Puffed Bajra bhel is with mild masala flavored and it is completely gluten free. This savory Bajra works well as a perfect evening snack for kids. You also get plain Puffed Bajra and other variety of puffed millets too in Organic Shops. I went in for a mildly flavored bajra with very little chilli powder, grama masala and salt.  Un flavored puffed millets can be used as a morning cereal when added with milk, nuts and fruits.

They make a healthier option than the artificially flavored cereal flakes sold in shops. Including of millets in diet is a much necessary requirement for a fitter n better lifestyle.
Replaced papdi with millet flakes which gives the same crunchy texture to the bhel. Also added sprouted moong for protein intake. Potatoes can be avoided if you feel than you dont need more carbs to ur day. Green chutney n tamarind chutney were in stock so just chopped everything, mixed them and my healthier, tastier bhel was ready in minutes.

Puffed Bajra - 2 cups
Millet Flakes / Papdi - 1/2 cup, crushed
Sev - 1/2 cup
Moong Sprouts - 1/4 cups, cooked
Potato - 1 cup, boiled n mashed
Onion - 1 no, chopped
Tomato - 1 no, chopped
