Savoury Muffins ( gluten free)

Savoury muffins are muffins with veggies, spices and herbs. These muffins can be had for breakfast, can be packed for lunch boxes or can be had as an evening snack. Sometimes we crave for spicy bakes or for our hunger pangs, these savoury muffins are a very good treat and healthy too. Bajra flour (Pearl millet/ kambu) is gluten free and has numerous nutritive value in it so, I try to use bajra in my day- today cooking and baking. These muffins are packed with proteins, vitamins and minerals which are very essential for a meal. They are perfect crowd pleasers. You can try it for your potluck and summer parties. Do bake these savoury muffins without fail for your family! Happy baking!
