A nutritious and wholesome millet bread that energizes the farmers of maharashtra
- jawar (millet) flour – 3 cups
- table salt – to taste
- til (sesame seeds) – 2 teaspoons
- pure ghee – 3 tablespoons
- Place the millet flour and salt in a deep bowl. Gradually add 2 ½ cups (50 ml) water and knead into a stiff dough.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal portions.
- Place a small plastic sheet on a flat surface. Take one portion of the dough, roll it into a ball and place it on the plastic sheet.
- Wet your fingers with water and pat the ball into a thick, flat disk of 6 inches diameter. This is the bhakri.
- Place a non stick tawa (griddle) on medium heat. Let it heat for 2 minutes, then place a bhakri on it and sprinkle a few sesame seeds over the bhakri. Apply some water on the entire surface of the bhakri so that the sides do not crack.
- Cook the bhakri on medium heat for 1 minute on each side. Then place the bhakri on open flame and allow it to puff up. Turn the sides and let it puff up again. Similarly make all the remaining bhakris.
- Remove from heat and smear with pure ghee and serve hot.
