Bhakri is an unleavened bread commonly prepared in Maharashtra and Gujarat, as well as in other states like Rajasthan. It is what you could call a very ‘homely’ dish, with a dense texture and rustic flavour. Made of nachni flour, a couple of bhakris along with any subzi, thecha or pickle is sure to keep you satiated till your next meal. It is however very important to serve the Nachni Bhakri hot and fresh off the tava as it will become hard when it cools.
