Ingredients for Bhakri :

  • Bajra (Pearl Millet) Flour – 1.5 cups
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp
  • Water – as needed (app. 3/4th cup)

How to Make Bhakri :

  1. Add salt to the water and bring it to a boil
  2. Take the flour in a mixing bowl and make a well in between.
  3. Pour the hot water little by little and keep mixing with a spoon.
  4. Now knead with your hands to form a soft and elastic dough.
  5. Take a lemon sized portion of the dough.
  6. On a clean surface, flatten the dough and keep pressing with your palm. Use some dry flour to prevent it from sticking to your hands.
  7. Continue pressing till you get a flat bread about 6-7″ in diameter.
  8. Heat the tawa / griddle in the meantime.
  9. Gently remove the pressed flat bread from the working surface and transfer it to the hot tawa.
  10. Sprinkle few drops of water to the top side of the bhakri to prevent it from getting dried out.
  11. After about a minute or 2, flip and cook the other side.
  12. Once both the sides are cooked and brown spots appear, remove it from the tawa.
  13. Spread some butter/ghee on the bhakris and serve with any side-dish.
