The Chawal Bhakri Chivda is a super tasty snack with a really different flavour. Here, strips of bhakri are cooked with flavourful ingredients like tomatoes, onions, ginger and green chillies to get a scrumptious snack.
Tomatoes give the chivda a nice tang and a bit of moisture, which works well with the dryness of Chawal Bhakri to give you a well-balanced texture. Onions on the other hand give a nice crunch and strong flavour, which is highlighted further with a dash of lemon juice and a sprinkling of chopped coriander leaves.
Enjoy this Chawal Bhakri Chivda immediately after preparation, when the texture and flavour are fresh and delightful.
Relish it with a cup of hot Elaichi Tea . You can also use rice flour to make other snacks like Rice Flour Chakli and Rice Panki .
