Healthy spicy chatpata masala chana is the best option for some guilt free munching. It is a healthy treat for guests and family. Making this snack in an air fryer is no different from deep frying it in oil as there is no compromise in taste. Since it uses very little oil, you don’t have to worry about the extra calories.
In case you do not have an air-fryer, you can also make this snack in the oven. You will need to keep stirring in between to ensure that the chana is evenly roasted.
I store this namkeen and pack the same for my children as well, so that we can snack on it whenever we like, munching something during our tea break time.
