Baked Oat Poori
Puris , plain or stuffed, baked or fried, are a snack that Indians cannot live without. Here is a version that you can binge on, without any guilt. Made using fibre-rich oats, the Baked Oats Puri is flavoured with sesame seeds, garlic paste and kasuri methi too.
Baking instead of deep-frying the puris helps reduce the calorie count. Store it in an air-tight container and take along to office, school or even on a journey.
