To make bhakri, combine whole wheat flour, ghee and salt in a deep bowl and knead into a firm dough using little water. Divide the dough into 12 portions and cook on a non stick tava to give a soft Gujarati Bhakri.

Bhakhris are a staple food to many. This popular Indian bread is known as Maharashtrian Bhakri and Gujarati Bhakri. whole wheat bhakri are best had hot and fresh.

I would like to share some tips to make the perfect bhakri. 1. With the help of a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 100 mm. (4") diameter thick circle. It should be thicker than paratha. If the edges crack too much when you roll the bhakri then you may need to add some water or milk additionally to make smooth dough. 2. Make sure you cook the bhakri on low flame. If you will cook it on high or medium flame, brown spots will apprear but the bhakri will left raw from inside.

Soft Gujarati Bhakhri are served hot with Trevti Dal for lunch/dinner. It is also a popular Gujarati breakfast relished with a cup of Masala Chai.

Pitla and bhakri is a traditional Maharashtrian combo, and we thought we should share a sumptuous Whole Wheat Bhakri recipe for you to enjoy with our Methi Pitla or Cauliflower Greens Pitla.

Nothing like a combo of Pitla with Bhakri. Eaten this steaming hot snack many times while trekking to the mountain top of Sianghad off Pune. Its yum and so cheap.
