Tips for bajra dhebra. 1. Ensure the jaggery is grated thinly so it mixes quickly and properly with the curd. 2. The dough for this dhebra has to be semi-stiff. If the dough is too soft or hard, shaping the dhebra is difficult. 3. While shaping the dhebra, smoothen each portion well between your palms before shaping. After shaping the edges at the circumference should be smooth too and not cracked. If the edges are cracked, there are chances that the dhebra might open up while frying.

Can we use onions in this recipe? And how long do the dhebras last for?

Tarla Dalal    These dhebras will last for a day. You can add onions, but then you need to serve immediately.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Nazera, We have not tried baking it but alternatively, you can place it on a hot tava (griddle). Cook them on a medium flame using ½ tsp of oil, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Jigna, You can combine jowar and besan flour. Curd helps in binding everything together, we would suggest you do not alter it.
