Gulabs ajwain khakras are tiny, delicious and crisp. Have you tried these before?

Khakras are thin, cracker-like snacks that are extremely popular in India. Usually made using besan and whole wheat flour and a handful of spices, khakras are available in multiple flavors. Some common ones are methi, ajwain, and black pepper. Some brands also offer experimental flavors like pizza seasoning and peri-peri. 

We picked up a pack of Gulabs Tiny Khakhra in ajwain flavor. Gulabs is a brand that offers a wide range of sharbats, masalas, khakras and instant drinks. In our Gulabs ajwain khakhra review we discuss the price, taste, texture and the ingredients used. We tried the tiny ajwain khakhra and here is what you should know before buying it!

Gulabs Ajwain Khakhra – Everything You Need To Know

Gulabs ajwain khakhra is available in full size and tiny size. These tiny khakras can be turned into small canopy snacks. 

We tried the khakras as it is and with some chilli pickle. Here’s our review –

1. Ingredients 

The ingredients used to make Gulabs Ajwain Khakhra include – Whole wheat flour, Water, Edible vegetable oil (Refined groundnut oil), Ghee, Edible common salt, Carom seeds.

Allergens – Made in a facility that also handles milk and milk products, nuts, wheat flour, tree nuts, black gram, soyabean, mustard seeds, sesame seeds and its products.

2. Flavor

These khakras are very light and the dominant flavor is of wheat flour and ajwain. We liked that the carom seed flavor is not overpowering and is very balanced. 

The salt levels are just perfect and when had with a pickle or any other condiment of your choice, it doesn’t become overbearing.

3. Shape and size

These are small khakhras and come close to our regular marie biscuits, size-wise. None of the pieces were broken.

Some khakras can end up being too dry and brittle. Gulabs ajwain khakras were neither. While these khakhras are fragile, they are neither too thick, nor too thin.
