Bajara or Bajari (pearl millet) is commonly consumed millet in many parts of India. It was one of staples during our childhood and mainly prepared as Bhakari in Maharashtrian and Gujrathi cuisine. Traditionally bajara is eaten during winter. Make this chatpati bhakari instead the regular one and spice up your breakfast.


Ingredients: 1. 1 cup bajara flour 2. 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (It will ease rolling bhakari) 3. 1 tbsp chilli ginger paste 4. 1 medium sized onion 5. 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander 6. 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds 7. 1/2 tbsp red chilli powder 8. 1/4 tbsp turmeric powder 9. Salt to taste 10. Ghee for roasting bhakari 11. Water as needed 12. 1 tbsp oil for rolling and a plastic sheet


Tava, grater, laddle

Step By Step Method

  • 1. Grate the onion in a bowl using medium side of grater 2. Add fresh coriander to it and gently crush it with hands 3. Add bajara flour, wheat flour, chilli ginger paste, salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and sesame seed in the same bowl 4. Mix well with your hands. The mix will become moist due to moisture of onion and coriander. Now using little water at a time make into stiff dough 5. Cover and keep aside for 5 minute. Now divide the dough into small balls. Apply oil to plastic sheet, place the dough ball onto it, cover with another half of the sheet and roll into small bhakari. I prefer making mini bhakari so it is easy to handle. 6. Heat tava and roaste the bhakari till golden brown on both sides. Apply ghee while roasting Repeat for all bhakari Serve hot with ghee or butter and fresh curd! Enjoy your winter mornings breakfast with this healthy hot spicy bajara bhakari!
