Getting the right snack for Konda becomes tough most of the days. What with her specific interest, I am also breaking my head wondering what to send as snacks. Most times, I pack some wrappers, sometimes corn puffs. At times, we get sweets that she likes. But when you buy sweets, you got to ensure you complete them on time. So she will be forced to carry them for two days. By then she gets bored.
Then I make some snacks with bread. Most times I feel I am out of ideas. That's when these home made crunches, save. I made Sev, mostly they get completed the same time. Other options care Salt diamonds, or sugar diamonds as I call. Since I have never actually attempted at making a full fledged murukus, these were done with hope that I will venture into it.
To make these more healthy, we used sajja or pearl millet flour. These came out so delicious and kids simply loved. The bowl that was made was almost completed the same day.
