I am from baroda and this snack is like must have breakfast on every sunday for my husband. till now my husband used to get it packed from outside but then last week i planned to surprise him on his birthday by preparing it and after lot of research on net, i decided to follow this recipe as it had also links to preparing ragda and its associated chutneys. Its simply fantastic as my husband exclaimed after taking first bite.
