Khichu is a simple, easy-to-make, spicy, delicious and healthy Gujarati snack. This steamed rice flour item is popular in the state as a street food. Khichu is also known as ‘Papdi Nu Lot’, which means the ‘dough used to make traditional rice papads’. Khichu tastes delicious with achar methi masala and a sprinkling of oil. The many variants of Khichu include wheat flour Khichu and bajra flour Khichu.
