Kajalben..Bhakhri ma moan nahi pade? Mane khyal nathi etle poochhu chhu...I thought ke pade chhe..
Thanks for reminding me of this dish...it looks so so good and tempting...cha bhaakhri and gol-keri...that combination takes me 2 steps closer to heaven :)
I think I make it almost the same way...except I add ajmo (ajwain), and make the dough almost entirely with khaattu dahi (sour yogurt) and of course add moan.
Thanks for sharing, and keep posting all the lovely gujarati recipes..

archana said...

Kajal this is looking awesome. Why did you bring the sides together? Any particular reason ?

lakshmi said...

I have made Bhakhri just once - I used just curd to knead the dough.

Does bringing sides together give the Bhakhri layers?

SeeC said...

Perfect shape kajal.
You come with lot of different recipes.

Sharmi said...

masala bhakhari looks nice but does it become hard and dry unlike rotis?

Hello Archana,

Yes, every body ask why your puri, roti and all this things puff so I give on step if your puri and bhakhari is not puff then you try with bring the sides together and roll up again. This is one way to make it but this is not necessary my dear.......

Thanks for your nice words and TAke Care.:))))

Kajal said...

Hi Lakshmi,

Kajal said...

Hi Sharmi,

Yes my dear you are right. Bhakhari become hard or crispy if you like soft then you put this entire one over one after cooking and put all this is closed bowl so this is not become much hard and you use with your curry also. Mostly we use in breakfast....:))))

Hi Kajal,

Its amazing you have so much in common as me.

I recently lost my beloved mom in July 08 and she was from Ahmedabad.

I was due to visit her in January with my husband from New Zealand.

I had one question among so many other recipes from my mom.

Can you please post the correct measurements of Tea masala ( Chano masalo).

Thanks a ton!!!
