Trust me this is THE Snack . It tastes delicious , its not a snack for me, on purpose I prepare extra chapatis, then our lunch/dinner is only kuskara. Now the question is why we use only leftover chapati, only one reason its hard to crush fresh chapati :). You can also use morning chapatis at night. Once I remember I saw chapati packet in Indian grocery store some 9- 10 chapati in one packet, I took that , Sam gave strange look but dint ask any question( Chapati from outside- Noway , I love fresh and soft phulkas). Next day for lunch I prepared kuskara and told him for this I brought that chapati packet :). It really came out well. Once I tried with whole wheat tortillas, it came out nice for me. Now there are so many options for kuskara. Just try this wonderful snack and let me know if you like it.
