Nachni Chips are highly nutritious. Although they are deep-fried, they are made with nachni (ragi/finger millet), a healthy cereal. Nachni is high in calcium, rich in fibre and antioxidants, is gluten-free, increases bone strength, helps in digestion etc. 

So, if you are fond of chips, instead of eating store-brought chips, it’s a good idea to eat Nachni Chips.

The crispy, crunchy Nachni Chips allow you to eat chips guilt-free.
