Masala Khakhra, I usually make a large batch of these and store them in an air-tight container for those hungry times. They stay well for several days and make an ideal low calorie snack for you and your family.


With a little imagination and a wee bit of effort, you can spice them differently or even experiment with different kinds of flours like jowar , bajra to make delicious low calorie munchies.

Method for Masala Khakhra

  1. Put 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour in a deep, clean bowl.
  2. To this, add just a little besan.
  3. We will now add the cumin seeds. You can even add ajwain in this for a unique taste.
  4. Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder and hing. Since this is a Masala Khakhra, we have added these 3 masalas. You can try and experiment with more masalas like kasuri methi.
  5. Add the low-fat milk. You can even use regular milk or avoid milk altogether. But usually Gujarati khakhras do use a little bit of milk in the dough.
  6. Now add the oil and salt to taste. The oil will make the khakhra nice and crisp when cooked.
  7. Mix all the ingredients together so that the masalas are evenly distributed throughout the flour.
  8. Knead it into a soft dough without using any water. If you are not using any milk, then use water and knead. This dough should be kneaded just like a roti dough but a little harder.
  9. Divide the dough into 4 equal portions.
  10. Sprinkle a little whole wheat flour on the rolling board.
  11. Take one portion of dough, roll it in between your palms and flatten it on the rolling board.
  12. Using more flour for rolling, roll out the dough into a very thin 175 mm. (7") diameter circle. Make sure the khakhra is thin or else it will not be crispy.
  13. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the rolled dough onto it.
  14. Cook the khakhra on a slow flame till pink spots appear on both the sides. The flame here has to be slow because you do not want the dough to burn.
  15. Continue cooking the khakhra on a slow flame, while pressing with a folded muslin cloth or a khakhra press. The reason we press down on it is to avoid the roti from puffing up.
  16. Cook till it turns crisp from both sides till it turns crisp and brown on both sides. Repeat the same steps for the remaining 3 portions of the dough.
  17. Cool it completely and serve or store in an air-tight container for 10-12 days.

There''s no need of adding gram flour to it... It took away the original taste of khakhra... The simpler you keep it the better it tastes... Wheat flour, fenugreek leaves and salt kneaded with water taste awesome.

Plain low fat khakhras cooked without the use of ghee.... Spices perk up the flavour making it a great low cal snack option for weight watchers.
