Quick Navaratan Mixture

     Most people are big fans of Haldiram’s products. I tasted Navaratan mix and checked out the ingredients. I tried this mixture using the same set of ingredients except boondi. It was a big hit at home and I recommend this for festival snacks as it is very easy and very quick to make.
