Baked BhakarwadiBaked Bhakarwadi is a popular Maharashtrian spicy snack during tea time with family. Normally it is deep fried but if you want it the healthier way, then you can also end up baking them. There is less oil in it and it quenches your hunger in a much-refined way than the ones with oil in it. They can also be stored in batches and then stored for weeks to be consumed later on.
