But I stopped buying it as i find that it is salty. So wanted to try it at home to control the spices in it. I have added the spices that I had and I like but the herb choices are up to you. You can do plain too. It disappeared in no time. It is simple recipe so you can do it whenever you feel like having some crispy snack or have some left over bread you can try this recipe
