Ragi Bhakri is an ever-popular Maharashtrian bread that is homely and satiating. Here, bhakri transforms into a scrumptious chivda with a dash of spice powders and taste-enhancing ingredients like ginger, garlic and green chillies.

A tempering of mustard and cumin seeds boosts the aroma, while a basket of veggies makes the Ragi Bhakri Chivda even more sumptuous and tasty. This quick and tasty snack can be made with leftover bhakri also.
