Thin and soft or thick and crispy, Bhakri is made with different combinations of flours in various regions of India. No matter what the combination, the results are delicious.
- 1½ cups (375 mL) Golden Temple® Durum Atta Flour Blend + extra for dusting
- ½ cup (125 mL) sorghum flour
- ½ tsp (2 mL) red chili powder
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) sesame seeds
- 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) ghee
- ¾ cup (175 mL) water
- Mix dry ingredients with ghee in a large bowl. Slowly add water. Use hands to combine and form smooth dough.
- Heat tava or heavy bottom skillet over medium high heat.
- Lightly dust rolling board with flour. Use rolling pin to roll each ball into circles about 3½” (8-9 cm) wide. Lightly dust dough while rolling to prevent sticking.
- Place rolled dough on tava/hot skillet. Cook for about 15-18 seconds, until it starts to change colour and small bubbles break the surface. Use tongs to flip. Cook other side for 12-15 seconds. Flip. Use a muslin cloth to apply gentle pressure while moving it in circular motion, 12-15 seconds. Flip and repeat on other side, 8-10 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Wrap in a clean dry cloth. Place in wide container. Serve with ghee and garlic-cilantro chutney.
- Bhakri stores well and serves as great travel food. Make them thicker and apply ghee as you remove from skillet. Wrap and store.
