Course Main Dish
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 50 mins
Servings 3 bhakris


  • 3 cups rajgira flour
  • 1 tbsp green chili and ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds jeera
  • salt to taste


  • Take rajgira flour, chili and ginger paste, and jeera in a large bowl.
  • Add salt and mix well.
  • Now go on adding water (little at a time) to knead a firm dough. (Bhakri dough should be harder than the dough you make for chapati.)
  • Make 3 equal-sized balls of dough.
  • Roll out ball-sized dough to form a thickish-bhakri.
  • Make dents on the upper side of the bhakri with the help of a rolling pin.
  • Make small cuts on the same side using a knife.
  • Heat a clay tava (tavdi), and place the bhakri on the tava with the dented side facing down. (Make sure that the tava is hot else bhakri will stick to it.)
  • After that side is half done, turn over the bhakri and cook till the other side is fully cooked.
  • Now turn over to cook the half-cooked side fully.
  • Cook all 3 bhakris in a similar manner.
  • Add homemade ghee on top and serve hot.


If you don't have a clay tava, you can use your regular pan.
