Directions

Step 1

Take jowar flour in a vessel and make a well in the middle. Add salt and warm water.

Step 2

Knead nicely to make a soft dough.

Step 3

Make round balls out of this dough.

Step 4

On a flat surface, sprinkle little jowar flour and pat the ball with your palm. Use flour as required. Keep flattening the ball in circular motion to make round shape like roti. Don`t make it too thin. Bhakri should be of equal thickness so that it get puffed.

Step 5

Keep ready a small piece of clean cloth and water in a vessel.

Step 6

Heat a griddle(or a flat pan) and slide bhakri from the flat surface and place it on the griddle. It should be in such a way that, the lower surface of the bhakri should go on the tawa(upper surface upwards). Lower the flame.

Step 7

Now with the help of wet cloth, spread water on the bhakri. Then immediately turn on the bhakri to cook the other side.

Step 8

Now remove from griddle and hold it on the direct flame. With the help of spatula, press a bit to get puffed.

Step 9

Roast on both sides till you get small black spots.
