Bajra methi khakhras, ummmm, can you smell the inviting aroma of fresh bajra and methi khakras wafting in the air? although a wide variety of khakras are readily available in the market, nothing can beat the taste of homemade ones, painstakingly rolled and roasted one after the other.
- Combine the bajra flour, wheat flour, ginger-garlic paste, green chillies, fenugreek leaves, turmeric powder, oil and salt together in a bowl and knead to form a soft dough using enough warm water. Keep aside for 1 minutes.
- Knead again using oil till smooth and divide the dough into 5 equal portions.
- Roll out each portion into a 125 mm. (5") diameter thin circle, using a little wheat flour for rolling.
- Heat the tava (griddle) and cook on a slow flame using ghee until pink spots appear on both the sides.
- Cook the khakhra on a slow flame by pressing with a folded muslin cloth till it turns brown.
- Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container till use.
- To make ready to serve chaats, use pieces of khakhras as base and top with sweet corns, herbs and cheese.
