Diwali & Baked Methi Quinoa Amaranth Khakra ( Gluten-free , Vegan)

Featured post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

It is that time of the year again – Diwali 🙂
My timeline is full of beautiful, home-made sweets and savouries, lovely clay diyas, some colourful rangolis, friends who are going home ( or coming back home), pictures of families together.
It is also filled with warnings of how smog is hitting the country, cracker factory accidents, animals getting scared and also hurt.
And the only words that come to my mind are – “If it isn’t good, let it die. If it doesn’t die, make it good.” Ajahn Chah
On that note, Happy Diwali to all of you and your loved ones !
Here is one of the things I made for snacking during these holidays. And my little girl loved eating them !
