Biscuit Bakhri

Biscuit Bakhri is a unleavened flatbread bread , made with whole wheat flour. It is smaller than chapati ,but thick , crisp and hard in texture .

 

Bakhri’s are popular in Rajasthan , Gujrat and Maharashtra . Each state has a slight variation , the Rajasthani Bakhri is made with whole wheat flour , a little chickpea flour and kneaded with milk . It’s crisp , and takes a while to cook . It’s as good as a biscuit , hence the name Biscuit Bakhri . Gujarat too has a biscuit Bakhri, but that’s for another day .

 

I knew that we had a biscuit bhakri from this state , but the addition of chickpea flour to it was something that I discovered on reading about it . Binding it with milk , made it really rich . The taste was very different from the Gujarati Bakhri that we make , quite heavy , but very delicious .

 

These Biscuit Bakhri’s were made for Rajasthani ki Thali , a state where due to water scarcity , food is made with a good shelf life . These Bakhri’s too can last for 4-5 days . If refrigerated , definitely longer . I love the breads that this state has to offer , the Tikar , Bajre ka Rotla , Missi Roti are just a few of them .

 

Biscuit Bakhri is a special flatbread from Rajasthan and it is a part of the Rajasthan ki Thali where I am posting Flatbread Special Thalis under the theme Thali and Platter Festival.
