This rice flour bhakri dough is not made like most roti or bhakri dough. In this recipe, rice flour is cooked with water and this is what lends a unique soft texture to these rotis.

Although you might have some slight difficulty in rolling the rice roti initially, you will get the hang of it within a few bhakris and then it will be a breeze! Traditionally these rotis are rolled also in a different way. Instead of rolling pin, they are patted with fingers and rolled to perfection. These are really soft and yummy and combine perfectly with spicy Red Chilli Thecha.

Tips for chawal bhakri. 1. After adding the rice flour to water at step 2 mix it continuously with the help of a wooden ladle. A steel ladle is usually not preferred as the dough may stick to it. Ensure that there are no lumps in it. 2. Knead the dough very well after keeping it aside so that it becomes smooth and rolling becomes easier. 3. Since rice flour has a tendency to harden over time, serve these bhakris immediately on preparation.
