Baked Ragi Chakli

A chakli is great evening snack that is best accompanied with tea. Though great for munching, they do not fall into the category of a healthy munchy. But, a Baked Ragi Chakl is definately a healthy alternative to the traditional one. It is baked, so you cut down on a lot of calories and who would have thought ragi to be a replacement for rice flour. With this recipe taste and health goes hand it hand.
