How to Make Tomato Khakras

  • Sieve flour and salt. Add other ingredients. Knead a soft pliable dough.
  • Cover and keep aside for 30 mins.
  • Divide portions into 1/3 the size of ping-pong balls.
  • Mould into a pattie, roll them as thin as possible (wafer-thin is good).
  • Use dry flour for dusting while rolling.
  • If you are not very fast, spread a clean bed sheet and put each round on it, as you roll.
  • Finish with all the dough.
  • Heat griddle and roast each round on it, lightly, on both sides.
  • Apply some ghee, rubbing two rounds against each other to coat both on one side. Pile up, and cool for 10 mins.
  • To make the khakhras:
  • Put one semi-roasted round on warm griddle.
  • Use a thick, kitchen towel to press.
  • On low flame, press and roast, lightly moving it on griddle in a circular motion.
  • When one side is light golden and speckled, flip and repeat for other side.
  • Repeat with all rounds. Pile onto a cloth as done.
  • Cool thoroughly before storing in an airtight container.
