Re-discover the joy of traditional tea-time snacks with these scrumptious Bajra Dhebras.
This is a famous Gujarati deep-fried snack made with a dough of bajra and whole wheat flour flavoured deliciously with spice powders, green chillies, ginger and garlic.
Curds and jaggery help to keep the dough together while also lending the dhebras a delectable taste and crispness. You can serve it immediately, or cool and store in an airtight container for a day or two at the most.
You can also try other interesting snacks like Bajra Onion Muthia or Methi Makai Dhebra .
- Combine the jaggery and curd in a small bowl and mix well.
- Combine all the ingredients along with jaggery-curd mixture in a deep bowl and knead into a semi- soft dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 40 equal portions.
- Pat a portion of the dough into a 25 mm. (1”) diameter and 1 cm thick circle in between your palms.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and deep-fry a few dhebras at a time on a medium low flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper. You can deep-fry 6 to 7 dhebras at a time.
- Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container and consume within 2 days.
