zunka bhakri

zunka bhakar for this event.

1.Heat a pan and dry roast the besan for 8 minutes on low flame. The besan will turn light pink and send out a beautiful aroma. Turn off the heat.
2.Chop one small onion and one small tomato. Also chop 2 green chillies and 2 garlic flakes.
3.Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan. Add ½ tsp mustard seeds and ¼ tsp cumin seeds. Wait till they splutter and then add green chillies, curry leaves, and chopped garlic. Once the garlic changes color (to light brown), add the chopped onions. Fry till the onions turn golden brown.
4.Add tomato and cook till it turns soft. Now, add besan, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, ¼ tsp red chilli powder, salt, and ½ cup water. Stir and check that no lumps are formed.
5.Cook for 5 minutes and serve hot.


1.Take 2 cups jowar (makes around 6 mini bhakris), add ¼ tsp salt, 1 tsp oil to it. Add water and make dough just the way you make for chapattis.
2.Heat a pan.
3.Take a big ball of dough and roll out the dough just the way you do while making chapattis. Sprinkle jowar flour to ease the rolling process.
4.Put the bhakri on the pan. Take some water and gently spread it on the bhakri. Cook for 2 minutes.
5.Flip on the other side and cook for 2 more minutes. Turn over again till there are brown spots on both sides.
6.Serve hot with zunka, onions(kanda), green chillies, and buttermilk.

thanks swapna for the recipe.

I make the zunka without the tomatoes. My bhakris never seem to rise! It has been a flop for me! Love the combination, and zunka is always thumbs up for me!
