I want to begin by expressing my heartfelt gratitude to my mother for making this recipe possible. Without her guidance, I wouldn’t be able to share this amazing Keto Namkeen recipe with all of you. If you’ve been missing the delightful crunch of namkeen snacks while on Keto, get ready to thank me for this one!
For those of you familiar with Mumbai and Pune, you’ve probably indulged in the famous Chiwda at some point. It was a personal favorite of mine, and since adopting the Keto lifestyle, I’ve been yearning to create my own version.
So, I reached out to my mother, and she shared the traditional recipe with puffed rice, which I then modified to make it Keto-friendly. The final result completely blew my mind.
Each bite is infused with the aromatic flavors of curry leaves, roasted cumin, and tangy chat masala. I couldn’t resist making a large batch for myself to enjoy guilt-free during my next movie night.
In this recipe, I’ve used a combination of almonds, dried coconut, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, whole flax seeds, and dried cranberries. Feel free to customize the nut selection based on your preferences and what you have available at home. I opted for coconut oil to fry the ingredients, but olive oil works just as well.
This Keto Namkeen can be stored in the refrigerator, staying fresh for up to two weeks.
