Khakhra~~IC Challenge

Khakhras are crispy flat Indian bread quite famous in Gujarat, actually i came to know about this roti once i entered this wonderful blogsphere. To be honest without any knowledge about this crispy bread i have already prepared them when i was kid. Yep when i cooked my first chappathi, it turned out super crispy rotis as i overcooked it. Unfortunately i dont know about this Khakhras else i would have managed myself saying that i prepared the Gujarati famous bread when my mom scolded me for my overcooked almost burned rotis.These Khakhras can be prepared with variety of spices,greens and simply just with wheat flour.

Obivously i choosed simple,quick,easy breezy wheat khakhras. Vaishali of Ribbon's to Pasta's shared her friend's recipe for this month's Indian Cooking Challenge. Thanks Valli and Vaishali, we had our khakhras with spicy Andhra gongura pickle  prepared by my aunt who lives in Hyderabad. Both together tastes simply awesome, just loved this crispy khakhras with gongure pickle.


1cup Wheat flour
Salt
4tbsp Oil
Rice flour for dusting
Ghee (per need)

Take the wheat flour,salt and oil in a bowl,gradually add the water and knead as a soft dough.Keep aside for half an hour.

Heat a tawa in low flame while rolling your rotis.

Dust a medium sized ball of dough with rice flour and roll it as thin possible with a rolling pin.

Now cook the rotis one by one to the warm tawa and gently brush them with ghee.

Stack them one over an another and let them cool completely.

Heat again the tawa, gently place a roti with a towel press it from the sides to the centre,cook them slowly until they turns crisp.

Repeat the same process with the remaining rotis.

Once the khakhras gets cool completely,store them in air tight box and enjoy.
