  3. 3

    Dust some dry flour on the dough ball and flatten it into a thin circle using the palm of your hand.
  4. 4

    Place the bhakri on the tawa and sprinkle some water on it. Once the sides turn brown and crisp, remove it from the tawa.
  5. 5

    Serve Bhakri with lahsun ki chutney with a side of onions and chillies.

Traditionally, Bhakri is a staple diet of farmers. It can be made with rice, jowar, ragi, or bajra flour, all of which are high in nutrients and dietary fibres. They take time to digest and make one feel fuller for a long time; hence farmers who work in the fields for long hours prefer to have Bhakri. It is served with onion, chutney, baingan bharta, or zunka (pithala).

Steaming hot, soft and luscious Bhakri cooked on chulha (Indian Stove), and zunka is a match made in heaven!
