This one is keepers. An alternative for accompaniments with breakfast. Tastes great with almost all the breakfasts. I love to sprinkle some over even pohe and it takes the snack o another level. Most of the people know it as an side dish to our famous Vada pav. Great to sprinkle over podi dosa of you are short of time to make chutneys.
Stays fresh for a month or two.
