Wheat, corn and chickpea flour bhakhri (multigrain crispy Indian bread)

Jump to Recipe

Bhakris are crispy and  slightly salty and can be eaten with any curry. It’s a traditional Gujarati bread often served with  a curry and  khichedi.   I love making different versions of crispy Bhakhris.  These bhakhris were made using a combination of wheat, corn and wheat flour.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of wheat flour (chappati flour)
  • ½ cup chickpea flour (Chana flour)
  • ½ cup coarse corn flour
  • 200 grams of salted butter or butter substitute if you are a vegan
  • a pinch of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of ajwain (caroway seeds)

Method

1. Sieve the three flours  in a mixing bowl.  Add in the ajwein and turmeric.

2. Warm the butter ( or any butter substitute)  for 10-15 seconds in the microwave and add it to the flour.  If using unsalted butter then add a quarter teaspoon of salt.

3. Using the warm water, knead the dough to form a very firm dough. . Once the dough is ready – keep it covered for 20-30 minutes.  Divide the dough into 8-10 small balls .

4. Roll out each portion of the ball into a  circle and using a butter knife, or the end of your rolling pin, make small indentations in the bhakhri.  These indentations stop the bhakhri from rising and thus making them crispy.

5.Cook each bhakhri  on both sides on a medium heat on a griddle (tava) or dry frying pen untill it’s golden brown.  Using some kitchen paper apply pressure to the bhakhri  to enable it  brown and cook properly.

6.   Apply butter or any  butter substitute  on the bhakhri and serve it hot  with any curry.
