Sweet and sour bhakri

Khatti bhakri (sour flatbread) as I have known since childhood is one of my favourite Indian bread! Flaky and delicious!

Ready to eat snacks were relatively unknown to me as a child. My mother would make some or the other snacks in no time to keep us happy and also feel full. This bhakri is one such snack (yes, as children it was a snack for us!) that she would make for us and we would happily relish it with a bowl of home made yogurt.

Bhakri, is a crispy biscuit like Indian bread. It is made of whole wheat flour, generous amount of oil/ghee and flavourings. Cooked over a low flame and pressed with some weight, it turns flaky and delicious. In this version of khatti bhakri, the flour is flavoured with sugar and sour yogurt, making it sweet and tangy at the same time.

  1. Hi Hema. Truly a labor of love. Sure it must taste good. What kind of press have you used while roasting the Rotis? Want to try it, but not sure I am up for the hardwork😌. Best wishes

    1. Hi Shri, thank you so much for writing in and appreciating 🙂 The press is essentially made of wood which we use to make Gujarati delicacies like bhakri and khakhra. Pressing bhakri with the weight makes it crispier and cooks evenly. Type ‘wooden press to make bhakri’ on google and you will see options.
