Multigrain Atta is nothing but atta with 7 grains like wheat, oats, chana dhal, barley, ragi, maize and soya. You can find this atta in any Asian grocery store, if not you can go for normal atta or all purpose flours. Also instead of sugar, I have used jaggery which is nothing but unrefined cane sugar, again this can also be found in almost all Asian grocery stores. If you couldn’t find jaggery, you can replace it with brown sugar. The reason why I have used Multigrain instead of All purpose flour is just to add a bit of goodness to our regular normal snacking, enjoy the goodness with your friends and family.
