Cook on a hot tava (griddle) on both the sides with a little ghee until pink spots appear on top of the rolled out dough. With the help of a folded muslin cloth, press the khakhra from all sides and cook till crisp, over a slow flame. Repeat for the remaining to make 6 more khakhras. Cool and store in an air-tight container.
