Bhakarwadi happens to be one of my favorite dry snack which is full of sweet, spicy and salty flavor . All these flavors are mixed in one roll with a crunchy outer flour crust. It is an ideal snack which would stay fresh for a long time if stored in an air fried container . Today I bring to you the bake version of this savory snack .. I especially like the baked version as it is much healthier and not oily …
