit.
I have taken the liberty of marrying the Andhra Spice powder with the Gujarati Khichu and they lived happily ever after.
