A bowlful of pitla would seem quite incomplete without a plateful of bhakri to go with it!

Pitla and bhakri is a traditional Maharashtrian combo, and we thought we should share a sumptuous Whole Wheat Bhakri recipe for you to enjoy with our Methi Pitla or Cauliflower Greens Pitla .

Enjoy this bhakri hot and fresh, and without any guilt as it is made with whole wheat and using very little oil too.

Nothing like a combo of Pitla with Bhakri. Eaten this steaming hot snack many times while trekking to the mountain top of Sianghad off Pune. Its yum and so cheap.
