Dhebra is an Indian bread, popular in Gujarati cuisine. It is made of bajra flour, alone or together with other flours, and is often perked up with different ingredients like spices and herbs.

Here is an appetizing Methi Makai Dhebra, made with a mix of maize, bajra and other flours. A large assortment of ingredients like fenugreek leaves, sesame seeds, ginger and green chilli pastes, and more, go into the dough, giving the Dhebra a mind-blowing flavour.

Although the ingredients are many, they are all common, everyday ingredients sure to be found in your kitchen, so any day you find some time, you can pop into the kitchen and make this mouth-watering Dhebra to accompany your evening tea.

Try other tea-time snacks like Bread Palak Pakora or Crispy Masala Puri .

Hi, Can I bake these instead of frying them? And if I do not have millet flour, what can I substitute?

Tarla Dalal    Hi, You can use any flour of your choice instead of millet. Yes you can try baking these at 180 degree for 15 to 20 minutes, flipping it once in between.
