Fafda

Fafda is a very popular traditional Gujarati snacks. The recipe is made of gram flour and spices. The crunchy Fafda, Jalebi and roasted chili is a awesome snacks combination and generally it is served to guest in the same manner. Although not very hard but recipe requires some practice so don’t get disheartened when you are trying first time. It would need some practice to get it going.  Generally Fafda is deep fried however I also tried baking the same and that too came out pretty tasty.
