#RBLockdownCookbook – Day 08 – When it comes to comfort foods, our list is nearly endless isn’t it? Khakra, for eg, it reminds me of my days in the US. The best part about this recipe – it’s oil free, needs very less ingredients and above all, long shelf life. Toh aaj chai ke saath Khakra ho jaaye? 🙂 Course: Snack
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4 people Ingredients 2 cups wheat flour + 1 cup for dusting 1 tbsp kasuri methi (optional)
Salt to taste Process
For Wheat Khakra ● In a clean bowl, add wheat flour, salt and kasuri methi. Mix it together. ● Add water as required and knead a soft dough. ● Once the dough is prepared, place the dough in a bowl and set aside for 15-20 minutes, covering it with a muslin cloth. ● Divide the prepared dough into equal portions of lemon sized balls. ● Roll these balls into a thin disc while dusting whole wheat flour as required, to avoid the rolled dough from sticking to the surface. ● Heat a thick tawa on low flame. Put the rolled dough on it and roast for 20-30 seconds on 1 side then flip it over. ● Roast it by pressing it with a folded cloth to make sure no bubbles appear. ● Flip it over and roast again while pressing with the cloth, continue roasting on low heat till it becomes crisp and forms brown spots. ● Set aside to cool to room temperature for 15-20 minutes. ● Serve with tea. #BehomewithRB #khakra #oilfree #comfortfood #recipe #BehomewithRB #stayhome #staysafe #gujju #snacks
