Baked Sev With Gluten Free Chickpea, Rice, Oatmeal


baked besan sev
Chickpea gluten free flour makes sumptuous snacks, agree? If you have any doubts, do give this besan sev a try.

I have been madly in love with chaklis ever since I tasted them the first time in my hostel 10 years ago. A close friend from Tamil Nadu - granddaughter of the then chief minister M.Karunanidhi- was my hostel mate. She introduced me to these crispy bites and my love for these crunchy snacks has only grown with time, though the health freak  in me makes me think twice before trying the recipe out.

My marriage in an odiya family has also guaranteed that I get a constant supply of chaklis to savor whenever I am in Odisha :)

baked sev with besan, oatmeal
Now since I have been trying to make everything healthier, I wanted to make chakli or sev for a long time. But never had the courage to do so.

Today tried my hands at sev making for the first time. I am happy with the results, since I chose to bake the crispies instead of deep frying them.

Is chickpea gluten free?
Of course, gram flour is gluten free.
