- Heat water in a pan. When boiling add salt,and the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
- Take off the heat and let rest for few minutes till cool enough to handle. Knead the dough for a few minutes to make it smooth.
- Meanwhile heat a tava or griddle on medium heat.
- Make 2 balls of the dough.
- Take a piece of foil and put the ball on it and put another piece of foil over it and then roll using rolling pin to make 3/4 cm in thickness(thick like a paratha).
- Lift the foil along with the bhakar and then flip the bhakar on the hot tava, foil side up, take off the foil and reuse to roll the next bhakar.
- Cover with a lid and let the bhakar cook for few minutes on one side, then using a spatula flip it on the other side and let cook till few brown spots appear and it puffs up like a roti.
- Take off the heat and apply a little oil or ghee and enjoy with dry khobra(coconut) chutney as in the picture.
- I prefer mine plain or dunked in hot tea !!!!!!! And so do my kids :)
Sometimes Ma used to add dill leaves(shepo leaves) or grated cucumber to the dough.
I add chopped spinach leaves or grated butternut squash or zucchini to the dough for a change and extra nutrition for my kids.
1 cup yields 2 bhakars, you can double or triple the quantity as required.
