Rice flour bhakri is a holiday breakfast dish at home as  we have to serve them hot.  Normally, I make it on a Saturday/Sunday for breakfast with potato stew.  My daughter loves this if I serve them hot.  Once I made the mix flour bhakri for myself and she happened to taste it.  Normally, they do not even look at this.  When she tasted it, she liked it and asked me to prepare for her also.  That day onwards, she started eating this.

Since I love to mix onion, bit of masalas in it, I prepare the way I am going to elaborate below the recipe.  If you make it only with the rice flour, you can call it as ari pathiri, a famous Kerala Muslim Cuisine which is served with non veg curries.

Here I am presenting the same with the potato stew which you would also love but mind you that you must have the same from tava to the plate.

Let us look at the recipe now:

Jowar or Sorghum it is known as has higher content of calcium.  Besides calcium, it is also rich in iron, protein and fibre.  In Maharashtra, Bhakri a kind of roti is made with this flour and served  hot with chutney and a blob of butter.  It is quite healthy and filling too.  We can make jowar methi thepla, jowar paratha, jowar ka uttappa out of this.

Let us have a look at the recipe now:

1/2 cup jowar flour
Lukewarm water
very little salt (optional)


take the flour in a wide bottom vessel.  add the lukewarm water slowly and make a dough out of it.  divide into equal portions (i made two out of this).  Heat a non stick tava, place one ball of the dough on the tava when it becomes hot. apply little water on your palm and pat the same and spread it on the tava.  after spreading the same, apply water on top of it.  allow to cook the same and flip to cook the other side too.  when the black spots start appearing, directly cook on the flame as you cook the phulkas.  serve hot with a blob of butter, green chutney,     dry lasoon chutney etc.

Bhakri (भाकरी bhākrī or Dhebra) is a round flat unleavened bread often used in the cuisine of western and central India, especially in the states of Rajasthan,GujaratMaharashtraMalwaGoa, and northern Karnataka. It is coarser than a roti.

Being a staple bread, bhakri is served with curdchutney, vegetables, and rice. It is made mostly from wheat flour, jowar flourbajra flournachni (or finger millet) flour, and even rice flour (in the Konkan region).
