Do More With Your Khakhra
Few snacks are as popular as the khakhra. Having crossed geographical and cultural barriers, the khakhra has become so famous that it is easily available in supermarkets all across the country and in Indian stores in other parts of the world too. What makes the khakhra so popular is the fact that it is so handy. It is dry and easy to handle, but as satiating and tasty as a chapatti.
This famous Gujarati snack is nothing but flat rotis that are cooked till crisp, by pressing them on the tava using a muslin cloth or a khakhra press. Khakhras take a little time to prepare but it is worth every second spent, because it will be relished by everybody. You can make a batch of khakhras and store them in an airtight container for about a week. It is convenient to pack a few khakhras in your bag to munch on when you are hungry, whether you are travelling or working in office. When at home, just relax in the evening with a khakhra and a cup of hot tea or coffee.
It is possible to make different types of khakhras by incorporating the right ingredients into the dough. The dough itself may be made with wheat flour or a combination of flours, like the Oats Methi Multiflour Khakhra and the Nachni Sesame Khakhra. Methi is a popular flavor-enhancer as far as Nachni Khakhra are concerned, because it gives a pleasant bitterness, which is appetizing. Unleash your creativity and perk up your khakhra with the choicest seasonings like mint or pav bhaji masala. You can make your khakhras large or small, like the Mini Nachni and Bajra Khakhra. Mini khakhras are convenient for kids to handle. They can also be enhanced with toppings like chopped veggies or herbs and served as a starter!
The khakhra is as versatile as the roti and the sky is the limit when it comes to variety! You can try the interesting khakhras given in this mailer, and then use the ideas to create your own.
