How to Make Pitla and Bhakri

  • For Chilli-garlic thecha:
  • Coarsely pound the ingredients together in a mortar.
  • For bhakri:
  • Season the flour with salt.
  • Add yoghurt and water to the flour to make a soft dough.
  • Take a small ball of dough, dust with flour and pat it on your palm to flatten it out.
  • Roll out to make a round flat bread, as thick or thin as you desire.
  • Place this carefully on a griddle, roast, flip and roast the other side.
  • Put on direct flame for a few seconds to make it crisp.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • For pitla:
  • Make a smooth paste of the besan, turmeric powder, lemon juice, salt and buttermilk.
  • Add the ginger-garlic paste, spring onions and green chillies.
  • Heat the oil in a wide pan. Add the mustard and cumin seeds and allow them to splutter.
  • Add the hing and curry leaves and fry for two minutes.
  • Add the besan batter, stirring to prevent any lumps, and bring to a boil.
  • Add the seasoning and cook on low heat for 7 minutes.
  • Serve hot with bhakri, chilli-garlic thecha and white butter.
