Gujarati Sadi Bhakhri (Gujarati Plain Crispy Roti)

Gujarati Sadi Bhakhri, traditionally it has been farmers food and it's a healthy one, one of the everyday breakfast in households of Gujarat. If not breakfast , you will see them appear in your dinner plates. Crispy yet buttery, almost like savoury biscuits and can be eaten with various things like, curries,instant raiti gor keri pickle , chutney, yogurt, chaas and Indian Masala Chai or even on its own.

Traditionally Bhakhri is made with coarse wholemeal wheat flour,which is full of fibre and many other minerals, that is why it is advisable to consume it in the morning or dinner time as it's good for digestion, especially people in rural areas preferred having Bhakhri than normal chapatti. In the evening they prefer saadi khichdi, saadi Bhakhri and milk or chaas ( Buttermilk ).

Although to make Sadi Bhakhri, you will need just few ingredients, but flavours can be altered by just adding a couple of spices to it to make Gujarati Masala Bhakhri.

Bhakhri can be cooked with two methods, some people roast Bhakhri on the Tawa ( griddle ) whereas others cook one side on the tawa and rest of the side direct on the heat and serve it with the ghee.

The most popular and traditional Gujarati Plain Bhakhri which is very simple to make. Bhakhri stays fresh for a longer time and useful while travelling or great for kids lunch boxes.

We love Bhakhri and Gujarati Bateta Jamanvar Nu Saak for breakfast, I think it's the best Gujarati combination you can find in Gujju thali :)
