Bajrichi bhakri


Cereals like bajri , nachni and jowar have less starch in them and hence cannot be easily rolled out into rotis.

But they are rich in iron, calcium and hence need to be regularly added to our diet. Its better to have such bhakries atleast twice a week it not daily .

 I have made these bhakris in a similar way we make rice bhakris i.e by steaming the flour in hot water.

When bajra, nachni and jowar flour is steamed like this it helps in formation of gluten which makes them sticky and helps in rolling the rotis easily.









Ingredients :

4 cups ........................Bajri flour
4 cups ......................water
1 tbsp........................ghee
salt



Method :

Heat the water with salt and 1 tbsp ghee.

When it starts boiling add the flour and immediately start stirring it.

All the flour should be properly mixed with water.

Cover the pan with lid for 2 to 3 minutes.

Then again stir it nicely and put off the gas.

After about 1/2 an hour knead the dough when the mixture is still warm.

Make balls and roll like chapatis .

Roast them on tawa and serve with ghee or butter along with any dish of your choice.


Note :

If the mixture becomes cold it will be difficult to knead the dough and also wont be able to roll the rotis , they will start breaking due to dryness.
