Enhancing whole-wheat bhakris with some kind of stuffing is a great idea because it makes it more satiating and also adds more punch to it! In this Stuffed Urad Dal Bhakri, the idea is to make mini bhakris stuffed with a tongue-tickling urad dal mixture that is perked up with roasted and crushed spices.
These mini stuffed bhakris are cooked on a tava, which makes it suitable for people with high cholesterol or diabetes, without compromising on taste. The flavourful topping is also devoid of any fat. Two of these bhakris make a satiating snack.
Dip the bhakri in Garlic Tomato Chutney and relish along with a cup of hot Honey Ginger Tea .
