Traditionally, we in India we call them kuttu and singhara atta / flour respectively. We make fried breads and pakora/ fritters which are eaten with the select few vegetables and yogurt. To give the menu a twist and make fasting food a little more fun.I tried these tortilla chips. A lot of people eat once a day or twice a day during fasting. Making this as an appetizer before makes the meal complete and a bit fun.
