Sada Khakhra are a thin crispy flatbread made from wheat flour . This is one of the most popular Gujrati snack .
Sada is simple , just with salt , and no other spices . If you ever visit a farsan shop and the Khakhra counter you will be amazed at the variety that is available . We have millet Khakhras , variety Khakhras which have flavours like Paani Poori , Pav Bhaji , Manchurian etc . Then we have the basic ones , like Jeera , Sada , kotmeer etc . For kids we get chocolate , for health freaks we have oats , Ragi ! Among the so many variations one can’t miss the Dosa Khakhras , they taste just like a crisp paper dosa ! If you are interested in reading the so many amazing flavors that are available, check here. I bet you will we amazed!!
With so much variety available , still there are people who indulge into the tedious process of Khakhra making . I have made these only for the marathons , but I have a friend who makes them very regularly . Gujrati ‘s have a habit of making thin rotis , and they make a big stack , as a result you surely have leftover ones which take a new avatar . These leftover chapati is grilled in a toaster griller , it turns nice and crisp ! Perfect with some tea or coffee .
These have just a wee bit of salt , no fat ! But once they are out of the toaster grill , you could brush them with some ghee or butter . You could sprinkle some chat masala too .
The griller , toaster is a simple quick method and a innovative one , but the traditional way to make khakhras is over a griddle . First the chapatis have to be rolled very thin, then they are roasted and pressed with a kitchen towel . The whole process is done on a very very slow flame .You could check here for the traditional method of cooking these.
