A Maharashtrian friend of mine shared the basic recipe of these bhakris with me. While I was making them at home one day, I tried adding some grated carrots, mint and coriander to add colour to these bhakris. Not only did it add colour to the rotis but the freshness of the mint and coriander complemented the rice flour really well. These bhakris are packed with carbohydrates, protein and iron. You will relish these with even the most simplest of vegetables or a dal.
